    Thanks,

    Why wait for the OTA? when you can flash 4.0.3 now! Most of the ROMs are pretty close to what you'll get stock. Just a few extra options in the settings.
    BBStorm > S2 > DX > DX2 > Galaxy Nexus
    SGT > Xoom

    Thanks,
    To answer your question, Yes you should be able to root again.






    Before you flash anything can you get back to stock? How to get back to stock using Odin



    Have you backed up your files and pictures? I see too many desperate cries for help recovering deleted priceless pictures with no solution.

    Is flashing a 4.0.3 kernel and ROM effectively the same as receiving an OTA update to 4.0.3?

    Version wise yes but official OTA's can have some changes (good and bad). I personally had better success with custom roms/kernels.
