Will this work with Sprint GeNex's?
No it will not. Not sure where you can get files for Sprint.

if I'm already rooted and unlocked from using your original ice cream sandwich tool from a few months back. What do I need to do in order to install the 4.1.1 from your toolkit and use that? I imagine that is the official Verizon source and might be better to have on my phone as an original backup. I am on bugless beast right now. Is it worth it for me to use you new 4.1.1 toolkit so I have the Verizon source on my phone and then just Room over that? Thanks.
I didn't really build these scripts with updates in mind so it's a little cumbersome. You can either use the 4.0.2 or 4.0.4 unroot kit to flash back to stock then take the OTA update from VZW, then the 4.1.1 root script or try the 4.1.1 unroot script from your current setup then use the 4.1.1 root script.
Whatever path you take, back up everything you want to keep including your (virtual) sd card.
Took me a couple of tries, but I got it working. Thanks!!!! Only problem is that Superuser and Wallet still appear in my apps list. How can I get rid of them? I unrooted and rooted then did each again, but the apps still show up.
The superuser apk should be deleted when running the unroot script. You could do a factory reset to get of any residuals left over.
I can't figure out what is wrong. I also tried Wugfresh's toolkit on a PC and I did a factory data reset in the Backup & reset section of Settings on the phone. Is that another deeper factory reset or is that it?
Did you get any errors when running the script? After running the unroot script you really should be 100% stock.
I also tried it to root and everything was great. once I was rooted i updated to TWRP and restored my previous backup. All was perfect and so simple to use.
looking forward to using once you have updated the root for 4.2
