  1. Ran this file on my 2.3.6 Kies-ed Ace then ran CLockworkModAce and I notice some odd behaviour: 
    1. the Home key doesn't show recently-run apps when long-pressed or the Home screen when short-pressed
    2. got FCs with processes called 'adservice ...androidapp.secad?'' and 'provider.drm'

    Do these sound familiar? Might it be something else?  It doesn't seem very likely, but what do I know**?

    Hope you might have an idea or two.

  2. It certainly doesn't sound familiar to me... This might not be due to rooting at all. But, I suggest you do a backup of your important files and data and then go to stock recovery (not Clock Work Mod recovery) and then wipe data and cache (will remove all data in internal memory) and then flash this root file and reboot. Now, it must be working fine and then restore your data and apps.
