That method is for unlocked boot loaders.
Currently there is no way to root on 4.0.4 with locked bootloaders. But we will have ways to root on locked bootloaders soon. Just keep waiting.

Hmmm? Did not get you.
You can root without unlocking bootloader using exploits. Some way developers find out to acess protected files (Example: We have the ZergRush exploit to root GB .58).
But the companies, in their next updates keep adding layers of protection due to which the exploits do not work (Example: the .62 firmware disabled the ZergRush exploit).
Similarly, for the 4.0.4 there is currently no way to root locked bootloaders.
All this I think. Correct me if I am wrong.
