I was rooted, now superuser is denying permisions. everything was running fine for about a month, it downloaded the .621 update but I haven't installed it and don't plan to. my ? is do I need to unroot then root?

Go into setting and make sure your phone didn't install it on its own first

this is just lin-sanity

no still version .605, superuser wont grant permison to droid wall, ti backup or root explorer and it did a week or so ago
data use seems to still be under control but I can't make any changes. the only things i have added are the above three
opera browsers, and google apps (voice, docs, +.........etc

Does it keep saying permissions denied? You may have to go into superuser and allow permissions again.

some how i lost root, root checker is denied superuser permisons, droidwall is no longer in superuser, and Ti backup is in superuser but denied permisons.
I have used the petesmotorolaroot tool v1.06 before, should I just root again w/ that? do I need to run it through unroot 1st even though I lost root?
Any advantages to using the zurgrush or d3 methods to root again?

also I didn't do anything w/ bootstrapper before

If permissions are being denied that doesn't mean you lost root. You'll have to force close the apps you want permissions for and superuser should prompt to allow again.

I installed root checker and it was denied permisons right off the bat I wasn't asked if I wanted to allow. force stoped droidwall and opened again went to apply firewall and it says phone is not rooted.

so now I guess I just root again and cross my fingers?

Some apps say you're not rooted if they don't have superuser permissions. Open superuser and tap any app that is in there. Do you see two half android faces at the bottom?

Also, make sure your SU app is up to date, go into settings and scroll to the bottom, and tap on SU binary.

I get "this updater cannot update the su binary on phones that have some kind of write protection on the system partition like S-ON you can continue to use Superuser with your outdated binary, or update su with ROM Manager"

Alright well you're up to date. You said titanium backup is listed, is there a smiling android or a frowning android next to?

In Superuser Ti Backup is listed w/ a green dot (allowed) but it does not show Ti backup pro?

just realized Ti B Pro is no longer in my apps either , in(market place) my apps I can uninstall Ti backup pro but can't open

TiBu pro is just a license key...open up main (free) app to see if pro features enabled

Everything looks correct, you should be rooted. Outdated binary, fd permissions, faulty apk's have all messed with my root. Once I accidentally denied su permissions to su lol. Also make sure busybox is installed correctly....seems like I lost root once by messing around with busybox installer and accidentally installed in wrong place

Ti Back up opens but can't get root, so all signs point to loss of root?
where to look for busybox? I remember seeing it when I first rooted
root again?
sbf?
