I think I lost my root after flashing a rom I went from liberty to miui and everything works just fine with the exception that my root apps will not work, my superuser is gone and when I used root checker it said I didn't have root access BUT when I first started it was there but it still didn't work now its gone so I have done several factory resets and cleared cache but nothing helps I have never seen this and I have been flashing roms a while now but this has me messed up does anyone have any answers

With miui you have to go into the settings and enable root access

Even when I choose an app it ask me if I know what root is and to make sure I am rooted and so on I guess I will have to sbf back and start over

Check over in the dx2 miui thread at xda, to see if there's been any reports, and special steps needed to retain root after flashing.

I checked too, didn't find anything, you could try and reflash.

I was going to try and reflash but I couldn't get su permission so I just did a sbf and started over but I did find a discussion where this has happened to other people but it was taking to long getting to the point so I just fixed it myself thanks for the help anyway I appreciate it some input is better than none
