View Full Version : Just SBF'ed, rerooted and still no root? Frown.

Was rooted and awesome, did an OTA (face palm) and lost root access. Phone was being slow and screwy anyway so I used this (http://www.droidxforums.com/forum/droid-x2-hacks/41697-tool-ezsbf-dx2.html) to SBF (great script) and then rooted using the same program.

All looked really good until I installed LEDs Hack (reason for rooting in the first place) and superuser denies permission.... LEDs Hack suggests ROM manager (vaguely remember having to do that the first time), ROM manager denied permissions too... Superuser doesn't ask like it did the first time I rooted, denies automatically even though SU settings are set to Prompt, not deny.

Looks like I'm not actually rooted. Any chance I can run the one click root that I used successfully the first time around? For some reason that sounds too simple.

I would rather be totally unrooted than have a non-working superuser app on my phone... I'm at a loss at what to do. Don't wanna SBF again. Sad face.

Thanks for helping!

In order to keep root on 2.3.5 you MUST follow these steps;
-> SBF to 2.3.4
-> ROOT USING PETE'S ONE CLICK METHOD!!! Download and install VooDoo OTA Root keeper from Play Store
-> Use VooDoo to back up root
-> Use VooDoo to temporarily unroot (Do not delete backup)
-> Accept the OTA, download and install 2.3.5 OTA update
-> Use VooDoo to restore root

You are now rooted on 2.3.5 :). If you plan on flashing Eclipse once on 2.3.5, make sure you delete your root backup from VooDoo before trying to flash. Not doing so will cause it to fail.

I swear I used this (http://www.talkandroid.com/55906-one-click-root-for-stock-gingerbread-droid-x-droid-3-droid-x2-cliq-and-cliq-2-from-the-forums/) to root from 2.3.5 the first time without losing any data at all. 5 min process. It doesn't specifically say that it does 2.3.5 on that page but I must have been referred to that method by someone that had done it successfully from 2.3.5. That was my root cherry and I was worried as hell.

Of course, it has big red letters that say don't use it if SU is on your phone already... :mad2:

I am on 2.3.5, that is what this (http://www.droidxforums.com/forum/droid-x2-hacks/41697-tool-ezsbf-dx2.html) SBF'ed me to then offered a root immediately after SBF'ing. There doesn't seem to be an easy way to unroot without SBF'ing, is that correct? Sigh, all this to make that damn LED stop flashing at night. I can't wait until July 9th...

Thanks guys, y'all are the mans.

this (http://www.droidxforums.com/forum/droid-x2-hacks/41697-tool-ezsbf-dx2.html) SBF'ed me to then offered a root immediately after SBF'ing that is 2.3.4 and zergrush root, don't use zergrush if you want 2.3.5, it will cause update to fail, use Pete’s Root Tools

I personally use the same ezSBF method with the ISO. If you read the instructions carefully, it does say it uses ZergRush method. So when you boot into that hit 1-enter (SBF with option to boot later) then root after with 1 click.

I'm confused. Pete's will root 2.3.5? I'm 99.99999% sure it worked fine for me last time from 2.3.5 and it kind of sounds like it will from your second quote, just clarifying.

Turns out my SBF (the ISO method) was supposed to go to 2.3.4 but failed in some way. I'm thinking it just did a basic reset to 2.3.5 instead. I lost all my apps and started over at the "welcome to android" screen so I thought all was good. I'm going to try it one more time, check that I'm at 2.3.4 then use Pete's to get to rooted 2.3.5. Hopefully... If it doesn't work this time I'll just live with whatever I get until July 9th when I get my shiny new S3. Which will not need to be rooted bc ICS gives you an OEM way to turn off the dang LED. Then I'll just have to fight to keep my unlimited data... :mad2:
