    Run "adb shell"
    Run "/system/xbin/su"
    Watch your screen for Superuser app to prompt for permission and click "allow"
    Run "mount -o remount,rw /dev/block/system /system"
    Run "cp /system/xbin/su /system/bin/su"
    Run "chmod 4755 /system/bin/su"
    [optional] Run "mount -o remount,ro /dev/block/system /system"
    This seems to be a fairly common problem.

    But what if you didn't move su to xbin? I didn't move any files previous to update and lost my root.

    I think the only way to do this is to SBF and start over

    OMG, this fixed my problem! Apparently in my situation, rather than moving su from bin to xbin, I copied su from bin to xbin and that caused my problems. Silly me! This worked perfectly for me and I now have root again, and on FroYo without having to revert back to SBF and reupgrading! Thanks so much! I stumbled across then as I was trying to find help on applying the SBF to try again - you saved me a system wipe, which I definitely appreciate!

    Lol lucky you =p I put the su file in the wrong folder when rooting on my girlfriends so thats where i went wrong... so just need to find an app to back up her app data without needing root.... i can at least get her user app data.. no system app data... or i can wait for froyo root... she doesn't need root despritely .. so might just do that.

    I'm sure some people are, but I doubt it's an insanely high priority right now like it was for 2.1. Give it some time and there will be something, I bet...
