Motorola Droid :: Root 2.1 -> OTA 2.2 -> Lost Root But Superuser Permission Icon Still Appears

Aug 11, 2010

Here is the scenario:
Motorola Droid - Original

1. Rooted 2.1, then
2. OTA Stock Update to 2.2, then
3. Seem to have lost root, However - I still have the Superuser Permissions Icon.

I use Barnacle for WiFi Tether - I get a "Permission Denied" error when I try to start the application. I also went into the terminal emulator and tried an "su" which also gave a permission denied response. I tried "sudo" and also got permission denied response. Others have told me this is common with this progression of events. However, How do I now ROOT 2.2 in this scenario?

Motorola Droid :: Root-unroot Then Force Upgrade To 2.1 - Want To Root Again Back To 2.01

Apr 3, 2010

I used DroidMod to root when I had 2.01. When 2.1 became available, I "un-rooted" then forced update to 2.1. Well to be honest, it is really slow and laggy. I now want to go back to DroidMod, but nothing I have tried seems to work.

Motorola Droid :: Root Problems - App - No Root Access

May 10, 2010

I'm trying to gain root and having some problems...

I had my droid rooted for some time, running droid mod 1.0. All was well until recently the battery life turned to shit (followed all guides to resolve recent OTA update issues, but still shitty.) Because of this, I decided I would go back to stock, since I couldn't justify the rom's features if the battery would kick out after 16 hours. So I returned to stock no problem and received the OTA to upgrade to 2.1.

After getting the upgrade to 2.1, I wanted to at least have root access to run a few programs. I followed this guide:

http://androidforums.com/all-things-root-droid/63010-how-install-sprecovery-unrooted-2-1-ota.html

to get SPRecovery back on my phone. Everything went well, it all checked out. After that I used SPRecovery to install the root update.zip. This worked fine, the root access app is in my tray and everything seems to be fine... HOWEVER when opening programs that require root access (setcpu and adfree are the ones I've tried) they say I don't have root access. I have tried reinstalling the update.zip file to no luck. USB debugging is ON. Is there a special update.zip to gain root on 2.1 (I saw no posts about that)? Is there some setting I missed this time around that I didn't the first time I rooted?

Motorola Droid :: Root Before Activation?

Jul 2, 2010

Is it possible to root the Droid prior to activating it (you know, doing the *228 thing to be able to actually make calls and use data)? My wife's new Droid just arrived and I'm planning to put JRummy's Pink Froyo on for her. Thought it might be nice to have it done prior to her getting home from work. I'll obviously still be signing in with her google account and I have wifi at home should I need to access any data. But she needs her current phone right now and activating this new one would in turn deactivate the one she has with her.

Motorola Droid :: Root Loss

Jul 3, 2010

So I had Pete's virgin 2.2 release on my phone, ran fine, full root access.

Sapphire 7.0 was released, so what the heck, I formatted system/cache, and installed.

But...lost root somehow. No SU app, no access.

Applied su.zip in Recovery to regain access. Didn't work...

Applied it a few more times, rebooted...nada.

Wiped system/cache and installed CM6 Alpha 3...no root. Applied su.zip, still no su app, no root.

Nandroided back to my backup of Pete's virgin 2.2 release. Root.

Wiped system/cache, installed CM6 Alpha 3, no root.

W-T-F?

Never seen this before...always wipe system/cache before a new ROM, never lost root before.

Really appreciate any suggestions...I have access to CW recovery.

Don't understand how flashing a rooted ROM could leave me w/out root access, or why installing an su zip doesn't add SU back in.

Motorola Droid :: Root After OTA 2.1 Update

Mar 31, 2010

Is there a way to root after the OTA 2.1 update yet?

Sorry, I had my noob goggles on this morning and accidentally applied the OTA update after I did the baseband update so now I've lost root. I know, I know... that update file should never have been on my sd card to start with.

I did a backup with ROMmanager prior to these updates, but can't do anything with it now. Just need to root again so life can continue.

Motorola Droid :: Root 2.1 OTA That Has SPRecovery

Apr 24, 2010

Im new to this. I just got my droid yesterday, but Im no idiot when it comes to computers. I even did some adb commands for the first time ever late last night.(they mostly failed )I followed instructions in another thread on how to install sprecovery on a 2.1 OTA phone without rolling it back to 2.0.1 So Right now I have 2.1 OTA phone with SPRecovery. My question is what do I do next ? Install a custom Rom? I understand there is no way yet to root the 2.1 OTA. ( I found a couple posts on how do so but the update.zips did nothing for me)IF installing a custom ROM is the answer then can someone help me with that? will it install on my phone that has 2.1 OTA with SPRecover? what is a good ROM? I dont want something thats gonna lessen my GPS as I have read some roms do. Most of all Idont want to Brick my phone.btw I love this droid and Im excited to be on the android forums

Motorola Droid X :: Leaked 2.3.9 Root

Oct 3, 2010

I have, to me at least, a very stable 2.3.9 from when the original leak was pushed out. What a joy over 2.1!
I've been reading about deodexing, ROMs, Themes etc. Alot of this is for the OTA 2.2 which I find in my searches. All this requires root, which I am now prepared to do.

Is this the best way/most current way to root the 2.3.9?

Or will this work on the leaked 2.2?

I really don't want to go the route of downgrading to 2.1, then back again, nor do I want the OTA 2.2.

Motorola Droid :: How To Fix Root On Phone?

Apr 7, 2010

So i had my 2.01 rooted with super permisions, but never got around to installing busy box, custom recovery and all that stuff, i just couldn't figure it out. then i updated to 2.1 and my super permissions is still in the apps, but its pretty clear the root isn't working for me. i looked up how to root 2.1 and the guides say if i upgraded my root from 2.01 to 2.1 and try to 2.1 root it could mess things up. so my question is.. what can i do to "re root" my droid. so i can install a custom os?
