    I lost root wtf

    OK so all hell broke lose with chevys kernels. I flashed one got stuck on moto logo. Whenever I tried to gain root privileges I kept getting

    sh: /system/xbin/which: Permission Denied

    I tried restoring a nandroid backup I tried rerooting. What I finally had to do was to rerun the droidmod rom.

    Has anyone ever came across losing root before.

    It's happened to me a couple of times. There are any number of causes, so who knows specifically what you did. No big deal, you can re-root without losing any data.

    I am using Droidmod 1.0.


    I was trying to install Chevys 10 Slot 1.2Ghz Kernel using the update.zip method.

    I got stuck on the Moto logo and restored my partition using nandroid which booted me right up and Im assuming you lose root when you restore a boot or something I have no idea.

    One question to what dous 10 slot and 5 slot kernel mean.

    It just means there is literally more slots to choose from in the speed ranges. 10 slot you have more choices in between the min and max OC speed as compared to a 5 slot

    I really wants the 10 slot because I want the more refined setcpu selection any way to do that on DroidMod 1.0

    Yeah not sure about DroidMod. I think that is a 2.0.1 ROM (ESD56 based) and the kernels are 2.1 ESE53 based so I dont think it will work with DroidMod
