    When you say you lost Super User, what exactly do you mean? Are programs saying they don't have permissions? If so, do the following:

    Open a Terminal Emulator (if you don't have one, search market for terminal)

    Type the following (EXACTLY) in the Terminal Emulator's window using your physical keyboard:

    su

    mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system

    chmod 755 /system/xbin/busybox


    mount -o remount,ro -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system

    sync

    exit



    That usually fixes permissions issues.

    Do you have the superuser app in your drawer?
    Do you have Root Explorer? (you don't need it, but its another way to determine if you have lost root)
    In terminal emulator if you type su do you get the # symbol for your prompt?

    You could follow the first few steps in the first link in my signature to root again, if you determine you've lost root.

    If you apply a rom or theme - backup first!
    If you don't know how to backup...Stop until you do.
    hint: I name my backups like this: sg6.0_20100428 or ss4.2_20100626 to easily find them later. rom and date.
