    Unhappy Lost SU Permissions, can't unroot droid.

    I don't know if I'm postin in the right place but either way I need the help. I rooted my 2.1 and accidentally wiped the data. The phone is still rooted but I lost my su status. Now I cant install any other rom, reload anyone of the roms I had before, or even go back to stock. Does anyone have any alternate ways of unrooting or regaining SU permissions.

    You are right to be wary. There is much bullcrap. Be wary of me too, because I may be wrong. Make up your own mind after you evaluate all the evidence and the logic. - Mark Rippetoe

    Root is Superuser access so if you don't have superuser access you don't have root.

    Well I still have the bb 1.1 rom on there and some of the programs even state that I am still rooted I just don't have access. So I don't know the exact technichal term, but there is something preventing me from unrooting.

    Root is superuser access. If you don't have superuser access you don't have root. Doesn't change what ROM you are running, doesn't even matter what ROM you are running as all that occurred while you had root access. ROM's don't require root to run, just to be installed. Since your "root" applications are telling you they don't have access....you don't have root.

    If a contradiction exists, I would follow the three R's:

    Reflash
    Re-root
    Retry.

    tcrews-Does that mean that I can just root it again the same way I did before?

    KZIwarrior thanks for the link. That sounds a little above me so I'll try it with my friend when I get home.

    No he's saying..

    So he doesn't have root. What he needs to do is ROOT his phone again if he wants to change ROM's, etc.. He doesn't need to un-root as he isn't rooted now.

    Two questions:

    1) Do you have the Superuser Permission app in the app drawer?
    2) When you open one of the terminal emulator programs and type in "su" and hit enter, do you get the "#" sign?
