I was finally able to get back to 0.7.6 and then proceeded to try using the update.zip to get 0.7.8 but I've still lost my root access.
went from 7.6 to 7.7 to 7.8, all via nandroid backup. no root after i left 7.6. gonna try to go back to the virgin-oem, then update.zip for 7.8 to see if i regain root access. btw, went to virgin-oem w/root when going from 7.7 to 7.8 and lost root. will let folks know how it works out
i think the live wallpapers are somehow causing people to lose root. i tried just installing live wallpapers using a .rom.tgz and i lost root, so i think that might be causing the problem some how. i'm going to wait for a newer release before upgrading (from 7.6)

Just did the update.
But my phone is not recogniing when it is in the home dock or the car dock..
also. i cant lock the phone.. i click the top button and it doesnt lock... just turns the screen black but its not locked... i tried to even set a patter lock... and nothing happeneed... it wouldn't prompt me..
maybe im out of the loop, but i updated from 7.6 to 7.8, and now my firmware states 2.1. before i was at 2.0.1. i never got the ota update to 2.1. can anyone else currently running beast 7.8 verify if their firmware is now 2.1?
Current Phone: Galaxy Nexus; running smooth and with no complaints, thanks to dev Peter Alfonso. Keep up the good work.
Previous Phone: Droid (OG); unceremoniously dumped into the nightstand (I feel as if I should place it onto a wooden barge, set it afloat and light her on fire...).
Phone Before That: Doesn't matter.
ok, so it seems update.zip may be the way to go to keep root access. i can confirm i have root access thru term. emu. but now wifi tether is missing and metamorph will not install (says i need busybox and more memory....huh?) i guess we may have to wait till tomorrow for a fix from the man himself
