    Did you install the update.zip from the OP? It installs SU, busybox, and runs a script that fixes the recovery image in memory -- otherwise the 2C. 7C. bootloader replaces it on the next boot.

    Yep. I use this method every time I root and this time it didn't give me Superuser. Never had this happen. I've booted and checked the recovery already and it's still SP.

    EDIT: I should punch myself in the face right now. I forgot to install the .zip after I flashed through RSD.

    Huh. Something may have just screwed up. Try re-flashing the update.zip and see if it fixes it. If not, try a root-only app you've already given permissions for.

    Sorry, sometimes I get so used to explaining everything I just go ahead and do it every time.

    Haha it's all good. Can't believe I forgot to do that though. My mind is slipping

    I believe that's when you hit start in RSD

    Flash a ROM or the OTA update and use this method to re-root.

    Have you tried downloading the update.zip again, placing it on your SD card via USB mass storage mode, and trying the install again?

    Have you already flashed SPRecovery on it? If not then you need to press the start button. I'm pretty sure that was covered in the OP, but I always suggest you read this thread as well as this one for using RSD Lite.
