I updated to 2.2. I lost root. Has this happened to anyone else?
Yeah. Happened to me too. Waiting for help from the gurus. Phone says I'm still rooted but all rooted apps do not work. Oh well. Just gotta wait for help from these pros. Until then...sit back, relax and play with Froyo.
I lost root as well. I didn't perform the following steps first.....
navigate to the /system/bin folder and hold down the su file, then select move
navigate to the /system/xbin folder and press the menu button (4 squares)
select edit and then paste
Does anyone know how to regain root after making this mistake?
I'm in the same boat as you guys. Show's I'm rooted, but no access.
Jdltek - Try this:
Run "./su" it to get a root terminal from /system/xbin/su
You should see a #
Run "mount -o rw,remount /dev/block/system /system"
Run "mv /system/bin/su /system/bin/su.bak"
Run "cd /system/xbin/"
Run "cp su ../bin/"
Galaxy S4 - Stock (For now)
im not 100% positive on this but i think if you upgraded without root you gotta sbf back to 2.1 and redo it.
Unless someone puts out a new root method.
not %100 on that but i havent read anywhere about a straight root method from stock 2.2.
maybe the alternate download in the news section with 2.2 root might work?
good luck to you
