    Droid X FroYo Loss of Root

    I used EasyRoot to Root my droid X back when I was running 2.1, and after I upgraded to 2.2, I lost root. The superuser icon is still there, and both Universal Androot and EasyRoot both say that I have root, but yet none of my root apps have root access. Anybody got ideas?

    You didn't backup su to /system/xbin/su so it'd keep it's suid privileges. As far as I know the only way to get root at the moment is to SBF back to 2.1, re-root, and repeat the process.

    I could be wrong on that though.

    I hope for my sake that you are wrong... Good thing I made a titanium backup before I upgraded... Also, anybody want to make me some basic instructions on how to restore? I've only gone forward before... I know how to use RDS Lite, as I've used it to flash SPRecovery to my Droid 1 before, just want someone to tell me exactly what I have to do and what I have to download. Thanks in advance...

    If you follow the instruction from the link on the main page you can get the new updated even with rooting and have your root after. Worked great on mine. (So Far)

    I already have 2.2... I just don't have root and will have to flash back to 2.1 and root, and go to 2.2...

    Anybody want to give me some RDS Lite instructions?

    Smile fix your root

    To anyone that has run into this problem I have a solution. This is for everyone that missed the step on keeping your root access. If you have su in xbin and still won't work this will work for you.

    (Open terminal emulator) type the following:
    /system/xbin/su
    Then 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/"

    Then you should have your root access again!
    and one more thing, don't type the word run or put the " " in this code

    Thanks... I already managed to get myself 2.2 and some root, though it took me a while...

    I used birdman's method after running an SBF on my phone

    I then used these commands in the ADB shell
    "mount -o rw,remount /dev/block/system /system"
    "mv /system/bin/su /system/xbin/su"

    I then installed the 2.2 update, and I still have root

    Make sure you restore your apps BEFORE updating... As this is a leaked release, you don't have access to the full app market...

    This post will be placed in a new thread to assist people who want to keep their root while updating... links will be placed for birdman's instructions

    So I tried that first part
    (Open terminal emulator) type the following:
    /system/xbin/su
    But I get this error: /system/xbin/su: not found

    I tried to paste the su in xbin using root explore and it would not let me put it in there before I did the update. Now i do not have root acces either and getting the same /system/xbin/su: not found message I guess its because its not there is there a way to get it there after I already updated and then use the emulator code??

    I'm just guessing but since Terminal Emulator says su not found, you still are not rooted. Moved to Rescue Squad Rooted section for further assistance.
