    Lost root

    My DX was rooted until the new 2.3.330 update. I lost root, photos, and I cant change anything. I tried to do another one click root but it will not work. I have downloaded z4root-2.1.3.0.apk and it also will not install. Can anyone help???

    Did you try going into factory recovery and doing a wipe of cache and a factory reset?

    Also, I'm not aware of that update. The last one was 2.3.340.

    Hmm...have you installed z4root and it just won't root you or you cannot get it installed at all?

    I have the droid x. I did the one click root months ago and all was fine. The latest update 2.3.340 took away my root, photos, and now I cant download any apps. They all say error 18 when it tries to install and an orange triangle with a ! is on top.

    I downloaded z4root-2.1.3.0.apk when i hit it then hit install, i get application not installed.

    Will a factory reboot work? if so how do I do that?

    If you have bootatrapper just go in and wipe cache partition and wipe data/factory reset. If you don't have bootstrapper. Power the phone off. Press and hold power and home until a little triangle comes up. Then hit the search key. Once you get there wipe cache and do a factory reset and try all over again. Make sure you have a good z4 download also.

    hmm...yeah, it sounds like something might have gotten corrupted during update... you can try a factory reset and see if that works...if not you may need to sbf...

    there are 2 methods to factory reset:
    #1- via settings.
    Go into settings
    go to Privacy
    select Factory Data Reset

    #2 via Recovery
    power down phone
    power up while holding the "home" key
    when you see an Android guy next to a "!" inside a triangle, hit the search key
    select Wipe data/factory reset
    then select wipe cache partition
    do these both at least 2X

    You wont lose everything. All of your contacts are/should eBay synced to Google. When you sign back in all your apps will be in the market.
