    You guys could also try flashing a rom that has super user built in like TSM GB. Don't update superuser from the market.

    Thanks, jnt.

    Unfortunately, clockwork would not get me there, apparently b/c of the SU problem. But I restarted and loaded the zip the long way. I think I've got root back, but I'm unsure it will last. I previously loaded an older SU zip (another, and I got root back but then lost it somehow. Anyway, root seems to be back.

    One weird observation: After installing the zip I restarted and went straight to SU. It FC'd. Other apps, however, still got root access and worked. I then went back to SU, and now it opens just fine.

    So I'm now running SU, as well as binary 2.3.2-efgh. I assume I need to avoid updating not just SU but also the binary, right?

    Thanks again!

    That's good, the long way is what I was referring to.

    I'm still not sure why you lost root access, but yes, it might be best to not update.
