    Lost Root

    I rooted following the guide in this forum about a month ago. All worked great until last night when the market update apps including super user. It now appears I've lost root and my ability to wirelessly tether.

    Help!

    I assume by this you mean you got the 2.3.4 update. If so you are (hopefully) only temporarily out of luck. 2.3.4 hasn't been "cracked" yet.
    Hopefully it will be soon.

    Try manually booting into Hboot and selecting recovery: Hold power and volume down button. While in Hboot select recovery. IF you get into clockwork recovery try to restore a backup.

    Had an issue similar to that, Su updated to 3.0, and I was getting fc's all around my root apps. There was a flashable Su binary I was able to use. When I get back to my computer I can give you a link if you need it.

    Same problem here - SU update killed root. I've tried installing an older version (2.3.6), but that failed, as did restoring from CWM. Thoughts?

    There's a method on XDA to re-root 2.3.4, but you don't end up with a rooted 2.3.4 - it simply reverts you to 2.3.3 with .97 hboot, so you can do what you want from there. It's not for the android "newbie" though...

    Actually it really isn't that hard to do. However that isn't what the op is talking about. When they updated superuser they started getting fc issues with their rooted programs. I would attempt to uninstall the update and see if that corrects the issues. Then contact the developer about the problems you had. Good luck!

    Here rooty, rooty, rooty...

    Exactly. I've avoided the OTA updates to GB 2.3.4. It was the SU update that killed root.

    Unfortunately, I've tried dumping the update without success, as well as installing an older version of SU, and also flashing a recovery. All failed.

    The SU developer says there have been a slew of problems along these lines, but he hasn't had the time to release an updated SU.

    If anyone has found a fix for the dinc2, please post.

    have you tried flashing a zip file through clockwork to get root? if you haven't try this one: Dropbox - su-2.3.6.3-efgh-signed.zip - Simplify your life

    edit: for what it's worth, sometimes in cwr, it takes 3 or 4 tries before it flashes correctly... no idea why, but in case you run into an error
