    I have the su app from a prior rooting (before the last update ota from verzion... running it shows busybox, ES File Explorer, Superuser, and Titanium Backup
    running Titanium Backup gives an error that rooting is needed to work and a red fail for being a rooted device.

    usb debugging is selected as in for the phone not to go to sleep... I attempted both a charge only and as per the instructions in PC mode... if I remember... in pc mode the program acted the same as when I used the multi device program and never seen the device after it rebooted (but I may be mistaken since I've attempted this a couple dozen times now).

    just because titanium doesn't work, doesn't mean your not rooted
    try updating superuser binaries
    open superuser/settings preferences/ general/Su binary tap to update
    it will say current version already installed click updated anyways
    or it will say new version available click update
    if supersuser can update you are rooted

    or check superuser log and allow titanium, , sometimes the popup doesn't work right first time, and times out

    Su app downloaded new binary - okay
    Gaining root access - fail

    again
    your checking usb debugging (settings/apps/development)

    and selecting charge only usb mode?

    also have you used MD5 & SHA-1 Checksum Utility: verify the hash checksum to ensure the file integrity is correct with the matching file
    I added md5 hashs to op (original post)

    Hey...
    I appreciate all the assistance... I'll play around with it... try and backup what I can, I really only wanted root to do good backups and clean up the phone.
    Thanks again for walking me through the steps. (ya probably have less hair than I do about now lol...)
    Laters...

    usb debugging is selected as in for the phone not to go to sleep...
    usb debugging allows pc special access to the phone
    verizon describes it as
    USB debugging is intended for development purposes only. It can be used to copy data between the computer and the device, install applications on the device without notification, and read log data.
    stay awake is just below it

    you didn't try voodoo ota rootkeeper, or have it installed with a su backup, when you took the update?

    Sorry I took a break from this... no, I don't have rootkeeper on the phone. I keep reading the instructions stating to flash, the cd/iso should be doing that before the reboots not me correct ?

    correct, most of the steps are automatically done by program

    could be something on phone preventing program to work
    which means wipe data and/or SBF

    or try a different pc, usb cable, usb port
