    When I first updated the superuser was still there but I didn't really have root. I ran the one click root method by Darkonion and was good to go.

    I used the blur.zip -> update.zip manual update to 2.3.2, and lost root as expected.

    I tried your root method 1 in this thread and all seemed to go well. But when i rebooted and tried to get SU permissions it gets denied. SU in terminal results in "permission denied".

    One note, not sure if its related, but without USB debugging enabled the "./rage*.bin" step failed with "Cannot find adb: No such file or directory". I then retried with debugging enabled, and it was fine after that. Still no SU after reboot though.

    Superuser permission app is in my launcher screen, and it works fine.

    Help!
    Figured out my own problem:
    It seems when update to 2.3.2 and break root, the remnants of the root procedure from 2.2.2 (su, Superuser.apk, etc) need to be removed before redoing the root. At least, they did for me. I followed these instructions from here:

    - mount -o rw,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
    - rm /system/app/Superuser.apk
    - rm /system/bin/su
    * rm /system/bin/busybox
    - mount -o ro,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
    - reboot your phone. Toda, no more root
    Except, instead of the "su" step, which wont work, i subbed in the following:
    - cd /tmp
    - cp /sdcard/rage*.bin /tmp/
    - chmod 777 rage*.bin
    - ./rage*.bin
    - force stop terminal, restart terminal
    and then continued removing root "remnants".

    After the reboot, i then i re-applied the rooting procedure and it works now.

    Also, pc747, i noticed after looking at Eousphoros guide and yours, you are missing a step to make sure USB debugging is enabled. I think most will figure it out themselves, but it might save some questions later.

    Thanks!

    That sure looks like a lot of work. Why not do it the easy way?

    Which easy way? the 1 click roots? The XDA easier 1-2-3 root one here wasn't working for me last night, it kept failing.

    I couldn't try the one you mentioned because I'm at work and they don't allow us admin rights to install anything......

    AND this way i learn stuff!

    Hey guys, when I install the drivers from the sbf link on this thread I keep getting MTP Failed and they keep trying to re-install, I've restarted my computer and phone while plugged in and unplugged to usb, I went to device manager and manually found the driver, tried re-installing them but it keeps happening. Do I HAVE to use this version of drivers to sbf?? Because my old set of drivers worked.

    If you open rsdlite and it recognizes your phone then you are fine, but if it does not them you have the wrong drivers.

    This was tried by a member (Lithoss) and has worked for him so I am going to post the method.

    1) You are going to need to unroot, we will use the method posted by Eousporos guide to unroot.

    a) open up terminal emulator and input the following commands:

    - cd /tmp
    - cp /sdcard/rage*.bin /tmp/
    - chmod 777 rage*.bin
    - ./rage*.bin
    force stop terminal, restart terminal
    - now you should see a # symbol
    - mount -o rw,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
    - rm /system/app/Superuser.apk
    - rm /system/bin/su
    * rm /system/bin/busybox
    - mount -o ro,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
    - reboot your phone.

    Trying to recover my droid 2 after OTA update, I still have the Superuser Icon but it does not seem to work. I used the 1click root program to try to reroot but its not working. So I attempted to follow these steps above. First when I go into the terminal app (used "terminal emulator" from market), there are 2 $ signs, first command "cd /tmp" works and removes one of the $ signs. seccond command "cp /sdcard/rage*.bin /tmp/" returns "cp /sdcard/rage*.bin: No such file or directory"

    Kinda at a loss on what to do next. Any point in the right direction would be very appreaciated.
