    Ive been playing with this all day off and on. I received the update earlier this morning around 3.30. Since then wanted to smash my phone at least twice. For some reason the update wouldn't take even though I was on a stock rom. Just unlocked and rooted. Nothing fancy since I have patiently been waiting for the update I didn't want to complicate my life. Worked through all those issues, so now that I'm updated, I have no root access. Ive seen mentioned that we should just rerun the su.update. I had no problem installing it and everything seems fine until superuser cannot gain root access, which renders cwr useless, so now i feel I'm dead in the water. I figured I couldn't be the only one running into this........

    Please post any suggestions.....
    workarounds......
    etc..........

    Oh no is this the 621 style update that the DX got where it breaks the ability to root? That would surely piss a lot of people off.

    * I use one of the various tool kits. When you took the OTA did it relock the boot loader? You may have to go through all the steps again if you haven't trued already.

    Which su zip are you running?

    This one should work.
