    My Motorola Droid was working great with root access for several months. Today As I was using it I went to check something in ROM MANAGER and it told me I did not have Root Access.

    I originally used GingerBreak 1.2 to root it so I tried to use it again. No Go!!

    Could it be because I am using ClockworkMod 2.5.0.1 recovery? (Which I can't change because I don't have "Root Access")

    Any help would be VERY appreciated.

    BTW: I'm using CyanogenMod 7-08172011-NIGHTLY with ADW 1.3.3.1 Launcher.

    TIA,

    Curt

    Grab Root Checker from the market just to be sure root is really gone. Do you still have SuperUser in your app drawer?

    I've had something similar happen. A reboot fixed my issues, although, I was still able to access my recovery.

    Reboot didn't woik!

    Root Check tells me this:

    Root Access is not properly configured or was not granted

    Superuser.apk - com.noshufou.android.su - version 2.3.6.3 is installed.

    The adb binary is set to default shell user access as root.

    Standard su binary location: ls -l /system/bin/su:

    ls: /system/bin/su: No such file or directory

    Standard su binary location: ls -l /system/xbin/su:

    ls: /system/xbin/su: no such file or directory

    Alternate su binary location: ls /sbin/su: permission denied

    SU binary not found or not operating properly

    HELP!!

    Curt.

    Problem solved.

    I booted into recovery and went to NANDROID.

    I went to restore and restored my latest backup (done with Rom Manager) using basic restore, not advanced.

    After it restored and I booted I had Root Access.

    Thanks for the lead to "Root Check", I'm sure I'll use it other times.

    Curt.
