    Hi All
    I made the changes to my system/bin/mount_ext3sh file but they vanished!
    I was running unl3ashed 1.8 then I fxz back to stock, then made the forever root changes, upgraded my radio to .893 then applied reblurred 2.0 last night.
    Everything went smoothly. After making the forever root changes, I checked to make sure the changes were there and they definitely were!
    This morning I double checked and they were gone!
    My question is can I make the changes to the mount_ext3sh file now or do I have to FXZ and start over.

    TIA

    AL

    If you formatted your /system which everyone should before doing the 2.0 upgrade, then yes you will lose the forever root in the mount_ext3.sh file. You are still rooted though. You can't upgrade to 2.0 without being rooted. You don't have to revert to reapply the forever root changes, you only need to have root.

    I had the same problem and after completing the edit to apply forever root, I had forgotten to change the file permissions back to Read only. I reapplied the changes again and changed back to RO and they have stuck since then. Just my experience.
