    I recently installed a Gingerbread leak.


    My apps now tell me I don't have root.

    I have run Unrevoked3 but it tells me it can’t root the phone and asks if the firmware is to new.

    I cant get to my backups through recovery, the phone shows a phone with a red triangle and !.

    Any ideas on how to get my root back?

    The ROM is very snappy but prefer MIUI.

    If you installed the leaked OTA you no longer have root. Did you do that or install a Gingerbread ROM? In other words, what exactly did you install?

    You should have read more carefully. It clearly says in the first paragraph- and I quote- You will also lose root access if you had it before this upgrade.

    You're out of luck until someone comes up with a way to root Gingerbread on an Inc 1. Until then you're stuck. Sorry.

    Your not out of luck if you left S-off if you still have S-off then go to doug piston Inc. Recoveries | doug piston download clockworkmod 3.0.0.8 rename just PB31IMG.ZIP then flash it in hboot like you did the rom. Then download the newest superuser by rom manager then reboot into recovery manually wont work if you try in rom manager then install.(sdcard/clockwordmod/download/downlads.androidsu.com/superuser/ its there) You are now rooted. This is where I got info for this http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1227791

    If that don't work of here How to get back to complete stock from s-off and you can download PB31IMG for the 2.2 stock version then run unrevoked.

    No problem.. before people say no they need to research. Also it was found that the to OTA's are the same besides two line's of code and radio. So it's just another leak, htc pulled do to issue's.

    I did this all yesterday and it worked and I got root access. But when I woke up today and tried to get Titanium Backup it said I didn't have root access, so I downloaded a root checker and it confirmed that I was missing root access. All the root apps I downloaded yesterday (such as wireless tether) still work as if I'm rooted but I can't download any new root apps. I checked and busybox is installed correctly. Any ideas?

    Since you've lost all your apps anyway, why not try re-flashing the leaked OTA again? Not sure what your process was, but I have read a lot of feedback with weird issues if a full wipe wasn't done. Make sure you do a full wipe before re-flash.

    I just received the system update notice for 2.3.4 (HTC Incredible) How can I stop the notifications as I am Rooted and do not want to loose the ability of WIFI Tether? I read some where that you can edit the build.prop under the ro.build.finger.... and change the numeric number just before :user key...
    Does any one know about this? I need to stop the notifications for system update

    I have the same question. VZW just pushed the update this morning and now I'm being continually prompted to install it. I'm running Skyraider and I don't want to lose it! Not sure I'm quite savvy enough to go around editing system files so please dumb down any solutions if possible. Thx.
