    Similar question.

    I did what evile84 was going to do. I was already rooted and I ran ROTA893 over my rooted phone. Minus the reset.

    I checked mount_ext3.sh

    and it only added

    chmod 4755 /system/bin/su

    but other methods say it needs to add all three lines. Can anyone on 902 confirm what the last line on their mount_ext3.sh file is? (located /system/bin/)

    chmod 4755 /system/bin/su
    chmod 4755 /system/xbin/su
    chmod 4755 /system/app/Superuser.apk

    You shouldn't have to factory reset...

    I was on stock rooted .893 (I was forever rooted via the below method). After the .902 update I still have root. Hope this helps.


    RootExplorer Method

    go to /system/bin/
    open in text editor - mount_ext3.sh
    add the following lines to the very bottom

    chmod 4755 /system/bin/su
    chmod 4755 /system/xbin/su
    chmod 755 /system/app/Superuser.apk

    I used the ROTA893 and mine says: chmod 4755 /system/bin/su is the only line it added.

    I flashed back to 893 from 901, ran ROTA893 then took 902 OTA and have root.

    Mine also was rooted with rota893 and my root also persisted through the update.

    @op you and I are in the same situation so we'll know soon.

    I used the same method (1-click exploit from P3droid) as you did to root my 893. Then I added the 3 lines of code to forever root. My update went smoothly and I'm rooted. I'm lovin' it.

    Shouldn't it be 4755 not 755 for the last line of code?

    Here I have found quick way to resolve this issue. 1. Plug usb from phone to computer, find exactly where you rooted your phone copy it all to computer. 2. Get rid of root on your phone and update your phone. 3. Then plug usb back in, then get your copy file, and transfer it back to your phone. Your phone is now rooted =D
