    OK I like to tinker. It's just my nature to check out the latest updates. I always back up my latest ROMs (including today which is BB v0.6).

    This afternoon, I downloaded the FRG01B that Peter posted today Peter Alfonso and after installing I lost my Superuser permissions. So I have Android Version 2.2 version FRG01B on my phone. I no longer can soft boot as when I try, I get the "exclamation point" error message.

    ROM Manager no longer works nor does Titanium Backup. I do have Terminal Explorer as well as Root Explorer (all my files on my SD card seem to still be there).

    What do you guys think I should do to get Root back? Remember that I am now running 2.2 FRG01B. I bought Easy Root from the Market but they have not emailed me the keys yet as they are probably way behind from their fiasco over the last few days.

    Thanks in Advance, Folks! I thought I was safe since I did a backup but losing Root put a damper on that, lol

    Was it the FRG01B that is now the 'official' from Verizon?

    Can't you boot into recovery with X+Power to restore a backup?

    Actually the last update was supposedly capable of rooting 2.2 also, reports confirmed it too. Unless I'm mistaken, I do believe it's possible.

    Don't be afraid to venture

    It seems like some Bugless Beast users are becoming too dependent on Pete's ROMS. Some fail to realize that the man has a life outside of developing ROMS, not to mention bills to pay. As tparker mentioned in another post, there are plenty of awesome ROMS there worth taking a look at.

    Who knows when v0.5 will release and even if it will be worth the wait. Remember Pete now also develops for Droid X.
