    Hey guys. I've recently flash MIUI & everything was well & working....until *dun dun dun*



    I was attempting to install & run the supercharge script. I downloaded the busybox installer like the instructions told me to, but when it was downloading & installing the busybox the busybox installer app force closed (Thanks MIUI...) so now all my permissions & root stuff is screwed up.


    For example: Busybox installer wont even run anymore, it says "root access not detected"

    Root explorer will simply blackscreen then force close.

    Rom manager is unable to fix permissions It says "an error occurred while attempting to run a privileged command"


    I installed Terminal emulator & was able to pass the "su" command & it gave me the "#" sign. I don't know if that is of any relevance. I'm not familiar with linux commands.

    I still have the superuser app icon & it will run.


    Any ideas of how to fix the half-installed, force-closed busybox?







    *EDIT* I downloaded and ran Root check:

    It says "Congratulations! You have root access!
    Superuser.apk - com.noshufou.android.su - is NOT installed!
    The application Superuser is rcommended as it provides basic security and is available for free in the Android Market

    Root user id: uid=0(root)

    Root group id:
    gid=0(root)"




    But the busybox check part says:

    "Installed Busybox Version:
    Busybox is not sharing its version information

    Busybox supports the following applets:
    Busybox is not sharing its supported applets"


    I also downloaded the other busybox installer by stericson & it will not work either, it says:

    "No Remount
    Failure! /system/xbin/ could not be remounted as RW!

    This is FATAL and we cannot recover!

    We have died.

    Send a log to stericdroid@gmail.com"


    Also, ROM manager will not boot into recovery mode....well, it does but it doesn't. The 2nd init version wont load, when I try it just boots into the older recovery (green text).

    Ouch!! You may want to wait for someone more learned than I to respond, but Errors, can't restore from a backup, may have to start over. :(

    Older recovery is actually better IMO. Did you try and flash the 2nd init Clockwork with rom manager?

    I'd say starting over is probably your best option. In my experience as a computer technician, if you don't know what the problem is and you've exhausted the basic fixes, oft times, it's far easier to just remove the "program" (root in your case) and start from scratch.

    I'd just SBF it and move on.

    Or wipe data and install MIUI again.

    But would wiping data fix his busybox and root access? It's probably worth a try to avoid starting all the way from scratch though.

    That's why I said wipe data and install the ROM again.
