    hi all

    i have a rooted droid 1. i have changed roms about 25-30 times with no problems. a few weeks back, using rom manager i installed the stock 2.2 rooted rom {well im pretty sure it was with root}. i still have the super user icon in my apps drawer. BUT... when i try to install a rom, rom manager says "an error occurred while trying to run a priviliged command" it says this when i try to run anything in RM. titanium backup says it could not obtain root privilges. i cant install busybox. when i try to rebbot holding thr x button i get the triangle with a ! in it.. {no menu} did i lose root??? i have the super user icon...

    i had the same problem last week - it took me about 4 reboots to get it working, but it came back. i don't know if this helped me or not, but i kept alternately checking and unchecking "advanced mode" with reboots.
