    i am very new to smart phones, my droid is my first, but im a quick learner and so eager to explore...
    my problem is that i rooted my razr, it was a great success, worked perfect
    i didnt know that an update would unroot and make me have to reset my droid.
    superuser is seperuseless and i cant get it off the phone. i tried to reroot but it didnt take.
    i just want it to be awesome again
    ive been reading rzr forums for the last 3 days and now im superconfused
    im asking for some1 to please explain to me, step by step (and in lamest terms)as to what i need to do to remove superuseless superuser, remove the last update(if that has to be done) and reroot my droid to make it do and be like it was before the stupid update.
    u would turn my frown:( upside down :)
    thank u in advance, whom ever u r going to be:)

    Have you tried going into the market and see if the app is installed? if it says so uninstall. I had the same issue when i unrooted my phone. I couldn't get rid of Super User.

    Sorry for the quick post, had to take care of other business. SmallTownGirl13 seems to have handled my affairs quite well while I was gone! LOL! ;)

    Good luck.

    so i kinda feel like i know u :)
    but all i want to do is root it again and make superuser superactive again...the approximate 2 hour downloads u were so kind to provide me with are really necessary for my simple wishes? or are my wishes not so simple?

    Haha! Well, I try to be helpful to everyone, so I do post a lot. The new Rootkit Matt created is a powerful tool that combines many separate tools into one user interface. It streamlines the process of rooting, UN-bricking, updating, rolling back to earlier versions, and protecting root into a simple menu selection and automates many processes for you. It also steers you away from known issues that the processes can sometimes cause and can ultimately prevent irreparable harm to the phone. You could do what you want with a smaller group of downloads, but the process would be more difficult, riskier, and just a bigger pain in the rump.

    Rootkits are not new, its just time-consuming to create them and they need to be updated as things change so often people simply don't bother to make them. I say take the safe road.

    so i should wait for the toolkit and then root? but what about superuseless? i cant get rid of it? i did clear all the data, but that was the last thing i did to it, with it, whatever...
    will it get in the way of rooting again?

    If you are on 2.3.6 now, you can use the link in my post above to download the new root exploit for 2.3.6 - this would save you from waiting for the utility to download...Once you are rooted, your superuser icon should be again useful...

    I am guilty of reading into...rather than simply reading your initial post. SmallTownGirl13 has clearly done a better job than I of understanding what you want. I misunderstood your OP to mean that you WANTED to roll back to the earlier version and root. I apologize. I sometimes have a problem where I don't RTFQ (Read The Full Question) before interpreting what is being asked. You can (as STG stated) re-root your phone with the new exploit. Might I also suggest that you download Doomlord's Voodoo OTA Rootkeeper from the Market and (hopefully) protect your root from losing it with future updates?

    FYI:
    Superuser is an app but it's not installed like other apps, and so it can be deleted, but with a root-based app explorer. Since it's in the root portion of the phone's storage, you have to be rooted to remove it.

    Clearing data will not delete anything from the apps storage area. What you can do to be sure you're back to stock before going forward is to do a Factory Reset, however it will delete ALL your apps, ALL your personal settings, and essentially the phone will be the way it came out of the box. It's a drastic measure but sometimes its the only way to resolve nagging problems that just won't go away.
