    I just updated my phone with the leaked update and it all went great. then i noticed i didnt have root anymore but still had all the root apps. Well i tried rerooting and it goes through the whole process and says my phone is rooted. but when i open tb pro up it says i dont have access to it cause im not rooted. Also i did the root checker and it shows no root on the phone. Any ideas what i might need to do to get back to rooted?

    I've has some issues after the update as well. Superuser app randomly went missing from the phone. Reinstalled from the market but it just fc'd trying to open it. Rebooted the phone and su was gone again. Reinstalled from market again and all is well so far.

    Not sure of root checker depends on su binary but its worth a look.

    For future reference, if anyone is rooted before the update, use "rootkeeper" in the market. It makes a backup of your root, temporary unroots your phone, then you apply the update, then reroot using the app. Worked flawless for me.

    What is included in the update? any fixes worth talking about?

    Edit: Took the OTA and used the method above, worked flawlessly.
