    You may not actually have root, the icon can sometimes show up without root actually happening properly. What happens when you run the SU App?

    try out the droidmod updater thing.. free from their website and gets you a pretty awesome ROM automatically... you can switch around ROMs from there with little hassle

    DroidMod - Everything Droid doesn't, DroidMod does.

    i'm not supporting them over anyone else, it's just the easiest root n' rom technique

    i was at 2.1 but downgraded to 2.0.1
    i just did a factory reset
    and used "http://androidforums.com/all-things-root-droid/25252-how-root-your-droid-non-linux-non-geeks.html" to get rooted
    it worked i think. now im trying to find out how to do busybox

    edit - i guess i do have su because i just did busybox with "http://androidforums.com/all-things-root-droid/45764-guide-s-everything-root-related.html"

    i think my su is broken so im going to revert all the way back to 2.0.1 stock
    obtain root again with rootyourdroid.info
    then use rom manager to flash clockwork
    do a backup then install cm

    or should i flash with spr then flash to clockwork?

    does this sound good and/or right?
    thanks
