    I installed BB 7.7 and everything went fine. Now when I try to run Root Explorer or SetCPU it tells me it can't access root. But in terminal emulator, if I type "su" it gives me the # just fine. I don't really have a nandroid backup that gets me anywhere. What can I do?

    I had a similar issue with the 2.1 BB. Try going back to nandroid recovery menu, and reboot from there - that did the trick for me.

    I still don't know why the SU permissions were messed up in the first place, but I hope this helps you!

    What exactly does it say? Is it just asking for permissions again? When you install a rom it will ask for all the permissions again like when you first downloaded the app.

    Didn't work. I booted into recovery and then rebooted without doing anything there and no luck. Thanks though.

    It doesn't even ask for permissions, SetCPU has a message inquiring if apps have access to root. And Root Explorer just says that I need to restart it. But su works so I dunno.
