    Hey all got something unusual happening here...

    when i did my rooting i got su to work fine

    now for some reason after flash bb 7.8 and restoring my backups using mybackup pro i am not able to su in terminal anymore

    when i go into terminal and type su i get "Permission denied"

    I can confirm my superuser permission is still there and does open showing files and I have also reinstalled terminal emulator


    Any help is greatly appreciated

    From reading posts on Alldroid and from my on personal experience here is what fixed all my problems with apps and root permissions:

    1. Use update.zip method to install bb7.6.
    2. In Terminal Emulator type in the following:

    SU
    chmod 755 /system/xbin/busybox
    Reboot

    3. Open, one at a time, every program that needs root; metamorph, setcpu, etc.
    4. Use update.zip to install BB7.8
    5. Repeat steps 1-3.
    6. If Wifi Tethering doesn't work, download the latest version at [FONT=&quot]http://code.google.com/p/android-wifi-tether/downloads/list
    [/FONT]

    and install it after uninstalling whatever version you had.


    All should be well after that. (unless I oops again and left something out :) )

    This worked for me. YMMV

    ya I know SU isnt working at all almost like this broke root for apps but not for the built in apps such as setcpu and wirelesstether

    hoping there is a big fix coming soon in this 8.0
