    My understanding was that that rom had SU access. BUt since i updated from 2.0.1 rooted to 2.1 rev.0.041 all my rooted apps dont work. what gives? did i mess something up in installation?

    Strange, yesterday I had upgraded from 2.0.1 with no problems for SU. Try reinstalling the 2.1 rom if you are unable to open the SU app by itself. After I had installed 2. I had to open SU one time to set the initial permissions.

    ok so i searched around and learned about adb and using windos CMD. i was able to connect to my droid using that and discover that it is rooted. i can give commands but for some reason all my apps that require rooting dont work. So i have root access through CMD but my root required apps dont seem to be able to work. When i had SU on 2.0.1 i would run the app and a pop up would come up asking me if i would allow access. Now all i get are those same apps force closings...Odd idk i give up. anyone else have any ideas?

    I have the same deal with a few of the root apps that I use, such as rootexplorer. I think that some of these developers haven't had time to update for this rom just yet and I am sure if we give them a little time they will get it done.

    Update for Jetnoir, they got rootexplorer fixed. They are starting to catch up with apps to work with 2.1

    No SU

    I installed 2.1 on my droid last night and had some problems...at first it looked nice and i was so excited...it installed some of my paid apps and a couple free ones by itself. my contacts were there. But all the apps i had on 2.0.1 were in the download section of the market. I had to install them all one by one...whenever i installed SUFBS i checked the terminal and typed "su" and it said somethin like permission denied or somethin along those lines. after i installed all those apps back on my device, it was incredibly slow and forced closed every 10 seconds!! it would force close just by swiping thru those extra screens and just by arranging my icons and widgets. and 2 of those live wallpapers, the weird lookin clock and the nexus network one, wont even display! i dont even know what they really look like. but anyways i did a factory data reset and it works good now...im not installing all those apps yet...not until there's confirmation of 2.1 support...:motdroidhoriz:
