    I have searched the forums and found nothing for the Droid 3. Here is what I get:
    su binary outdated.
    New version of su binary found. Update now?

    Downloading manifest... okay
    parsing manifest... okay
    latest version= 3.0.3.2
    Checking installed version= 2.3.1-ef
    clicked update
    Fixing database... okay
    Checking for busybox... okay
    checking current install path... /system/xbin/su
    Downloading new binary... okay
    Checking md5sum... okay
    Gaining root access... okay
    Remounting /system as rw... okay
    Copying su to /system... fail

    It then asks if i want to retry. Repeats steps and the result is the same.
    I found a suggestion that says to remove the su from the /system/bin folder and then update. tried it but after i removed the file it would not recognize that i needed to update it.
    Any suddestions would be great.
    Thanks

    I have tried this as well. It doesn't detect anything to fix. Try force fixing it and comes back the same.

    Updated busy box by going to play store and look up busy box installer by Stephen... Installer the latest version and see if that helps...

    under su setting under prompt set it to ask..then try to update again..some times if you set it to auto allow the update fails
    and yes allways a good thing to keep your busybox updated

    Solution for Incredible 2?

    Hey everyone--I'm having the exact same problem, except with my Incredible 2 (got 99% through the root, but SuperUser/SuperSU is having trouble gaining root access. I tried creating a new thread for it, but no luck.

    I tried installing the BusyBox app, but it won't even load, saying "There was a problem opening a shell with root access. This is either being caused by superuser/supersu or by a device that is inproperly rooted" when I try.

    It suggested downloading RootChecker to see if I'm actually rooted, and I did that as well, but it won't load either.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks.
