Sbf would probably be the easiest way.

Chet I have the exact same problem.... superuser is interfering after i updated with the OTA. SBF is not an option as my wife will kill me for losing alot of data. Im trying to give the command line route a go. I cant get adb shell to start with #, always $. If you find the solution please let us know! Ill be trying too

Here you go Ramen this fixed the problem:

Connect your phone
[FONT=&amp]- open a command (as administrator) window type adb shell
- you should see a $ symbol, (if you see a # sign skip next step) now do the following
- su
- now you should see a # symbol
- mount -o rw,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
- rm /system/app/Superuser.apk
- rm /system/bin/su
- rm /system/bin/busybox
- mount -o ro,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system[/FONT]
- type exit

That should remove the remnants of the previous root then you can use the new MotoOneClickRoot method.

Oh and make sure USB Debugging is checked. My USB connection happened to be on PC Mode actually forgot to check it otherwise i would have set it to charge only or usb only, but it worked so there you go!

Wife is none the wiser and her adds are gone again! Good Luck
