Default [Q] Rooted Nexus S doesn't grant me root permissions

Hi,

I've checked the forum, found something relative but didn't help.
I have my Nexus S rooted for about 2years. I have changed a lot of ROMS with no problem ever.
About some months ago I flashed a new kernel so I can read usb flash drives. That didn't work.
But my phone was working right.
Then I realized that I don't have root permissions.
I don't know if that is the problem and if that is indeed the problem I can't find the original kernel so I can make it rooted again.
I have tried flash cwm6.0 and then new superuser.zip all installed fine but no change to my root permissions.

thanks in advance for any help.

Flash your ROM again. No need to wipe data or anything again.

I would wipe system, dalvik and cache, leaving data untouched and reflash ROM and gapps...

I flashed my rom many times before asking here...
I use cm10.2 I don't know if that matters.
