Well, two days ago I decided to put ICS on my Amaze. Previous to ICS I was Rooted with S-ON, and Unlocked.

I followed the instructions on the Development section to install ICS on my unlocked, S-ON Amaze. However after I installed CWM, and flashed Superuser, Titanium Backup, or any other root app says I don't have root privileges.

From what I understood, once SU was flashed, the device would be rooted.

I used the All In One Kit to put the CWM Recovery, and flash the SU. I did HTC Steps to unlock the phone (which the AIO Kit helped also)

I tried looking for a solution or something before posting, but I couldn't find one in the 80+ pages of the ICS thread in the Development section.

Thanks in advance!

I initially had an issue flashing Superuser-3.0.7-efghi-signed.zip (found here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...40&postcount=4) because I didn't toggle the signature setting in recovery. Perhaps it didn't flash correctly? Make sure it said it was successful at flashing the zip.

I realized that my tool didn't set the SU permissions. I have to fix that. Just flash the SU zip file and it'll be fine.

You sure can. Detailed instructions posted in development section. Basically you need to unlock bootloader through HTC, flash a custom recovery, load up the superuser zip, then flash it in your custom recovery. More details are given in other posts already.

Just going to throw this out there. I flashed superuser after installing ICS to get root. It works for most applications, but one app that it doesn't work with is LuckyPatcher (to get rid of those stupid ads in my other apps). For LuckyPatcher to work, I had to install superSU (can be found from the play store). It seems to be my default root app now.
