Default [Q] I can't reroot after the OTA Security update

I got the January 7th OTA update. I lost root. I do have Voodoo OTA root keeper, and it said root restored but it didn't check the box. I also have SuperUser but I keep getting the # sign in the status bar to update su bin. When I try to update it gives me an error message. I tried to use a few root dependent apps to test if root was truly gone, and, indeed, it was.

I gave up and decided I should just try to reroot. So I ran Razrblade Utility that I used to root jellybean in the first place, and not even that works. I have safestrap if that means anything. Any ideas?

Here is the dialogue box I get when I try to run Razr Blade

I had the same problem. However after clearing the cache I was able to regain root.

1.Power the device off.
Note Press the Power button then select Power off.
Note If the device doesn't respond to input, press and hold the Volume Up / Down then press and holdPower button. When the device screen goes blank release the Power button while continuing to holdVolume Up / Down, proceed with step 3.
2.Press and hold the Volume Up / Down then press the Power button.
3.When presented with the Boot Mode Selection Menu release all buttons.
4.Press Volume Down to select Recovery then press Volume Up.
5.From the Droid triage screen, simultaneously press Volume Up / Down.
6.Select Clear the Cache Partition then press the Power button.
7.Select reboot system now then press the Power button.

I also disabled all smart actions before starting the razr blade batch file. Don't know that it made any difference. Good luck.
