Default My phone won't root, but installs Superuser?

I have a LG Optimus f3 through Virgin mobile. I've gone through and did all of the steps to root my phone using motochopper, after my phone reboots, I go to my app drawer and see superuser, but when i use root checker it says that the phone has no root access, so does BusyBox, SetCPU and other root apps. I've tried uninstalling and re-rooting a couple times and I still get the same thing.. If anyone has any ideas on how to get pass this, I would really appreciate it, cause this is driving me crazy!!
