i forget what i did exactly, but try replacing 'su' and 'superuser.apk' with a newer one..., make sure your updater/update-script is installing su properly

Got that last week. I hate the new superuser. Didn't work the same as the last version. Oh well, I'll just have to deal with it. BOO HOO HOO!

su binary outdated -nexus s
same thing happened to me. I got a notification saying su binary outdated click here to update. I clicked it and it failed to connect. so I just kept clicking retry again and again it worked after about 5 tries.

I tried updating and I get the following message

"cannot update the su binary on phones that have some kind of write proteccion on the system partition like S-on"

Then I installed and ran the "fix" and when trying to fix, it force closes.

I have now deactivated the outdated su binary warning window from popping up but I am still wondering how to fix the problem.
