Default Having root issues has this happened to anyone?

I rooted my RAZR using doom lord method which works amazingly well. Attempted the ics leak and some how bricked my phone deleting a bootstrap file which sent me into boot loop. Downloaded the fast boot files and got back to 173. Got the ics leak installed and working and restored root with voodoo no problem. Everything worked fine until yesterday I updated to su elite and lost root access and restore in voodoo doorkeeper is causing force close and it says device isn't rooted. I tried restore through terminal emulator but access denied. How can I achieve root again running pics leak? Fast boot and start all over?

Why did you update the SU? I guess it was running well before?

I remember there's a root method working for ICS in the forums.


Edit: Maybe you can try this if you have GSM-Razr. I don't know if this will work on CDMA version.

Six axis controller wasn't requesting access so I though it was out dated. I tried the ics root method but it kept failing saying everything already exists....unless their is another method. I unrooted with doom unroot then tried the pics root but also failed

I tried some pics root I found on RAZR forums and it installed everything but rootkeeper said it wasn't rooted and es file explorer couldn't gain access super user isn't requesting permission for any root appps

Try the CASUAL by AdamOutler. It's here, somewhere in XDA.

Here it is:

Flash your razr again. Wipe data/cache and factory reset then root it again.

Thanks
