So today was fun, after seeing mixed reports of people downloading and successfully installing the Verizon update, I tried.

It worked, then my phone went into a reboot/recovery loop, then just stopped loading. I did a factory wipe restore in the recovery menu, then did a factory data reset in the setting menu.

Reloaded all my crap back on, and now here comes the issue. Superuser still shows in the menu, but when i try to remove the files via the ABD commands, I can't, I get permission denied.

I can't get Root Explorer to work because I've obviously not rooted anymore.

So what are my options, because my phone isn't rooted, even though the root files are still in place and I can't update and/or modify those.

Thanks in advance.

Im gonna take a stab at this because im still a n00b myself on this android stuff, but i had similar problem with wireless tether.

When you updated it removed root access, but not any programs(hence you have no permissions, but still su program), so what your probably gonna have to do re-root the same way you did earlier, I actually had to re-root twice in order to get root access, because the first time it hung. Now after you get root access, you should be able to remove root through the command.

Hope this helps

Have you tried just deleting the files from your memory card? I unrooted once and still had the SU app showing in my app drawer. I deleted it from memory card and it dissappeared. I think it was like 4 or 5 files just delete them and reroot.

FIXED!

So I had previously tried to re-apply the root with no success, but for whatever reason, decided to do it one more time, and it worked!

Follow this again if you did it this way before.

Ok, I did this and it fixed EVERYTHING! I had tried a couple of times to re-do the "one click" method. Nothing worked... Now I have FULL root with FULL permissions!

THANK YOU!!

Edit: BTW, this is AFTER I did the FULL vzw update!
