I bought an HTC Incredible a month and a half ago. I had my phone "temporarily" rooted with Z4 Root for about a month no problem. Over the weekend I went into Titanium Backup to unfreeze an app and it says I don't have root privileges. Super User now says it wants to update and then errors out. I power cycled and ran Z4 Root again and it says it worked, but still no Super User. I have read a little here and there on the internet but have not been able to figure out why this happened. I read OTA update may have caused it, but I don't remember receiving any updates and I also noticed Z4 Root is not in Market anymore and pretty much most of the links to it on the web are dead now. Were did it go? Anybody know whats up with this?

Also, I was wondering if doing a factory reset will restore the apps I froze with Titanium Backup? I want to do a restore so I can make a clean backup. I am planning on checking out Unrevoked3.

UNREVOKED Is Your Best Bet, I Used It To ROOT My Girls Phone, & It Was Pretty Effortless!! Although It Took A While, But If You Do Decide To Try It Out, My Advice Is Find Something Else To Do After It Starts.Running... I Almost Stopped It A Few Times Thinking It Was Stuck!! But It's Not!!!

Let It Run!!

Yesterday I used flashtool release/x10flash.bat to install and run z4root.

Worked like a charm on my Xperia x10a.

Peace

Just use unrevoked. It's effortless and just got updated for all phones. It gives you superuser privileges
