<---- Right there. Took a google search haha


To update the thread:

I have updated the OP to reflect this new 'root restore' method for our primes. If there's a lot of people in this boat, I can put a batch script together for some automated love...

Enjoy!

Make sure to install supersu. It will tidy up the entire situation for you (newest su versions, everything in the perfect place to help with future OTAs etc)


P.S. It makes me nervous every time putting 'rm' and 'su' in the same line in a shell... so that's why it was my last bit of advice hahaha

That is exactly right. I did regain Su then install the Supersu for the safety in the future.

I have not had any issues with root since installing supersu. I noticed the su -v command shows a supersu branded version, which kinda makes me feel safe knowing the binaries are being completely handled by a program and not dumb fingers a la me lol.

Can you also update the OP with information on what to do to avoid being in the situation one has partial root? As in, what is the proper procedure of updating from ICS to JB so that one retains full root? Even just linking to the thread/post that covers it somewhere else would be very helpful

I'd love an automated script. I don't know enough to fix things if I do it by hand and mess up.

Realistically, it is just a matter of installing SuperSU. I haven't seen anyone with that installed have any issue with retaining root. I will update the OP with this info!

I should have it done by Friday or so... got pretty busy today. Would you be interested in testing it?

As I noted here, Superuser may be ok, too, but it still needs confirmation. Also, Voodoo Rootkeeper backups should be refreshed. But this is simply collating a small number of stories, it would be nice if more people confirmed those setups work.
