I just figured something out. I found a su-backup in /system/usr/we-need-root . I have lost root again since making this guide. My permissions were screwed up on su. I was able to restore root by doing the following:
adb shell: $ cd /system/usr/we-need-root $./su-backup; su (that is a semicolon immediately after the ./su-backup) # mount -o remount,rw /system (do what needs to be done) #exit ...
Required su-backup permissions for manual root restore $ ls -l /system/usr/we-need-root/su-backup -rwsr-sr-x root ...
So you aren't getting a permission denied error? If you navigate to /system/usr/ do you have a we-need-root folder? Use the command 'ls -l /system/usr' (both lowercase Ls) Basically, I am trying to find your su-backup (if you have one) I was able to re-obtain root using this idea.
I have done every step with no errors. However, after rebooting and running Root Checker it states I am improperly rooted. I go to Voodoo and everything is checked except for "Root permission granted". It shows that my device is rooted though. I run SuperUser and it can't update the binary. I can go into ADB and it shows "#", meaning I have root. Where do I go from here????
