I have busybox, I have su (3.0.3.2), I have a we-need-root voodoo backup, I DO NOT have Superuser.apk in /system/app. I can't push anything (always permission denied). I had partial root on 10.4.2.17 (even though I didn't know it was partial). Any way to get that .apk in there so I can get my root back?

I was ready to try unlocking also, but I can't access the second accept button (the page is cut off and doesn't scroll). I can't go any further with it.

I've been reading for two days, and I think I might be stuck waiting for JB root/unlock unless someone out there has something for me to try.

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
...
su-backup must have permissions as such: (get permissions by typing this into adb shell: ls -l /system/usr/we-need-root ) If you get an error, than this specifically won't work for you.

Code:
Required su-backup permissions for manual root restore
$ ls -l /system/usr/we-need-root/su-backup
-rwsr-sr-x  root  ...
basically, if you can find a su-backup with proper permissions (and cannot restore root with voodoo or supersu), you can manually use that to repair your root access configuration. Maybe this is well known... but to those who don't this could be useful.

--After 3 hours of studying your guide on here, and with a bit of ingenuity (never used commands before) I FINALLY got my Atrix HD on 4.1.1 re-rooted with a voodoo su-backup in storage. Thank you SO MUCH!!!

I am also trying to get my root beck, but also unable to. I have the superuser app installed (can't delete it anyway from my prime) and I do have a we-need-root folder.
I tried following the posts from page six, since I can't get root prompt from adb shell.

But when I reboot the prime, it still says all apps denied root access...

The su in the we-need-root folder has the permissions from the post above me.

Omg...please help!
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????

My answer is late but I joined XDA recently.
I have some hints but want to know it they are needed.

BTW:
To see # prompt DOESN'T mean you have root.
NOT to see # may mean you still have root. (I do however I dont see # running su).
More explanations on request.

I tried the techniques in this thread with less than complete results. Try here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1642694 If you need a recovery, the first video is what you want. If you just want root, there's a video a little further down for that. It worked flawless for me, and it's super simple. Dude just posted a couple days ago that he's keeping an eye out for the 4.2 to drop for our tab, and as soon as it does he'll add a video for that. Hope that helps.
