As for direct dial, mine it's still working, so I'm not sure what the problem would be there. Did you freeze or uninstall any stock apps after rooting?
I saw that thread when I was searching for a solution. Smart Alert was working when I first rooted the phone but stopped sometime later. I'm debating odining back to stock and re-rooting to see that restores functionality. What a PITA. I haven't uninstalled anything yet and the only things I've frozen are some Amazon stuff, audible, cloud, Isis, Knox notification manager, SDM 1.0, security policy updates, and VZ navigator.
I hope someone finds a solution because I really like smart alert.
