Blush Did not unroot before update Please help!

I updated my Atrix to 4.1.57 without unrooting. No mods were installed. Only titanium backup. I used superone click to root. Now I'm unable to unroot the phone. What can I do?

Super User is still on the phone, but I can't remove it. When I use Super One Click to remove it, it states "running psneuter."

Theres really no reason to flip about it. Worst case scenario is you have extra apps on your phone which arent being used.

This happened to me before I got the beta update. The update really sucks at everything and I wish I could roll it back but right now I cant.

The benefit of not unrooting before the update is that you can still sideload. I am still able to download the apps I want and connect to the Amazon app store.

As of right now, if you download the update, then you lose the ability to root.

You can do a factory reset, then apply the update if you want. All your apps that you downloaded should still be available when you reconnect to the market, just look under MY Apps.

Factory reset was done. The phone did not revert to the old version. Version remained 4.1.57.

The update must then replace the rom that factory reset uses . Going to wait until a root is available before I update.

Ok, so for all you peeps that was 'rooted' before the update, then just went ahead and updated and now can't get root to work... you will have to SBF to the retail SBF 1.2.6, which, in the link provided, will show you how to do it.. don't grab the 1.5.2, that is a different version, and is NOT the retail version the phone came with... and always remember, if you're rooted, INSTALL Titanium Backup, and do a backup of all your apps so you can just install them after your update, assuming root is back on the device..

[GUIDE] Flash SBF to Motorola Atrix 4G - xda-developers

Now, once you braved the SBF process to regain your stock SBF(before the update), reroot you phone with aRoot, and I repeat, DO NOT do any other mods to your phone..
[SCRIPT] aRoot for Atrix 4G [ root - init.d - sideloading - tethering ] - xda-developers

Once you have done that, follow these steps on how to retain your root, which will require you to adb into your system to rename the 'su' and move it to a different directory so it doesn't get locked out..follow the steps, you'll be fine...
[SCRIPT] Root for 4.1.57 (RELEASED!) (requires 4.1.26 rooted) - xda-developers

If you feel comfy with adb and typing in commands, you can do it this way as recommended by Pirateghost on xda: (this is assuming you have retail SBF and only rooted your Atrix)

Code:
adb shell
su
cp /system/bin/su /osh/sbin/frozenfish
chmod 06755 /osh/sbin/frozenfish

run the update

Code:
adb shell
/osh/sbin/frozenfish
mount -o remount,rw /dev/mmcblk0p12 /system
cp /osh/sbin/frozenfish /system/bin/su
chmod 06755 /system/bin/su
mount -o remount,ro /dev/mmcblk0p12 /system

Rebooted once for good measure. test with titanium backup and running adb shell, su

I found this to be alot easier then using the script...

Hope this helps everyone...

When the new update comes out, we won't know till it happens, but most likely, the root will get plugged again, and will have to find another way to get root on it, it was a constant battle with the Droid X, when they were releaseing updates, but it was always rooted in a matter of days...

Right now, it's best to get root back on your phone, just in case, if you've been rooted before and you use apps that require root, ie. Titanium backup, wi-fi tethering.. I'm only saying this if you think you really need to have root on your phone...

Leaving those 2 apps on your phone should not do anything to your phone...
