Default SU (superuser) Binary Update failed...

Hi folks, just been updating from Android Market and the Superuser app had some problems, couldnt complete the binary update...


Im rooted & running Gingervillain 3.1

Had a search on xda and found this thread...

"su binary is not updated" - problem updating - xda-developers


have gone through the process in the above post(thanks to the OP "andQlimax")
SU updated fine after this process (to 3.0.2 I think) and didnt come up with the previous Binary Updater failed error


Just thought Id mention seeing as I couldnt find a thread about it here...

what hboot are you using?
is it a custom one? how much system space do you have left?

I'm having issues as well.
Today my Super User updated itself on my rooted desire. This is the first time that SU has done anything since I rooted my device months ago. Now it's saying "su binary outdated" and tap to update.
When I do, it says current version is 2.3.1-ef. Then it goes through a couple of things successfully the says "Gaining root access.....fail!"
Any ideas what this is and why it won't update?
Software number is: 2.29.405.2 if that matters.

HBOOT - 0.93.0001
System memory free (from Quick system info) 115MB

All Ive done to the phone is root about 8 months ago, partition the memory card (500MB I think) and using Gingervillain, never customised the HBOOT

Dont quote me on this, but from reading a bit about my problem It seems that due to not being s-off, the SU app didnt have the necessary permissions to write the appropriate system files... Maybe wait for someone to confirm its the best thing to do, but you could follow the instructions in the post I linked to above, worked for me! (remember to backup first though!)

In fact having just read the updates list in superuser, I see that there was an update in 3.0 that fixed the very bug I fell foul to... (app saying that the binary updater is outdated when it isnt or something)

going from the instructions in the xda post, uninstall any updates, and flash the 3.0 zip file.

SU then updates correctly from the market.

Am I right in that the new su apk needs an extra 5-600k? If so the question is whether to move to the larger hboot, or live with the market always wanting to update (minor irritation).

Anyone used su elite? I can't see that the extra functionality is useful, but then sometimes it's not obvious until you play.

I think it includes stuff like backup and restore of apps permissions (in beta), root console (beta again), pin input on superuser request, logging options, ghost mode (whatever that is) and some more stuff I haven't looked at. As I say I can't see that being overly useful, but that's why I wondered if anyone had it as there may be something good there that doesn't jump out.

Not sure if you fixed your issue by now, but I had a problem with the Binary Update failing. I finally figure out that I had Superuser blocked from using the internet with Droidwall.

I accidentally upgraded it today, and it worked no problem. There was a more recent update to it that may have reduced the install size (for instance it doesn't force the install of busybox now), so it may update okay for dGB users now. I'm on the 60mb hboot.
