Default Upgraded to 2.3.6 and lost root

I upgraded to 2.3.6 but before I did I ran OTA Rootkeeper. I installed the official OTA update and when the phone came back up and I went back to restore root I get a message that root was restored but the device root and root permission granted is still unchecked. Am I doing something wrong?

Try a root app (like quick boot) and see if it works.

Did you select temp unroot with backup or just backup?

Yea, I have had that happen on several occasions. The only way I have found the root keeper to consistently work is to do a temp unroot with backup. I am afraid that your only way back to root is too fast boot.

I didn't temp unroot before the upgrade and OTA got my root back from backup just fine.

Already froze the additional bloatware.

Just to clarify, I patched while rooted. OTA backed up my root access. After patch I was unrooted. OTA restored root perfectly.

Has anyone tried doomlords root method with this rom?

It seemed to work just fine for the original rom on this phone as well as the last update.

I'm getting ready to try it and was just curious if anyone else had any success with it.
