    I' m using the indulge and i must say great work has been done to this phone by you guys and i appreciate it. and i would like some help in fixing the superuser problem.
    after doing some research i found this out by the same dev of super user.
    "The other reason that updating the binary fails is that your ROM Dev did something silly like putting the su binary in /sbin. I have not found a reason why this would be done, but I’ve seen it many times. The problem with putting su in /sbin is that even though you may be able to modify it at runtime, the changes will not stick over a reboot. This is because /sbin is part of boot.img, which gets unpacked and loaded at boot. The other problem with having the su binary there is that it’s almost always the first entry in the PATH. If you’re unfamiliar with the PATH, it’s a list of places that the system will look for a program, once it finds one it stops looking. Superuser will not try to update su if it’s found to be in /sbin because the change will not persist. The fix for this is not quite so easy as before and you’ll likely have to change ROM, and let the developer of whatever you were using know that they’re doing it wrong."

    i find that strange, all that is needed is to update the binary by moving it out of sbin i think so ill take your word for it then thnx for the help

    samsung/metro (cant remember which one) borked this phone from properly running superuser. the guy you talked to is not familiar with the ins and outs of the indulge for metro. i think that when a completely custom kernel comes out, this problem will go away but until then, dont update su.

    I am talking to DRockstar (he ported our CWM) about this now in IRC. I will update in a few, or maybe he might stop by...
