    I rooted my phone, tested it with root checker & it passed.

    I tried to open Titanium & it "couldn't acquire root access"?

    any ideas?

    What phone do you have? What process did you use to root?

    Did you click the "problems" button in titanium? Have you tried any other root only apps?

    Titanium Backup just displays "Asking for root rights..." & the circle at the top just keeps spinning.

    At one point weeks ago it worked, I was cleaning the dalvik cache

    I tried Andromizer & it does nothing.

    Last resort would be to reset to factory (hard reset) & go from there.....

    Trying to avoid the nuclear option but it's always on the table, lol

    if this were to happen in the future I'd like to know if a file is corrupting - if anyone else has experienced this (from search it shows this to be the case- but no real solutions) & what happened to cause it & how they fixed it

    Have you tried clearing the cache/data on the Super User app? It has worked for me in similar situations in the past.

    Also worth checking to see if USB Debugging is enabled, I know TB can play funny if that's not enabled.

    Thanks for the help so far

    debugging is enabled
    it's simply not rooted anymore it looks like??
    I tried it again yesterday & reverted to the default carrier's wallpaper

    edit: I went into SU & couldn't find anywhere to clear the cache?

    see all my screen shots once I add them....

    It's not actually in SU Settings, it's normally done under the standard phone settings.

    Settings -> Apps -> All -> Super User -> Clear Cache/Data

    ok, I'm not rooted anymore & am stumped as to how but here's the proof in the pudding I think:
    so time to start over.

    I'm befuddled because yesterday is when I tried to root again to download a helper file so I could make a gps switch via the app Macrodroid

    I was confused why the helper file would not DL, the developer told me it's because I wasn't rooted. W/O root scripts & helper files can't be DL'd.
    That's when I tried to root again & the carrier wallpaper appeared AND the helper file DL'd............

    Alright, I think I know what your issue is. The problem is that you made a very common mistake when rooting the Hydro/Rise. There is a specific version of su/superuser that works, and it looks like you used the latest version of the rooting script.

    Easy Fix:
    Open Superuser, set grant root access to allow, prompting does not work, will refuse root every time because of it.

    Not-So-Easy Fix:
    You need to remove superuser and SuperSU. Having both on your phone anyway is a good way to ruin your root access.
    After removing them, you need to re-root with the correct rooting script.

    Wow, easy method worked like a charm!!
    Makes sense why it was just waiting spinning, it was stuck at the prompt.
    Thanks a ton!

    cooldudezach you are a cooldude, I'll vouch to that, lol

    Thank you to all who helped me avoid the nuclear option ;)
