    Hey all, I just installed BB 1.0 and I noticed that I can't su in adb anymore. What gives? I've seen threads about people losing root from the new BB's, but all my root-dependent apps (SetCPU, Wifi Tether, etc) still function. What gives? :confused:

    In adb do you get any message when you type su?

    When you type "adb shell" then "Su" it should just repeat the "su" back.

    I believe the losing root was linked to the live wallpapers (according to most people), but wasn't an issue in 1.0 as he removed them.

    All I have ever seen in adb shell was the generic "su" response. If your apps that need root work, and you have the superuser ninja in your apps list, then you should still have root. The apps would let you know if it was broken as they couldn't connect to do their basic functions.
