    If you can I would return it to stock. What happened to it?

    the top half ended up in water, and now its malfunctioning
    the screen wont respond till 10mins later, and all of the gestures
    would go all out at once. I can't return it to stock cause the
    debug isn't on :p

    do you have recovery? can you boot into it? put a stock rooted rom (this is as close to stock that you can get EASILY http://androidforums.com/esteem-all-things-root/481810-rom-ms910-ld-lg-3-5-zvd-stock-mod.html) on your sd card and flash. then what i would do is pull while in recovery after your first boot (i think you can still pull while in recovery) superuser.apk from /system/apps/ with (http://androidforums.com/esteem-all-things-root/517688-adb-android-commander.html

    These are all good responses, but i think i figured it out
    I went into my very first backup and i pulled the whole thing out
    deleted the superuser.apk and all of the other apks including the root ones
    and ill try reflashing my old backup, im sure that way, superuser.apk wont be
    in the flashing process :D

    this will probally fail seeing as you deleted files changing the md5 checksum. there was a post over at xda i came across to force flashing with an incorrect md5 let me see if i can dig it up.

    check this out. it may help you. if it does bootloop for whatever reason (it may) keep the rom from above on your sd card.

    alternatively you could just open the rom above with 7zip and navigate to system/apps/ and delete superuser.apk then save and flash. this might be easier and safer.
