    I am running TG-Reloaded 2012-03-25. New root apps are not detecting the root. Existing apps I gave root access in the past still detect the root but not new apps? Is superuser not working right? Am I doing something wrong?

    have you updated your super user binaries?
    I haven't been on reloaded in a long time, but I think it's still in the app drawer. Open it up and hit the menu button, scroll down to the bottom and look for the part to look for updates.

    That worked. Turned out I was running a legacy binary. Thanks!

Fix Superuser (which im sure is the issue)B. install ALL the apps again(not want to do that) ill try to update the binary see what happens any help/advice will be apriciated
    edit:how do you update the binary on CM9 ? i clear cache and data from superuser now TB loads but it asked for permission from SU every time i checked the remember tab but every single time it needs permission the window pops out seems like settings aren't sticking weird should i update superuser? ill try that next

    Had that same problem with superuser. You may want to try downloading SuperSu from Google Play. It works the same as superuser, but with alot less hassle. I believe when you install it, you should uninstall superuser app > use stock system Settings and don't wipe the cache. SuperSU is simplified, and works better for UNOFFICIAL build roms. MIUI is a port of a port, and has it's own issues. Mine is running MIUI 2.4.20 w/mOCK Kernel 1.7.14 & SuperSU Pro v0.96. It's working without FC's or "lost root".
    If you've lost root, then make a manual backup of your sd card in your computer, and then re-flash the rom. MAKE sure you hit factory reset, then wipe cache & dalvik, just to be sure the system is clean. Re-flash the rom after. This should wipe any conflicting files out. I had to do it twice. When it reboots, it should be fully rooted. you may also have to re-download some of your apps from Google Play. My Apps>All should have the master list of everything you've downloaded. Load "fresh installs" for major system oriented apps. Sometimes MIUI will FC an app if it's reinstalled from the sd card, so flash a new version instead. Your phone should run without FC's and keep "full root" from there.
