    Hi Please help as I find a lot of information and methods confusing to say the least.
    I have rooted my Desire using unRevoked 3 and assume it has been successful because I have managed to load a couple of 'root only' apps. I have kept the stock froyo rom for the moment. I have installed titanium backup from the market but not sure how it works? I tried launching it and initially it comes up with superuser access request and a countdown timer from 10 I tick allow and remember but it says root access failed, I have gone to check for problems and it downloaded busybox. I now seem to be in an endless loop when I click on allow it just comes up again?

    Last night I managed to get to the backup/restore screen and each application is showing with an exclamation mark next to it, I try running the batch operation and a message is displayed
    'Backup verification not possible'
    Sorry, verifying backups requires Hypershell, which is available in the donate version only.

    Not to be daunted Istarted going to each app seperately, the options are Backup!, Freeze!, Un-install!
    Run app and Wipe data.
    I press backup. the superuser request comes up (remember is ticked) and I then have to press allow multiple times until it back up or it just stays in a countdown loop?

    Sorry if this is long winded but it is driving me nuts!

    In backup batch, you should be picking backup apps and data, not verify.

    It may be worth uninstalling titanium, clear cache on superuser permissions.... settings, apps, manage apps. Then download titanium again

    Thanks for the quick reply danfrance, Still get the message unable to gain root, says it has failed? However after a couple of tries installing busybox I managed to get it started, It's just that the Superuser request screen stays on and keeps counting down from 10 and repeating all the time, It is working because it is showing ever increasing progress in the notifications bar. Is this normal? If it is then it's a very long process.

    Superuser request should only happen once. It is normal that the progress is displayed on the notifications area, and yes it can take a while.

    So you clearest cache on superuser? You may need to clear data too. Something is not right

    Hmm yes. The backup operation stopped at 20%, tried re-starting still getting message Root Access - Failed, Triued the problem psection and re-downloaded busybox. Have attached drocap screen capture (required root?)
    I don't know what is wrong, any ideas?

    Are you sure your other root apps function?
