    I rooted my phone on 2.1 and didn't unroot before updating to the official 2.2. Now it seems that it is unrooted but the SU app is still there. I tried a factory reset but to no avail. I tried to root it again with unrevoked but its getting stuck at 'Waiting for root..(safe to restart if this doesnt work)'. I had rooted my 2.1 using unrevoked only a week back. Any advice on how I can root it again would be helpful. At the moment its working smoothly but i would prefer to root it.

    you shouldnt accept ota updates when rooted, it breaks things as you can see.
    If i was you I would find out what SW version you are on.
    find the corresponding RUU from here Shipped ROMs

    flash it

    start again

    Did you use unrevoked older version? If so it doesn't work on 2.2. You'd have to download the latest version.

    No 2.29 is the highest generic build

    is that branded?
    which network are you with?

    EDIT: seems you are on a new arabic rom
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=9597525#post9597525

    also seems theyve changed something, maybe theyve patched the backdoors for adb
    go to hboot and give us the hboot version numbers

    EDIT2: seems that user doesnt know how to use ADB/fastboot as it says device not found when using the downgrader script

    You may just have to wait then.

    Unless teppic74's downgrade tool on xda works

    coolio, your hboot should be ok then. pvt3 is a common hardware build of desire

    bascally you were running an ARA build of OS that pushed an update, this update is brand new and the last leaked version of OS is very old for ARA and will not be compatible if your device is SLCD.
    the best you can do is get all the hboot, fastboot, adb drivers installed correctly
    use teppics downgrader to take it to an earlier slcd compatible stock rom then root it and flash what ever rom you want via recovery.
    dont use ota updates on rooted devices. disable the checking in options

    hi guys,

    I think I'm facing the same issue as km009. I had rooted my 2.1 unbranded Desire using Unrevoked and I went in for the 2.2 OTA..it is the same arabic ROM as km009

    Software Information:
    Android version : 2.2
    Baseband version : 32.49.00.32U_5.11.05.27
    Kernel version : 2.6.32.15-gd96f2c0 htc-kernel and18-2 #1
    Build number : 2.32.415.3 CL283905 release-keys
    Software number 2.32.415.3
    Browser version : Webkit 3.1

    except that the HBOOT is different

    BRAVO PVT4 SHIP S-ON
    HBOOT - 0.93.001
    MICROP-051d
    TOUCH PANEL - SYNW0101
    RADIO - 5.11.05.27

    Now its unrooted and I tried rooting it using Unrevoked 3.22, but my phone is not detected. I still have the SuperUser app on my phone. Everything looks the same except that while running Titanium Backup, it showed that it doesn't have superuser permission anymore.

    Any thoughts on what I can do to root my phone again?

    Applying an OTA update on a rooted phone won't remove the superuser app, as it doesn't wipe anything, but it will remove root access.

    thanks teppic74, any idea how i can get root access back again? I did not know that an OTA would remove the access.

    In which case you need to do a lot more reading as opposed to just rooting without knowing the consequences...rooting should just be a case of using unrEVOked again

    Probably due to accepting an OTA, screwing with everything.

    I'd recommend flashing with an RUU back to stock (completely) and starting again from scratch.

    You may need to downgrade though, if you're 2.32


    Eddy?

    ;)

    The thing is, we don't know the full extent of what the OTA has done.

    It may be alright (although no idea when next unrevoked will be).

    If you downgrade and flash to stock, then re-root, you can then apply any backups you had previously...

    Assuming you had backups?

    Yes, flashing an RUU back to a genuine factory condition is the best idea. If unrevoked still won't work then, you'll have to downgrade.

    I was unable to backup my ROM using ROM manager. It kept giving me an error message (an android screen with an exclamation mark). So I guess this means I'll have to wait for unrEVOked to come up with something. I don't think anything has gone wrong after the OTA. All seems to work fine. Any way I can verify this?
