    So i recently rooted my Atrix using getaphixx's tutorial & super1click. I installed 2 apps to take screenshots, which require a root, when i installed them, i was prompted to let superuser grant them permission, which i did. But when i launch the apps & try to screen shot, it states that my phone isn't rooted? So. Whatsup with that? Do i need to re-root or something? :confused:

    i came here for the exact same thing. I installed ShootMe and it says that it "failed starting server.Please check that you have ***ROOT*** access on your device and enable access to the lower level graphics." anyone have any idea on how to fix this? and i rooted my Atrix the exact same way that you did.

    I don't think any of the screenshot apps are working yet. Try installing Titanium Backup or AdFree and see if those work. If they do, they you know root is working.

    I rooted also (droid 3) but when i downloaded titanium backup and opened it; it says my phones not rooted. I also downloaded the app that varifies a phone is rooted, it says that superuser and busybox are installed correctly. Please advise @ lunitunz4040@yahoo.com

    Have you checked to see if SU has any logs of it making an attempt at SU access?

    • opne pc companion or if you dont have just do a google search
    • click on update phone and then click on repair
    • follow the instructioons until finished
    • EXTRACT superoneclick and run it and root your phone again

    this seemed to work for me i had the exact problem so i just put everything to default and done it again from scratch

    i think what caused this problem was when i installed a custome kernal and rom still unsure but:/
