SU Binary Update Fail Fix

    I'm not sure if it's a problem for all Exhibit II users, but soon after I rooted I started getting notices "SU Binary outdated". When I ran the update in Superuser I would get a message "md5 fail" every time. I updated Superuser twice since then and still had the "md5 Fail" message. Anyway I found another app on the market "Busybox Installer" by Stephen Erikson. After I ran it and used it to update my Busybox, I decided to see if it fixed the problem and it did. I then went to my Wife's Exhibit II because it had the same problem. I fixed it there too. I have seen many other posts related to the same issue, not sure if this will help there as well. But I thought I'd share this info.

    I saw so many discussions over this, but knew none really applied exactly to my situation - until you posted. THX!!!

    Worked for me. I had to use the program to uninstall and reinstall BusyBox for it to update properly. Kept failing if I just tried to install.

    Hi everyone, I ran into another problem. OK I have root accessnow,yayyyyyyy! I wanted right away to see if I could put internet on another device(my old Galaxy prevail) Now wireless hotspot turns on and says I can share internet but my galaxy is not finding it. Now I had my neighbor come by and turn her hotspot on her phone and my galaxy connected to her phone. Why isn'tmy warp not being recognized? Superuser says I have access.

    I'm also getting "su binary update" message using super user, I get failed every time soI read a forum bout installing the busy box installer from the market n which I did. its suppose to fix the update problem but I don't think it did cause I have no idea if this binary update is a part of why it won't let any devices find my warps WiFi connection. Oh her phone let's my prevail use her hotspot. . I use Google Wi-Fi for root users and it says tethering is running, Why won't my warp be recognized? And I still cannot update my su binary to the new version.. help plz?

    Sorry my fix didn't help. I posted the fix here (the Exhibit II root forum) because it worked on my Exhibit II. I have heard it has worked for other phones, but I have no idea about your phone in particular. You might want to try out a tethering app from the market and see if that helps with your tethering problem, sometimes they help.

    One more fix... If you get the MD5 sum fail, I fixed it using Super SU, avaliable in Play Store. One thing though it not only updates the Binary but replaces it. It worked for me and my ex's Exhibit. Theres one thing though... Since it replaces the SU you have to disable the old SU app. follow the instructions and you'll be surprised at how neat the interface is, the choices are trippled..
