    OK... so I successfully rooted my phone tonight. No problems there.

    I successfully installed the Epic Experience v1.1.10 ROM. Everything seems to have installed properly.

    All seems to be well, so I went to install Titanium Backup to restore all of my apps from my stock Epic. The installation went fine. I try to run the app for the first time, and I get the following error: "Sorry, I could not acquire root privileges. This application will *not* work! Please verify that your ROM is rooted and includes BusyBox, and try again".

    So I know that my root included BusyBox, because I was able to install and run it on the stock ROM. But just for kicks, I clicked "Problems?" and downloaded the version it says will work. No difference.

    I have rebooted the phone several times. Makes no difference.

    I have deleted and re-installed Titanium Backup. Makes no difference.

    What am I missing? What else could be the problem?

    FWIW, the guys over at xda-developers were able to point me in the right direction. If you install the Epic Experience ROM, you need to install one of the compatible custom kernals too. I installed the MixedUp kernal, and BAM... it started working like a charm.

    I had the same issue, what I did was rerooted and it worked again.

    The issues with the Super Users permission being lost.
