Angry DANGIT! factory reset/reroot with poot

ok, so i did a factory reset to try to clear the corrupted audio files, and it seems to have worked, BUT, i cannot regain root. i tried to reroot with poot, and poot tells me its rooted, but root-checker does not. and busybox will not install (originally said superuser by mistake), i have tried to reset the phone several times. idk wtf i did, hope i didnt fubar my phone.

Default

ok! i think i got it! i HAD, as in i freaking must have super user installed for the root to run. damn, if i would have thought about it, i remember seeing that somewhere. but still root checker doesn't show me anything about it being rooted "sorry your phone isnt..blablahblah" but i ill take busy box reinstalling as its rooted just fine.

yes, so as a future reference. after a factory reset on a rooted phone, you have to reinstall superuser.

cheers
