[Boost Mobile] SU Binary Updater remount error

    The su binary update goes through fine accept for one part:

    Remounting /system as ro... fail!
    Failed to remount the system as read-only,
    please reboot to finish the update

    I have only run into an issue with it when a third party add-on for Tasker needed root and it attempted to remount the system, it crashed.
    So to fix the problem, I tried doing a 100% clean restore using the updater tool, re-rooted and tried again... same problem. Is it just my phone? The binary is updated and super user access for apps works fine (accept as mentioned above), but does anyone else have this problem or know of a fix?

    You cannot update the Superuser binary, it breaks things. If you have root, don't touch it!

    If you still want it ...just update the superuser app and uninstall the update via market the just update the binary

    But you can disable the binary notification in super user app

    That error at the end is normal, once superuser mounts your card as R/W, after updating it for whatever reason cannot mount it back as R/O, the binaries STILL get updated, and all you need to do is reboot your phone, run it again, and it will tell you that your binaries are current. And I've always had the most current binaries/never had a problem with my root. Idk why it could cause for others, maybe different app's, but in general, that error is not a problem, it still updates, it just doesnt remount the way it was untill you reboot the phone.

    I did it and it didn't break anything, well at first it did, but easy fix (even for noobs) once I figured it out.
