    Try downloading the latest Superuser app from the android market and also root checker which will tell you if you still have root access. If you still don't have root access try re rooting it again. Hope this helps :)

    Sounds like he is having trouble granting root rights on his phone, due to complications with superuser.apk's new binary.

    check this out:

    I updated to 3.0.1 binary and lost root, HELP!

    First, thanks for the help i appreciate it and for the time being imma noob so all/any info is great!
    SO.. i went to that link and downloaded all that was offered from the first post and went to root my Admire again with no success. Plus, when i go to recovery mode i do not have the option to install from sd. The only options i have when in recovery mode are only apply to sd card update zip, factory reset, wipe cache, test redbend?

    It is possible to have superuser installed and not have root access.

    Re-Run the rooting application. Make sure you follow the instructions exactly. Download the drivers, use the USB cable that came with the phone, etc.
