    Well I finally screwed around with my phone untill I messed it up. I rooted yesterday with Visionary. No problem then deodexed no problem. Well I have evidently rebooted and wiped the usr data and done a factory reset. However it says I'm still rooted. It seems like I'm half rooted. How do I get this baby back to fully rooted.

    Wow. SBF 2.2 download will take over an hour with high speed cable. Does that seem right. Is the file that large?

    Why would he need to do a full sbf. Its unnecessary if all you did was a factory reset. Go into the market and download busybox and superuser. Install them both and you will have full root functionality again. Or if you had everything backed up with titanium just install them through titanium.

    No problem.

    @bankswood- when you go into TB did you hit problems then install busybox? This will install the current version for you.

    Well i apologize I'm a little confused. All of my apps are restored. I guess I will need to rebuild things like my email accounts, etc. They are wiped out.

    Well yes unless you have created a backup through rom manager or clockwork mod recovery. In that case restoring your data is simple. You will have to reboot into recovery then navigate to restore/backup. Go into that and select advanced restore, then select restore data only from the most current backup. Whala your back to your good ol phone

    CharlesBeebe you are the man. I am back to normal. I was able to restore data and reboot. Just a few tweakes and I'll be good as new. Can't tell you how much I appreciate it. BTW I am still downloading the SBF 2.2 and leaving it on my computer. If I ever want to unroot and start over I will need to flash, right?

    That's correct. The 2.2 sbf is something nice to have on hand if you do want to start fresh. No problem man. Just hit the thanks button :)

    No you keep it on your computer ....there is no need to have it on your phone and if you did it would do no good anyhow since it runs with rsd lite from your computer

    RSD lite is just the program that will re-flash the stock version of android to your device. It is what they use at verizon if they are having issues with android phones, ect. Just an easy way to fix/reset/wipe your phone if need be.
