    That's odd... but you should be able to just use the original update.zip you used to get root (back before you even had a custom recovery) to regain root.

    If it's just your root access for apps is being denied try and update the busybox. People have problems with that sometimes.

    Can't use dmupdater because it just wants me to update to the new version. I tryed to install a nandroid from clockwork recovery and it says mismatch. I guess I'm ****ed

    This is exactly why Sholes/DroidMod is a stupid idea. I wouldn't know what to do either if I had a magical program do everything for me and then not tell me how to fix it.

    He needs to use the update.zip for root. Cause I'd say to try and fix busybox's permissions but to chmod 755 /system/xbin/busybox he needs root first! :(
