    I recently discovered that I had lost root when updating to Superuser 2.2.2 ef using ROM Manager. Just a heads up to make sure you create a nandroid backup before you decide to try and update. I needed to restore to get root back.

    Just curious how you got the update? I have the super user that was installed in the how to root your phone in 10 min. Why would updating be necessary?

    you dont actually "lose root" the new SU app doesnt really work. you can flash that zip i posted and it will restore the old SU.

    A restore is overkill. Just boot into recovery and overwrite the "bad" su with the one you previously had working via adb.
