    I'm gonna need some help guys. So I was messin around with my phone being bored and went into the superuser permissions app. I was looking at all the entries that were in there and I know that it's just a list of permissions you've allowed on your phone. Anyway I wanted to see what would happen if i clicked on one of them. Well it cleared it from the list and I just clicked on all of them so when I'm in the SU app there is nothing there. Now when I try and get into one of my apps that require permission it tells me it requires root and doesn't have permission. So it looks like I blocked all permissions for my rooted apps. The question is how do I get it back??....I'm sure I can just reflash a nandroid backup I have but I was wondering if there is any other way??????

    Did you try and reboot? I learned early on not to touch this app but I hate the way it's designed...shouldn't clear the entries without a prompt of some sort. I did a google search for you but didn't return anything good after about 10 minutes of looking...I'd love to know the answer if anyone has experienced/solved this issue.

    A reboot may help. I think that you cleared the permission from the SU app, but the app requesting root still was running, so all of a sudden it lost permission.

    If you reboot the phone OR kill the app, the next time it runs, it should reask for SU permission.

    Thanks for the reply UBR. Yea I searched for bout an hour and i'm surprised this didnt show up. Anyway I did try and reboot, even tried uninstalling the root required apps and reinstalling. Still nothing. Didn't even ask me to allow permissions again. So at that point I went into full pucker mode and just did a nandroid restore and everything is running fine again. And yea there should definitely be a prompt of some sort. Even though technically still rooted it denies access to everything.
