    I rooted my phone using Easy Root and worked fine and great until I did the update for Adobe Flash 10.1. My phone still shows that I have superuser rights (I have the ninja) and it keeps saying it is rooted. However, when I use any of the rooted only apps (i.e. overclock widget, reboot, etc) none of the apps works. They all say that I don't have superuser rights. Any recommendations for a fix for this? If this has already been asked and answered....my apologies, but I wasn't able to find it.

    is there a way to delete the update? Recover back to an earlier date? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I've had this phone for about 6 months now and I thought I was tech savvy enough for it.....I was wrong.

    Try downloading ROM Manager from the Market. Open it and scroll down to the Utilities section and select Fix Permissions. That normally works when you have an app that doesn't recognize that you have Superuser permissions. Hope that helps.

    I have ROM Manager. I tried the fix permissions but it didn't work.

    Download Terminal Emulator from the market for free. Open it up and type in "su" (without quotes). If you get any kind of error, the phone isn't properly rooted.

    Thanks! Looks like it's not properly rooted anymore. Although I do have the superuser permissions icon up it still looks like I'm not rooted anymore. Any recommendations on how to fix it?

    Thanks

    Would a factory wipe or hard reset help? Thanks
