    So I've rooted my Hero, flashed a custom ROM, flashed a custom kernel, and then I downloaded some root-requiring apps (namely setCPU and Wifi Tether). However, whenever I open these apps, they do not ask me for Superuser Permissions!

    For example, when I open setCPU, it says "No root access detected. Are applications allowed access to root? Operating in read-only mode."

    How do I fix this?

    Let's start by making sure you have USB Debugging Enabled.

    Are you still able to boot into Recovery?

    Yes, USB debugging IS enabled. And yes, I CAN boot into recovery mode at any time by holding home + power.

    I am using nfinite's deodexed stock ROM, which comes with Superuser v2.2.2.

    Just out of curiosity, why would having usb debugging matter in this instance? I don't think I've turned on debugging since I actually rooted the phone.

    reinstall superuser permissions 2.2.2. i have had times with darchdroid at least where superuser permissions stopped working properly, and downloading it from xda and reinstalling it resolved the issue.

    There are some root apps I've seen that have required you to have USB Debugging enabled. I have had it on and always leave it on. Have never, ever ran into any problems.

    Hmm, that's news to me, good to know I guess.
