    Good day, my Samsung Admire via MetroPCS with Android GB v 2.3.6 will not stay rooted. CWMR v installed and Admire-2.3.6-Root.zip on SD card. I boot into CWMR and select install zip from SD card and then once completed, I reboot. Then I verify root with Root Checker Basic, results are ok. Then I proceed to use root uninstaller to remove bloatware, and recieve an error message. Go back to re-verify root and results are negative for root. Please help.

    Hello and welcome to the forums. :)

    I've placed your question in the Admire All Things Root area for you. ;)

    Well I've known some apps to unroot 2.3.6. I don't know any way around it unless you flash a pre-rooted 2.3.6 rom.

    The only thing that I did was update it from 2.3.4 to 2.3.6. It came from Metro PCS with v2.3.4 , while my wife's had v2.3.6 already installed. Maybe I should try and revert to the previous version?

    Or you can just restore a 2.3.6 rooted backup , saves you the time and problems, btw 2.3.6 has major improvements over 2.3.4. Still your choice though.

    Like it was said before... Stock is know to get unrooted by certain apps.
    Try some roms out...

    Killahbean, The new stock++, OpenAndroid, and Android World Order
    Are great roms to start off with... They are all 2.3.6 based and quite stable...
