    Hello, I have been searching for a similar person with this problem, but haven't turned up anything. Here is the scenario:

    Motorola Droid - Original

    1. Rooted 2.1, then
    2. OTA Stock Update to 2.2, then
    3. Seem to have lost root, HOWEVER - I still have the Superuser Permissions ICON.

    I use Barnacle for WiFi Tether - I get a "Permission Denied" error when I try to start the app.

    I also went into the terminal emulator and tried an "su" which also gave a permission denied response. I tried "sudo" and also got permission denied response.

    Others have told me this is common with this progression of events. However...

    How do I now ROOT 2.2 in this scenario?

    Superuser app is just an app, but requires root. You will need to root your phone again same way you did before (or not depending on whether easy root exploit has been fixed in 2.2).
