    Hi everyone,

    I'm on the 3 network UK and updated my phone to 2.3.4 last night. Everything went smoothly but when I tried to load up Titanium Backup it said root access not granted. I still have the superuser app, but it now says the Binary is outdated and whenever I click to update it fails, saying the install path cannot be found.

    Does this mean that by updating the firmware I have lost Root access to my phone, if so should it be a case of just doing the whole changing the kernal via Odin again. Will the kernals I used last time still work with 2.3.4?

    Thanks for any help guys, much appreciated! Jonny

    Whenever you flash new firmware you will lose root so just root again the same way you did before. If the kernel you rooted with first time doesn't match your new firmware it will be best to root with the matching cfroot kernel.
