    Installed Tranquility ROM this morning. Something weird is going on with my root though. I tried rrebooting into recovery and neither ROM Manager nor Koush's bootstrap would work. I opened terminal emulator and typed 'su' and got a permission denied. I have universalandroot, ran that and was told I HAVE root. Somebody please help.

    Super user is still there. I ended up flashing .sbf, re-rerooting, 2.2 update, etc

    I followed d0nku-san's instructions here:

    Tranquility: A Blurless Droid X is within Reach

    and it worked. Here's what it says:

    adb shell
    $ /system/xbin/su
    # mount -t ext3 -o rw,remount /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
    # cp /system/xbin/su /system/bin/su
    # chmod 4755 /system/bin/su
    # sync
    # mount -t ext3 -o ro,remount /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
    # exit
    $ exit
