    what exactly do you mean by app2sd failed? if app2sd fails the phone will be stuck at sony logo and I've never heard of losing root priviliges only unless you format your phone

    as expected

    you see when you have eaten something you get calories and you have the energy to do work
    but if you ate 10days back and since than your stomach is empty you cannot expect yourself to be active and fit
