    I got tired of waiting for the OTA update to 4.0.4 so I rooted and flashed the leak. Right away I noticed it was not as smooth as 4.0.2. Does anyone else have this issue?

    Also Titanium Backup can not obtain root privilege.

    What network are you on? Verizon? I can happily move this post to the proper "All Things Root" section where you will likely get help faster :)

    So I think I figured out the Titanium Backup thing. I flashed a stock rom leak so I guess I need to root again. How would I do that? I rooted with Wug's toolkit.

    wugs should work on anything, and if it doesnt, it's easy to reobtain root

    just move the su to the sd card, by connecting it to your pc, flash the clockwork recovery in it, and then just install the su.zip and your rooted :)

    Once you've re-established root, the best thing I can suggest to you is try different ROMs and see which ones you like. I have tried AOKP, BAMF and LiquidSmooth and they're all great, but my phone likes Liquid the best. Just do a nandroid back up in ClockWorkMod each time and it's easy to roll back to a previous version.
