    I have tried searching the forums in order to resolve the issue. I apologize in advance if I have inadvertently missed the solution.

    My phone was rooted before I used the Kies update. The phone works, but I cannot use any apps that require root access.

    After running the 3e recovery installer in order to allow the update.zip to be used, no error messages are received during the package reinstall. However when I run busy box installer, Titanium backup, or any other or any other program that requires the phone to be rooted I get a message that states phone must be rooted to run the application.

    The Kies installer was downloaded from Samsung on June 12, 2011. The update.zip & 3e recovery were obtained from somewhere on this site.

    Model number: SGH-T959
    Firmware Version: 2.2
    Baseband Version: T959UVKB5
    Kernel Version: 2.6.32.9
    Build Number: FROYO.UVKB5

    Thanks in advance for any help offered.

    try rooting it again using SuperOneClick and after doing that turn off the phone, make a soft reset (take out the battery for 30 seconds) and then turn it back on. that should do the thing
