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: 188.8.131.52 Build Number: FROYO.UVKB5 Thanks in advance for any help offered.
