    Hi I have been rooted for a while, today I decided to flash MIUI 1.9.9 all went well but then I tried installing an app that required root access only to be told I DON'T have it I can't understand why?????

    just because I'm in a wheelchair doesn't mean I'm STEPHEN HAWKINGS!!!

    What app? And do other root apps (such as Ti Backup) still work?

    Open Superuser, click the menu button then 'settingss - there's a toggle switch to turn Root Permissions on and off. Turn it on, and there you go. :)

    Apparently it's meant as a 'security feature', although I fail to see how, considering it just stops programs asking for root... Ah well, I still love the rest of the rom! ;)
