Help! False root?
I recently rooted my Epic using this method ( joeykrim-SDX - Permanent Root for Epic (and Verizon Fascinate) - Confirmed ) , but Titanium Backup could not acquire root privileges.
If I go into the ADB Shell and type in su, the shell returns a #, which is the method listed for checking if you have root or not in the above link.
Anybody know what's going on?/How I can fix my root? Thanks.
EDIT: I also have busybox installed using the tool installer included with RyanZA's One Click Lag Fix. The One Click Lag Fix recognizes that I have root (but I still can't run it because I only have 328 of 498MB free space...another problem for another thread. lol)

Re: Help! False root?
Happened to me. You just have to keep trying to get it to work by looking up similar problems in the droid forums (outside of AndroidCentral). Reboot, do everything you can. Eventually, it recognized my phone and it started to work. Make sure you're mounted on the computer too. :-) hope this somewhat helps!

Those roots are NOT made for the Epic.
Use this one from XDA.
One-Click Epic Root with Optomized Kernal
After rooting you need to install SUPERUSER from the Market. It should automatically allow SU permissions on root applications.
Then you will have permanent root with a faster kernal!

Re: Help! False root?
If you're having an issue with an application gettinng root access use an app called superuser by chainsdd. It will remember apps and give them the access they need. As for the root, I dint look at the link, but if you enter a terminal emulator and type su and gte a # prompt you have a rooted phone. If it says access denied then you don't have root access.

Humm, so I used the " joeykrim-SDX - Permanent Root for Epic (and Verizon Fascinate) - Confirmed " method and it worked fine... Actually I had trouble, but I think that's because my abd failed on one of the pushes while I was root and then as non-root I couldn't touch the target file... Anyway, got that taken care of and the permanent root seems to be working. Doing tethering with no problem...
Should i revert this root method and use the XDA method mentioned? At first glance the XDA version appears to replace the kernel? Anyway, thoughts?
