    Post Epic 4G Touch Inproperly rooted????

    I am running build # cm_epic4gtouch-user 4.1.1 JR003H eng. darknight. 20120801.062759 release-keys on my Epic 4G touch and far as I know I used clockworkmod to flash it on to the device so It has to be rooted but titanium backup is saying " Sorry, I could not acquire root privileges. This application will *not* work! Please verify that your ROM is rooted and include BusyBox, and try again This attempt was made using the "/system/xbin/su" command. I downloaded BusyBox and its saying there was a problem opening a shell with root access. This is either being caused by superuser/supersu or a device that is inproperly rooted. I then downloaded Root Checker it says "Sorry! This device does not have proper root access.Before I flashed the Jelly Bean ROM I had CM9 on my device and everything worked perfect there was no sign of it being inproperly rooted until I Flashed this room and now when I try to flash other Jelly Bean ROMs there would be a error or it would say something like installation aborted. My question is basically what am I doing wrong? And any advice on how to me fix my problem or am I going to have to reroot and reinstall CWM?

    Use odin to flash the el26 kernel packed with cwm 5 made by chris41g. Use that to flash jelly bean roms. The rim you are currently on sounds like a beta or alpha by dark knight. There may have been a bug in it. Try a new rom

    I concur. I remember reading that some people using DK's JB ROMs had issues with SuperUser. I also highly suggest you Mobile Odin the EL26 kernel packed with CWM and use that to flash one of the current JB ROMs. There's a ton of options available ... Pure Google AOSP, CM10, AOKP, Paranoid Android, Codename Android and MIUI.
