Unable to grant SU access
Hi. I recently got a shift, and have been interested in rooting it. So i have been following D5's guide on rooting the Shift, and all went well until I tried to use cmd to grant SU access, step 3. i get all the way to typing in adb shell, but when i type in SU, it says access denied. USB debugging is enabled, i can see the super user icon in my app list, and i can even use it, somewhat. So i should be able to finish my steps, right? I hope i can get this working! thanks!

I would make sure that your actually temp rooted, go back into Visionary and click temp root. If that's not it, did you make sure to click allow on your phone after typing SU?
Edit: Just read this in another thread, uninstall superuser before you temp root, if it's showing that it's installed.

when i temp root i try accessing titanium back up to see if it works and it never does. idk why it doesn't temp root for me. i use visionary and it says rooting phone and they goes back to the screen where you have options to temp root and all that stuff but other times it restarts my phone afterwards

And then sadness. I finally got the "allow super user" prompt to appear on my phone. Attempting perm root, i get all the way to step 5, and then things don't got the way i want. I reboot the phone into bootloader, and s is not off, it's on. What??? im not sure what went wrong. in step 6, i did not get the correct md5 sum, so i followed the next few steps, and everything was correct. so idk what went wrong. I am gonna try the guide D5 posted. hopefully all goes well.

no what you do is. when you open the tool up click on root. it will ask you a yes or no question. you answer no and it will install hboot to your shift then you reboot your phone and click root again on the tool and you click yes...
here is a video that the creator made to help you out
