    Default SU Binary 3.0.3.2 & broken root

    Updated my SU binaries from 3.0.3 to 3.0.3.2 and root is now broken. Grrrrrr.

    Working on restoring older binaries. For now just consider it a warning, don't update your SU binaries.

    Should also include that I'm on Senseless ICS 1.1, so this problem may only effect those of us on ICS or it could be more widespread.

    Default Re: SU Binary 3.0.3.2 & broken root

    Restored a nandroid backup which reverted the SU binaries to 3.0.3, root is restored.

    So in the end:

    • Always have a nandroid backup ready!
    • DO NOT update SU binaries to 3.0.3.2 if you're on ICS


    If someone still on GB wants to make a nandroid backup and then update their binaries to see if 3.0.3.2 breaks root for them as well, it would be appreciated.

    Thanks for the heads up, and sage advice.
