    Unhappy Lost Root Access

    Hello I have a Samsung Galaxy S phone from Cellular South a.k.a. The Showcase. And I have just recently upgraded it to the 2.2.1 firmware. Before the upgrade I rooted my phone and had no issues with it, the phone is awesome with its rooted potential. Well I knew that after the upgrade that I was gonna lose my root access. So I went through the method of re-rooting my phone with the 2.2.1 upgrade and had no success. I tried the super one click,z4root, and even ginger-break. And none of these methods proved successful. I can not re-root my phone at all. Is it still possible to root my phone after the 2.2.1 upgrade? If so will someone please help me out and give me a step by step instruction on how to root my phone again? Your time and efforts will be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time.

    I just wanted to say thank you for your interest in my problem I'm having. But I regret to say that those methods did not work for me again. I am still not able to root my showcase and I have no idea what the problem can be. Is there anything else that I mite can try to root my phone again? I have spent several hours on this and I'm almost ready to give up. Is there anything else out that I can try?
