[Q] How do I fix my phone? System recovery, help!
I was installing the Blue Breeze ROM and it froze, and long story short it's on a black screen now with blue text saying:
Android system recovery <2e>
Samsung Recovery Utils
- for BML -
reboot system now
wipe data/factory reset
wipe cache partition
then there is a picture of a droid with a caution sign and it says manual mode

Problems, come help!
I killed my phone while trying to install a ROM, so I re-flashed a bunch of stuff and it's back. Some problems though - it has Superuser installed still. Even though I did a factory reset, Superuser is still there. When I try to re-root it, it goes through the whole things and gives me "error: device not found". I don't understand why it finds my device in the beginning of the process, but doesn't find it at the end.
1. How do I delete Superuser for good so I can start fresh, and re-root again?
2. What do I do now?
Here's what I did since I had the phone:
1. I was playing nice with the clean, magic roms, etc, everything was cool.
2. Then I tried to install Blue Breeze the same way and it froze the phone (later found out it was the wrong way to do it).
3. Then I followed the restore to stock thread (flashed system, kernel, etc), and brought it back to life, and Superuser was still installed. I tried to uninstall the root, and that doesn't work either.
So right now I can't uninstall Superuser, OR re-root it again because it just keeps giving me the error: device not found.

I ran into the exact same problem - 1 click root would initially find the phone and copy the files over, but after the restart, the phone wouldn't show up in the Windows device manager and the 1 click root couldn't finish the process.
Here's what I did to fix it:
Restart the phone normally and connect to it through adb - adb shell in the command prompt. Make sure you su to get superuser permissions, the phone should automatically grant it, if not, it should prompt you to authorize.
Now, you just have to manually execute the commands that 1 click root failed to:
This runs the com.sh script to set file permissions and other things. Wait a few seconds to make sure it finishes running.
These just remove the root files that were copied into the temp directory by 1 click root.
That should reboot your phone and you should be all set.

Now, start a command prompt in Windows: Start>Run and then type in cmd
I'd put all the 1 click root files in a folder on your C: drive just for easy access, for example c:\root
In the command prompt, navigate to this folder: c:\root
Type adb shell to open the adb console and connect to your phone. In adb, type su to gain superuser permissions, then just execute the commands in the previous post.

He might have to first navigate to c:/androidsdk/tools
Replace androidsdk with what ever you you named the directory when you installed the SDK.Look at your comment. Back to mine. Back to yours NOW BACK TO MINE. Sadly, it isn't mine. But if you stopped trolling and started posting useful replies it could LOOK like mine. Look down, back up, where are you? You're scrolling through comments, finding the ones that your comment could look like. Back at mine, what is it? It's a highly effective counter-troll. Look again, MY COMMENT IS NOW DIAMONDS.Anything is possible when you think before you comment or post. Im on a computer.
