    Default Need serious help!!!! I have researched!!!

    Ok so I got the stupid update to my Fascinate the other day and dummy me forgot to unroot my device. Now, because I am a MAC user, I can not longer access the sd card to root my phone. I also tired Z4 and this is not working either.

    I currently have superuser.apk still on my apps list, but it is non functional and quite annoying. Obviously I cannot remove it either unless I have root access. It is like I am in a catch 22 here......PLEASE supply me with some great wisdom I have yet to discover by googling!

    I was in the same boat with my wife's Fascinate last night. ADB rooting wouldn't take, just got the "already installed" error. If you can, I would bootcamp a Windows partition so you have access to Odin for times like these. Using Adrynalyne's modified CWM/root package, I was able to fix it

    Instead of bootcamp for Mac I would use parallel desktop as it will allow you to run windows the same time as osx plus you can share your Mac folders w/ the virtual machine. This way you don't have to create separate folders. You have access to windows and osx at the same time.

    OK so I somehow got my Mac to push busybox and su. I had to do this in order to get su access again to remove the original root. I can delete any system file now, except superuser. Any suggestions. I just want to be stock again with dj05. I am done with Samsung!

    If I acquire a windows PC and I use Odin to flash dj05 stock.....will that remove all root files?

    Yes it will. While in ADB, did you try removing superuser with the commands at the bottom of Cory's first post in the "how to root on a Mac " thread?

    You might be right. When I had a blackberry and it went belly up. I tried for hours trying to get thief program to work in parallels, but that was version 4. Version 6 is a lot more advance. I have version 6 but I don't want to root my device or jack it up. Anyone else have any experience in case I get crazy and want to try this.

    be careful. if you are planning to return the phone, you need to have either, di01 or dl09, unrooted. dj05 is a leak rom. it will get you a $500 bill from vzw.

    If you want, I can flash my phone back to dj05 stock and make a.cwm backup for you to flash. I would think that as long as update.zip is on your sd card you should be able to get into cwm. Pm me if you would like that

    Thanks to everyone! Oddly enough here is how I solved my issue.

    Went through Cory's steps about 50 times....it would root, but would not unroot. Well, correction it would just not delete superuser.

    I figured that since z4 created this problem I would attempt to use it to fix....yeah bad idea

    Finally I rooted with Cory's steps again. I downloaded a system unistaller apparently. Unistalled superuser. Went back through Cory's steps and rooted that way.

    I now have a rooted phone that can be unrooted successfully at any time! I tried already.....LOL.
