    I did the One-click-Root and then got the update OTA and let it install, but now I'm on the exclamation point/android guy screen and can't do anything!

    What do I do?

    Rom manager has to be able to get super user permission. You have to root again to be able to flash the recovery with Rom manager.

    I am unlocked. The power up screen still shows an unlocked icon. I didn't know that I have to re-root after an update....

    Never rooted before and am considering trying one click. Are there any negative side effects of using this process? Any problems at all? If not, do you happen to have a link to the new one click 2.0? Sorry for all the noob questions and concerns.

    All the information and pros and cons are out there.

    The original problem in this thread was warned about time and time again throughout the various threads regarding the update. If people are going to jump into modding, they should be a bit more thorough in their research before clicking OK.

    My opinion, of course.

    Can I ask why you even want to root if you don't already have an idea of the negatives and positives?

    My question was not so much about the pros and cons of rooting, but rather the pros and cons of using the one-click method. Now worries, among other reasons, I am considering rooting because I feel that it will allow me to more fully use my phone. One of the advantages of the Nexus is that it is (supposedly, lol) easy to root and I would like to learn.

    The only disadvantage to the One Click method is not learning how to do it the long way by yourself.

    I guess it doesn't matter either way because even when spoon fed there are still hiccups.

    Ok, so I manually installed the 2.3.5 update on my One Click rooted unit using CWM.

    Now I've lost root, and want to get it back without having to reunlock (and losing all my data) as the bootloader is already unlocked.

    I'm not really interested in installed the SDK, is there a way to go through the one click mod without re-unlocking the bootloader? I just want it to flash CWM so I can re-add Superuser and be rooted again.

    Hey man, how's it going?

    You having a good day?

    You just gonna keep making new threads or are you going to listen to what people have been telling you on this and other boards? I mean, the dude who created the One Click Root method answered you in another thread.

    Threads merged. Prior to posting again a quick once-over of the forums rules might be a good idea. One that might stand out as applicable to this situation would be:

    Thanks chud. I know it annoys you that I asked the same question, but no one really answered the question. They say reflash CWM, run One Click. One Click fastboot unlocks and wipes the phone, and I haven't used the SDK before to know how to "reflash."

    So when I asked "How do I reflash," and people answer "reflash," it doesn't help me as much as you might think. I know this sounds dumb to you, but I doubt I'm the only one out there having difficulty with this and simply continually denying an update indefinitely is not a great solution.

    Having said that, I do appreciate the help that has been offered by everyone else, and after perusing the run.bat in the One Click I think I'm figuring out what's going on and will try to "reflash CWM"

    Manually installing the update is pretty much flashing so if you did that then you know how to flash something. It's just another word for install.

    I did. Honestly it involved reading Shabby Penguin's one click code and figuring out what was going on. I was on a Palm Pre for 2 years and this is my first foray into Android, so the whole rooting process was really intimidating.

    This wasn't too complicated, which is why I can understand your reaction, but I do see how others less tech literate could be confused.

    Did you ever find a fix for this? I'm rooted and have SU access, but when I try to flash clockworkmod (via rom manager or by using the .img file) the recovery goes away after I restart my phone.

    I used the manual method of unlocking, using the cmd in windows to put clockwork on, then flashing the su file.

    I found a fix for my problem though. Seems like I had to go into the system folder and rename a file.
    Here's a link: [Q] Nexus S (rooted) does not save clockworkmod recovery after reboot - xda-developers

    Thanks for your concern though, greatly appreciated!
