      im not sure how useful this will be, and i know ive totally taken over this thread with problems which turned out to be from the superuser app, but ive resolved those problems. maybe if others run into the problems detailed in previous posts this might help (although i do acknowledge its only me that seems to be having them). Anyways, essentially i installed superSU and deleted the superuser.apk from the app folder. no more errors, no more force closes - no more issues and i can finally enjoy bobs fantastic rom and v6! all running super fast! mny thanks bob and apols to all for taking over this thread. lets hope the issues stay away and i wont bug u anymore lol cheers!

        I have used both Superuser and SuperSU in various ROMs on several devices and I just want to issue one cautionary note. While I like SuperSU (and it's currently embedded in the ROM I use on my HTC Rezound), some ROMs will "break root" if you remove SuperSU to switch back to Superuser. You can't just switch SU apps in every ROM. I'm just saying, "be careful out there."

          oh agreed, its not something i planned, or plan to change again - it was simply i could keep using superuser and not have a stable or working rom, or switch and be able to use bobs great rom. no idea why superuser was constantly not working, straight out the gate it just wasnt working - and i know im in the minority. SU does have a mode to allow switching to other roms to avoid the problems you mention, but as i say - its not something im in a hurry to change, as long as it functions as it should and doesnt crash on me - thats good enough :-)

          i did note while browsing the old interweb that the problems i was seeing are quite common with superuser above version 3.0 on some roms. that doesnt explain why noone else here (including bob) were having the same problem, id love to know why that is. but until an answer presents itself, superSU will do the job, if it works then i cant see why theres a rush to change. plus SU does have a nicer prompt than superuser lol

            an idea just occured to me though....i did read that hard resetting can cause the loss of root - now in this an all of the previous roms after the initial boot when i have no sound or sd access - which is explained by Bob, i also cant use the touch screen, so i have always pressed the power button to switch off, then boot normally and all is fine. thats never been a problem before, but im wondering if with the inclusion of a newer superuser in this rom that by doing that it is somehow losing root....

              Yes doing a reset with the pin hole can be dangerous to the file system. It's not just loosing root but it can hose files up. So when you first flash and the screen comes up PLEASE wait a while before hitting that reset pin hole! This is to allow the system to complete building the dalvic-cache and /data. If your too quick to reboot, good chance you will hose up the system.

              What I do is on first boot wait until the screen times out on it's own. Then while it's asleep, I hit the pin hole.

              I think I explain this in the new readme.txt?

                What i mean is after flashing on first boot when theres no sound, i press and hold power to power off, i never use the pin reset. Its what ive always had to do after first boot of any rom. I dont remember it being in the readme, but because ive flashed a few times now i may well have missed it. Its strange that its only 2.2 which has been a prob. Not to worry, SU has solved it for me, and as its just me thats effected its all good and the roms running sweet :-)

                  Bob, do we need to run the supercharger script every time we reboot as is the case with some scripts, or do the changes persist between boots? Thanks!

                      ok thanks, wasnt sure as some scripts do need to be run each time - cheers :-)

                        Well in fact the 99charger script is run each reboot automatically. Thats is what init.d is. Any scripts in there run every boot up.

                          Great Bob, thanks for the clarification :-)

                          just got to add 2.2 really is killer, fastest ever, super smooth. multitasking is so much better, especially my old nemesis of browsing and listening to poweramp! no glitches (ok maybe a very few if its a heavy page). superSU is still doing well, many thanks and congrats Bob :-)

                            If I'm running the old 2.2 Pro ROM and am not having problems, is there an advantage to upgrading to 2.2a?

                            Comment


                              have a look a page 4, 2.2 was a beta version - a mix up on the server, bob recommened everyone update to 2.2a :-)

                                Sorry folks - another question! - a lot of things are occuring to me! Bob, does the latest set of Roms from yourself act the same on both 4gb and 8gb versions of the G2? I ask because when i check the space available, its more like I have a 4GB G2 rather than an 8GB? I dont have the numbers handy at the mo, but just wondered if the gb size wasnt a relevant factor for the roms? Cheers!
