Force re-ask for SU

Postby wjanowski » Tue Nov 27, 2012 6:21 pm

Running on a rooted Droid Razr Maxx. First time I ran it, it asked for SU permission, but before I had a chance to grant it, it went on assuming it was non-root. Now it is blocking WiFi only, and I don't see how to force it to ask again for root?

Duh, uninstalled and reinstalled. Now it has root permission, but still only says that it's blocking WiFi. Any suggestions?

This is not an Adblock feature but Superuser feature. It totally depends on how root is implemented in a phone.

OK...what's the "right" way? I'm rooted by standard Superuser and having exactly the same problem - WiFi only blocking. This is rather annoying.

For those seeing proper blocking globally, _how_ are you rooted, exactly? (More appropriately, how does ABP decide if you're rooted?)

I don't think this is a root issue. Yesterday, without explanation, ABP showed "Ads are blocked for all connections" for about 8 hours, until I had to reboot (for other reasons). Now I'm back to WiFi-only. No changes made.

OK - got the ABP update this morning. As soon as it applied, lo and behold, all connections were blocked (i.e. this is a good thing). Rebooted, back to WiFi blocking only. UGH!
