hi, i recently flashed the MIUI rom for droid x, when i rebooted i didnt have my root access to restore my apps from a previous rom and everytime i reboot the rom wipes itself and i start the rom from scratch. im pretty much stuck on this rom and i cant reroot because the rebooting required erases the first processes taken. i really need help, and as soon as possible.

Just go into the root app or super user can't remember and enable root access again.... And you will have root access again!!!

Miui has a built in superuser app. You still have root, you just need to enabled it. No need to use the one from the market, they will conflict with each other.

There should be a settings folder on one of the homescreens, open it and find the Su app, enable it.

Would it work if i find a signed update.zip for droid x and install update through the stock android recovery mode, would that bring me back to stock?

Miui roms you have to open the super user app and turn root permissions on, its off by default. So just turn on super user permissions, uninstall titanium backup, and reinstall it. I do that all the time when i first flash a miui update. I will forget to turn super user permissions back on and install titanium and it will say it needs root permissions. You have to un install titanium, turn root permissions on, then re install titanium back up and the pro key. Done problem solved. If you installed all your apps that need root permissions before you enabled root permissions, you will have to uninstall and re install them all to fix it. Just the apps that need root access.

Download root checker from the market and check if you have root. But if it was me i would have all ready sbf'd and fixed my problems. By the time you Figure out what the problem is, you could if sbf'd and set your phone back up multiple times. Sbf and start fresh. I do it before every ROM i install. Make sure the md5 sum match too. If they don't you need to re download the file. And you are not stuck anywhere. learn to sbf if your are going to be flashing. I have done it so many times. I can sbf, re root, install a ROM, restore my apps in like 30 to 45 minutes. In that time includes restoring about 190 apps or so with titanium. So it doesn't take that long.

Its not as hard to do as it may sound, its a couple extra steps that's all. Once u sbf one time you will be good. Plus you willl know that anything you mess up a sbf will fix it.
