Every time i turn on my galaxy, SU always asks me for permission even though i have clicked remember/ always allow. Its begging to get annoying especially when using set cpu and one click lag fix when i have to press it around 8 times for the app to actually load :/

Has anyone else had this issue/ has anyone got a fix for me?

Thanks

I would suggest re-rooting your phone with the update.zip file, then go to the Market and download the free Superuser app by ChainsDD.

You may get an error installing it on the Galaxy S. If so, do this from your computer's terminal:

adb remount

adb shell rm /system/app/Superuser.apk

adb shell pm uninstall com.noshufou.android.su

adb reboot

Then go back to the Market and download/install again.

Run the newly installed app, it will probably tell you there's a newer binary available, go ahead and let it install it.

You'll now be up to date with the latest su binary and the latest su GUI to it. This will allow easy updating for it from the Market, and it should resolve your permission problem. Obviously you'll have to regrant permission to anything that hasn't gotten it yet under the new binary, but as long as you check remember box, it should be the only time you have to do so.

Good luck.

This one works for me, but I don't use MCR. It should still work, though. You can also find it on xda with an easy search.

Don't forget, you MUST rename this to update.zip, and you MUST put it in the ROOT of your INTERNAL sdcard (not the external)...Take out the external if you need to to make sure it's in the right place. The path for the internal card is /sdcard. The external is /sdcard/sd.

Install it by placing on the internal sdcard, then rebooting to recovery (adb reboot recovery, or reboot recovery on the phone's terminal, or power off then power on while holding home/up-volume/power-button). Once in recovery, select the update.zip option, then let the update run and the phone should reboot with new su.

Sorry if some of that is obvious, just trying to save you time if it wasn't! :huh:

Enjoy.
