    Might want to add this to the directions:

    adb shell chmod 06755 /system/bin/su
    adb shell chmod 06755 /system/app/Superuser.apk

    Otherwise some programs like Titanium backup will complain about permissions on those files.

    TiBu fixed its own permissions and it wasn't an issue for me.

    Before you flash anything can you get back to stock? How to get back to stock using Odin



    Have you backed up your files and pictures? I see too many desperate cries for help recovering deleted priceless pictures with no solution.

    It fixed it for me as well but figured it would be better to do this while rooting. Some guides mention to do this while rooting.

    Can this step be added to the OP? It does not mention this and people are having problems with getting their custom recoveries to stick. They are not going to look through the whole thread here to find this step.

    Added this part to the OP:

    ***In order for CWM to stick and avoid having to flash it every time, you need to Install Root Explorer from the market and delete or rename the file "recovery-from-boot.p" found in /system *Mount as R/W first* See this link for help

    Isn't Root Explorer a paid app, though? Are there free file explorers that will help with that step?

    I'm not sure why the mostly recommended solution to making CWM permanent is to remove the "system/recovery-from-boot.p" file instead of just renaming it.

    If you need to go back to the stock recovery, it's a (semi) complicated procedure to do so. If you just renamed the file, to something like "recovery-from-boot.p.bak", then the CWM installation is still permanent, but restoring the stock recovery just requires renaming the file back to what it was and rebooting.

    I know that ES File Explorer will work, that's what I use.
