I'm kinda stumped on what to do here and I've been scouring through threads for a couple hours trying to find similar issues to fix this on my own, so I've joined the forum asking for your help!

Well I supposedly rooted my phone by doing the Motochopper method and it fails now whenever I try to re-root the phone at the very end of the code even though it installs super user anyways. I should have all the drivers installed on my computer and I even uninstalled those drivers and reinstalled them and even did a wipe on my phone.

Then when I try to open Super User, it tells me that my SU Binary is outdated and needs updating. I try and update it and I get an error message. This is pretty much where I'm stuck at. I've installed a bunch of different things trying to get this to work properly and nothing just yet.

You probably applied the latest OTA update from about a week ago, which patched motochopper's rooting method. "Kingo" root (Google it) works even after the update.
