Updated Multisite privacy now several sites not working ... need to revert back to previous plugin

I just updated plugin. I am running WP 3.4.1. I do not usually update right away on the network side to ensure all plugins and themes are compatible before the upgrade, so I don't know if that is the problem but I have a coupld errors being thrown. If I go in to change the theme and click activate, I get the following error:

Fatal error: Cannot redeclare my_scripts_method() (previously declared in /home/bluewatc/public_html/wp-content/plugins/sitewide-privacy-options/sitewide-privacy-options.php:82) in /home/bluewatc/public_html/wp-content/themes/maxmag/functions.php on line 14

On a site that is currently running this theme live I get a 500 Internal Server Error.

Because I have sites up live on this theme, I desperately need to roll back this plugin or deactivate. Since it is a Must-Use, I cannot deactivate. I tried simply removing the plug in file via ftp which of course made new errors so I put it back. I am not 100% sure which version I was running prior to the update, but all sites and themes were functioning fine, so although I am convinced this isn't multisite privacy's problem I still have to have these themes functioning and quickly because sites are out there live now erroring out.

PLEASE HELP ASAP! I'm stuck. Thanks!

    In case this helps... here is the snippet of code from the plug-in the error is referring to (line in question is bolded):

    add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'my_scripts_method' );


    function additional_privacy_init() {
    load_plugin_textdomain( 'sitewide-privacy-options', false, dirname( plugin_basename( __FILE__ ) ) . '/languages' );

    function my_scripts_method() {
    wp_enqueue_script( 'jquery' );

    Now, here is the line in the theme file function.php being referred to (line in question bolded, but note that according to my count it is line 15 not 14??):


    // Enqueue Javascript Files

    function my_scripts_method() {
    wp_enqueue_script( 'jquery' );
    wp_enqueue_script('flexslider', get_template_directory_uri() . '/js/jquery.flexslider.js', array('jquery'));
    wp_enqueue_script('elastislide', get_template_directory_uri() . '/js/jquery.elastislide.js', array('jquery'));
    wp_enqueue_script('maxmag', get_template_directory_uri() . '/js/scripts.js', array('jquery'));
    wp_enqueue_script('ticker', get_template_directory_uri() . '/js/ticker.js', array('jquery'));
    wp_enqueue_script('respond', get_template_directory_uri() . '/js/respond.min.js', array('jquery'));
    add_action('wp_enqueue_scripts', 'my_scripts_method');

    Hi there by using my super powers i can tell you that the last version you were running prior to the update was :slight_smile:

    Actually no superpowers involved but it sounded way more interesting than saying i checked your plugin activation records :slight_smile:

    Hope this helps.
