Hi
I recently rooted my galaxy S4 using a guide from the internet. my s4 type is sph l720 and it has the kitkat update 4.4.2
i completed the rooting process and it was successful. the superuser app was installed, but no matter how many times I try to gain root access or privilege it does not allow me, and it says rooting access denied, for example i tried using game killer which was a huge disappointment, then i tried using GameCIH which was another disappointment. I tried many things and I looked everywhere but I did not find an answer. I do lack experience and i am not an expert in this, but I honestly tried a lot of stuff, I downloaded an app called root checker to confirm that I was rooted and the app confirmed it to me. I took two screen shots that my help with my issue

What guide suggests using Superuser over SuperSU? Heh

Well the two most popular ways to root the Sprint S4 is either CF Auto Root or via flashing the SuperSu zip from Chainfire via a custom recovery such as TWRP, Philz, or CWM.
