If using the "Unroot/Stock 4.2" Kit, does it overwrite CWM and flash the stock recovery so that OTA updates are possible?

Default SU binary doesn't install

I used the automated root kit and got hung up with the SuperSU install in CWM recovery. CWM said SD card couldn't be mounted and therefore couldn't find the file in downloads.

So, rebooted and downloaded SuperSU from market. When I opened it up I get the message "There is no SU binary installed and SuperSU cannot install it."

After a search I came across others who have had the same problem. Went to:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1538053

And then downloaded CWM-SuperSU-v0.99.zip and flashed it in CWM recovery. Rebooted and all was good.

Thanks for the tools!

Wug's kit is not for macs. Not too mention your comment is disrespectful to efforts made by the OP. I found this tool kit to be very helpful. By the way, what happened to 1kds?

Man, was getting fed up with my Nexus with /0 and /legacy folders I decided to do a clean wipe with this toolkit. Followed all the directions, it wiped the phone, but kept the ROM I was running before instead of the stock rom and I don't have any service anymore :/

It cleared all my data on the hard drive though, so no nandroids to jump back to.

I don't consider myself dumb when it comes to flashing, I've been doing it since my Evo 4g. I'm just confused as heck as to what is going wrong.


Edit, nevermind. Finally got it to boot up to install another ROM and flashing Sprint Radio. Thanks.
