I installed everything perfectly, boot into TWRP but I was never given a prompt to install supersu. So my phone isn't rooted. I'm running Android 4.1.2 and TWRP V.2.5.0.0.

Wrong forum, US variants have their own fora. Your thread belongs here, I've asked mods to move it. Sit tight until they do.

Would you happen to have a link available? Or will any version do the trick?
