So I had rooted my phone using the Casual method, and mistakenly took the 4.3 OTA update (which locked my bootloader). Now, I'm on the KitKat OTA update (as of yesterday). In the sticky thread about the 4.3 update, I'm seeing a couple of things that make me hopeful. To be clear, all I want to do is root the phone--not install custom ROM's.
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...2&postcount=11 says that you can use "Survival Mode" in Super SU, and http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...7&postcount=19 talks about Towelroot working.
My question is, since I got the KNOX bootloader, are these still options for me? And if the Survival mode is, how do I enable it?
Some more information. When I try to open SuperSU, it says that it's missing and can't be installed. And I'm on the May 20 build of the kernel, so I'm assuming that I can use Towelroot to root my phone--but I'd like confirmation.
Have a great day, and thanks.
