Default [Q] SU Binaries missing

Hey all, about a month ago I flashed Hyperdrive. I messed up not clearing cache/things and it left a few odd bugs that i just dealt with.
Since then I've decided to fix it all up and flash a new rom but now my Safestrap is saying i'm not rooted and SU is saying I don't have the binaries. I'd like to just get off this rom and into something fresh and without bugs but first I need to re-root it looks like. Any help on where to go from here?
-Verizon S4, 4.4.2, NC5

The only problem is now I'm getting stuck flashing the roms. It seems like stock slot one won't mount system and if i try a different slot it just doesn't work.

Default Binary Manifest Download Fails!?

Hey Josh,
Thought I'd jump im here because the post seemed relevant to the problem I'm having. I have a Samsung Galaxy S4, build NC5 with Verizon. I rooted phone with Towel Root and verified with Root Checker and Busy Box. I am using SuperUser Elite and the binary shows as outdated (in red) but when I tap to update it says downloading manifest.... fail. I then hit try again and it says superuser has stopped working. I have uninstalled and reinstalled several times to no avail. I also installed Titanium Backup. I've read about downloading a zip and saving to sd card and then flashing rom and/or starting up in recovery mode and I am not familiar with doing any of that. Any help would be appreciated as I've about had it with the root thing. Thanks ahead of time.
