Default [Q] Installed omni ROM and it says I don't have root.

So I used the CF Auto root to root my nexus 5. I have installed the omni rom and I am told I don't have root or that I need to install superuser, which i tried to do without success. What do I do? The prompt comes up when launching root apps

Just flash the superSU.zip in recovery and you`ll be rooted again. Link http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1538053.

You could also switch to the latest TWRP and it will ask if you want to root before leaving your recovery .
