Hey! when ifirst got my nexus 5 (few months ago) i rooted it and instaled purity rom with trinity kernel and everything worked fine,
how ever like a month ago when i updated my kernel, when i launch supersu it saids no su binary installed please re root. at the time i didnt care so i just left it but know i would like to root it again (its weird if my phone is not rooted how do i still have purity rom and stuff like that)

anyway is there a way i can reroot without losing ANYTHING? i spent way to many hours setting up my nova launcher settings and stuff that that because im a theme whore lol
i haven't been keeping up with the latest stuff so let me know! thanks

PS im not using my own computer so if i reroot do i have to install all the adb drivers and stuff on this pc?

Hi,

Same thing happened to me, just flash SuperSU in recovery: http://download.chainfire.eu/382/Sup...erSU-v1.93.zip, it should do the trick.

just so you know as well... root is independent of ROMs. you can have custom ROMs without root.

It shouldn't wipe anything unless you tell it to.
