Default [Q] [q] after 3 hours,..Unlocked bootloader but continious failure in rooting

Hey,

I decided after a couple of months to finally root my Nexus 4. I followed a manual guide, I didn't want to use a toolkit because I'd figure I'd learn it the proper way. Anyhow, If I go to the bootloader it clearly says it's unlocked. As the guide told me I then went into the clockwerk recovery and installed SuperSu 1.89.

I then proceed to restart my Nexus 4 to then be told that by SuperSu that there are no binaries installed and thus has no root access. It has been driving me nuts and I have spend 3 hours troubleshooting with google searches and experimentation because I hate to just make a thread without researching myself first. what am I missing?


Thanks, a lot.

If you flashed the correct Supersu zip, then it should have also installed binaries. Did you install the zip from Chainfire's site?

Try flashing it again. Sometimes it doesn't seem to stick.
