Exclamation SU not found

hi, 2months ago I root the device with cm-10.2.1-maguro all working as expected, till I liked to use voice recorder after recording stopped the app close, realize that has to do with root.

I couldnt find how to enable the app through superuser, so start to check for alternatives so I landed here
Code:
Select Code
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=eu.chainfire.supersu
no hope also with that, uninstalled. The problem :

through adb + eclipse I can browse the device folders when using adb root - OK
on device superuser still @ settings - OK
when on android terminal - and run the command su writes su not found!

then I red @ superSU GplayURL
Quote:
Superuser access management runs through a so called "su binary". There can be only one of these at a time.
how I can restore the original cm-10.2.1-maguro su binary?

Have you tried installing a rooted ROM?

I used to have this issue (but I didn't realise I had lost root because of an app), so I just downloaded and reflashed SU and all was good.

Download and flash from recovery: http://download.chainfire.eu/282/SuperSU/

When an app requests SU, you should be prompted. If you've set a default choice, you should be able to change that from the SU app. You should also be able to change previous choices from there as well.

basically the problem is :
1-voice recorder recording but no output
2-on built-in browser in any page has 'browse' to choose a file - the open dialog never opens! (aka facebook.com upload photo or imgur.com)

how I will resolve these? googlesearch=0%
