I've tried repairing root via philz recovery, then installing via playstore
then again trying philz root repair, then install via zip.

Root doesn't work anymore.
The first weird issue I noticed that let me know root was dead was WeChat stopped working application manager was reporting it was using 467gb of data :|
So I guess I'm looking at trying v1.1
Hey does it have flashlight mode?

Otherwise this rom has been one of the best I've used on the GN2 so far!!!! Thanks a million.

Before you try wiping and installing 1.1, try just flashing 1.0 over without wiping (or copying the relevant root files over from the 1.0 zip, then fixing permissions). That worked for me.

Yes the SU update causes loss of root. This is the case with all versions of Rwilco's ROM, Tx's version as well as community ROM. Set play store to never update apps automatically and update the ones you want without updating SU.

My two cents: don't dirty flash or try moving root files to get root back. Do a clean wipe and install and as much of a pain as it can be; don't restore apps and data from TBU. Any shortcut is a possibly to cause added frustration when it fails.

Excellent rom. Rock solid, clean, and fast. Thanks op!

In the past android versions, I was always able to use Hangouts and Samsung messaging simultaneously, with messages
being viewable in both and the ability to send messages from either application. I noticed that in this version, you can only use one or the other, and have to set one as the "default" messaging app, which disables the other. Any workarounds to this? I liked being able to use both.

Root not working
Hello,

I flashed from stock NE2 to this and everything went smooth. The only issue i have it seems root in not working the SuperSU app is installed but when i click it nothing happens. I used root checker and it states this device is not rooted. I even tried to manually root in TWRP 2.8 and still nothing. any ideas ?
I also tried the tool kit method and nothing it installs superSu and busybox but busybox wont install gives error about permission
Search feature on this thread keeps giving me error


Any help will be appreciated

Thank You

Check the version of SU. The newest update causes loss of root and doesn't work.

One of three things:


1. Either a reflash of the ROM will bring it back
2. Manually place the SU Files in their respective locations via recovery manually ( worked for me )
3. Flash 1.94 and then manually install the 2.01 or 2.02 SU apk..

Can you please elaborate on step 2. Like location and which exact files?

Thank you

The weird thing is I reflashed the ROM and even without Google updating the supersu at there is no root

i have manager to install supersu 2.01 but when i launch it it states no SU binaries found
