thanx in advance
Root is lost because the supersu app was updated. DO NOT UPDATE SUPERSU APP and you wont lose root. This issue exists on pretty much every custom Sprint ne2 (4.4.2 TouchWiz) rom. If you would have read the thread it is filled with dozens of users with same issue and the answer has been posted. Also I have a post on how to fix the problem but it is only for experienced users.
