You need a newer version of TWRP to flash 4.4 Rom

Last one is 2.6.3.1

SuperSU says.....There is no binary installed, and super SU cannot install it. this is a problem! if you just upgraded to android 4.3 you need to manually re-root. Any clues on what to do?

Still having issue....after I updated to TWRP 2.6.3.1 I flashed the rooted stock image to get it back to square one and works but I when I went to put on a ROM from 2 different developers it gets stuck on reboot ....should I flash T mobile SG3 PIT? Any thoughts? Thanks
