Question [Q] Rooting but NOT!!!

Had originally rooted. Installed Cyanogenmod.Everything worked fine until I updated a nightly. Phone went into boot/reboot loop. I was finally able 2 get into recovery & wipe cache, dalvic & format. got Cm back up & running but now its not rooted. Tried motochanger...NOT! then Odin 7.03. using CF-Auto-Root-jfltesprl-sphl720.tar.md. Wen I ran it shows passed but & rooted but wen I use root checker it shows not rooted. Anyone with a solution? Plz advise. Thank you

I'm pretty sure motochanger doesn't work with our phones seeing as how they are Samsung...cf-auto root is what you need..

Exactly this. If it shows pass in Odin but you still don't have the superuser app or are missing binaries you can usually install supersu from the play store.

If that doesn't work, you can try the superuser switcher app, also from the play store, and then try superuser.

Hope this helps.
