Default [Q] No problems on CM, but when I try to flash different ROM says I'm not rooted.

Bought a Nexus 7 about a month ago, updated it to KitKat, rooted it and flashed the latest stable CM. No problems at all. Today I decided to try some other ROM's. Flashed one and the root access was acting funny so I flashed my CM recovery. Tried to flash Paranoid Android and can't even get that one to boot up. It's something to do with my root access, but I don't know what else to do. I've flashed different versions of SU and nothing is working. Everything is great as long as I stay on my CM backup but if I do anything involving updating SU or flashing a ROM it's screwed. Anybody got any ideas?

I haven't flashed CM in a couple years, other than mods I stay on stock roms but I'm thinking your problem has something to do with the kernel you have with CM and maybe changes to the partitions if any. Personally... I would flash the factory image without flashing the userdata.img so you don't lose your data. Then you can try PA or whatever.
