Thumbs down [Q] problems rooting

I just went through root process for my AT&T lg G2 [ROOT] Root your G2 [ATT|VZW|TMO|KT|RGS|BELL|TELUS|OPEN] [Yay!]
superuser was installed but no su binary. root checker says your device does not have proper root. I tried running root.bat again but continue to get this message/ error

Mounting system RW and pushing SU, then remounting system RO again
mount: Operation not permitted
failed to copy 'su' to '/system/xbin/su': Read-only file system
Unable to chown /system/xbin/su: No such file or directory
Unable to chmod /system/xbin/su: No such file or directory
mount: Operation not permitted
Installing superuser
3506 KB/s (1468798 bytes in 0.409s

Drivers seem ok,
should i try another root?
Please help

Yes all of this is true. I even tried it again. Same error message and no such binary.

Think I'll uninstall superuser and try again with a fresh download.

Yes, make sure you have the updated root package. I'm currently away from my desk but if I recall correctly, if your phone is fully updated the root package that is in the root thread doesn't work but somewhere that author posted an updated version for updated phones.
