Question Can't Remove Superuser to Reroot

Just flashed Sinless ROM and although it came with SuperSU by chainfire. I decided I wanted to remove it and install superuser by clockworkmod instead. For some reason superuser app didn't actually root the system, so I attempted to uninstall it and reinstall SuperSU. This is where I'm stuck. I cannot remove superuser app no matter what I try, even deleting it with a file manager or disabling the app. Anyone have any ideas? Really need my root back. Thanks

If it's in /system, you need root to remove it (which you don't have). I suggest going into recovery and then flashing Superuser with the SU binaries that allows root to work.

Tried this and that is what I am attempting to remove from the system to no avail. Anything else I can try? I don't know why it won't give superuser access either.

So flashing that zip didn't flash the SU binaries either?

Try flashing this then: http://download.chainfire.eu/382/Sup...erSU-v1.93.zip

The main important thing is to get the SU binaries installed to allow the superuser apps to work. Once you have that installed try to change superuser apps again (do not choose the full remove option as that will also remove the SU binaries).

Another option is to try flash the ROM again.

Just did this buy with v.1.8 of SuperSU and everything worked perfect. Thank you
