even root checker says i do have root

Game Killer - Comments on Play Store show that this is a known issue with 4.3 and SuperSU with this app.

GameCIH - (I assume this is what you meant) Comments on Play Store also show a known issue with 4.3. Some comments from dev about enabling USB debugging, but it appears to be a 4.3 issue.

Looks like you are out of luck for now unless you step back to 4.2 or below.

If you have the MK6 bootloader, avoid the MA4 stock package. You'll need the LJ2 stock package (which does not have a bootloader in it). See this guide... you can follow it up to the point where you have MH3 on your phone and then stop:

Hello people,
I have a Note 2 (SGH-i317m) running the MVLUCMK5 Official Android 4.3 rom. I flashed the cf-autoroot from chainfire's website using odin and download mode, updated super SU as soon as the device booted, disabled Knox and got the device rooted. Root was working fine. Titanium backup could restore the app backup and everything.

However, when I restarted the phone, the root was gone. Any idea what's going on? I will have to flash CF again and it will work. But the flash counter keeps counting every flash. Is there a permanent root method for 4.3?



PS: Sorry to hijack this thread. I figured there was a relevant discussion going on, why clutter the section with a new thread. Also, since my post count is low, I couldn't post in CF's thread.

Sounds like you may be using an older version of cf-auto-root? Try this one via Odin:

main - http://autoroot.chainfire.eu/

i317m - http://download.chainfire.eu/279/CF-...l-sghi317m.zip

I flashed the same one.

Are you running the stock kernel?

After you flash cf-auto-root and boot phone, what do the contents of this file look like?

/system/etc/install-recovery.sh

Does it reference SuperSU and run daemonsu or does it reference recovery-from-boot.p ?

That's the correct file...

A deeper dive would involve looking at the permissions and properties of su and daemonsu in /system/xbin as well as a few other SuperSU related files in /system and subdirectories.

If you are running a custom kernel it's possible that it is pushing an older version of SuperSU (or other superuser app).

Do you have only the SuperSU app installed (i.e. no SuperUser or other app in the app drawer)?

Reaching at this point as it's not typical for the current versions of SuperSU to lose root.

One thing you can try is root with current, boot phone, immediately run SuperSU, choose "Full Unroot", reboot boot phone, then shutdown and reflash cf-auto-root and see if it sticks.

As for flash counter, once you get root to stick, you can use Triangle Away to reset that to zero - works for everything but the knox warranty counter.
