I have tried every toolkit and manually pushing it and flashing it from recovery and no go. With TWRP it says failed. with CWM it says it installed. But when I reboot and try and run a app that requires root, it says that I do not have root.

Stock Tmo 4.4.2 ROM, S-On, Unlocked

What am I doing wrong?

I have tried multiple SU.zips as well as Superuser-3.1.3-arm-signed.zip. Is there a different one I should be using?

I downloaded the UPDATE-SuperSU-v1.93.zip and pushed it to the phone and booted into TWRP and chose install and browsed to the sdcard and clicked on the zip file and it says:

Error FLashing zip /sdcard/UPDATE-SuperSU-v1.93
Updating Partition details
E: Unable to mount ./cache'
E: Unable to mount '/data'

I think I fixed it. I updated TWRP to 2.6.3.3 and it did not say fail when I flashed it. Unfortunately Google is re-installing 100 apps and I have to wait for something to be installed that needs root.

I will report back soon.
