Question Lost root!?!?!? Help!

So I have twrp and slim Kat 4.4 on my tab 2 and I tried installing xposed framework and it says I don't have root... then I downloaded root checker and it said the same. No idea how I lost root but what's the best way to get it back without starting all over?

That's what I was asking, what's the easiest way to root manually?

So you've rooted that bad boy previously, right? If so, on Android Andi's Omni build you have to flash SuperSU after ROM and gapps. Maybe Slim is the same?

If you want to make root permanent then open titanium backup hold super su and select " convert to system app ". By this you will not loose root again until you flash a new rom. Factory reset your phone and see still you have root
