After this open SuperSu app and see if you can update. If updated successfully then reboot your phone.

Many thanks. It worked! SuperSU updated just fine, and root checker shows root access. What did these commands actually do and what was the problem?

You have Superuser and SuperSu in your phone and the Superuser is the default one which root no longer working. So these commands basically remove the Superuser "su" executable file, which allowed your SuperSu to be updated and became a default root.

Makes sense. I get the concept. Thank you very much for your help. I Googled over and over and couldn't come up with an answer.

Red face Using Saferoot with Knox disable

No amount of searching is finding me an answer how to remedy this. I don't really care about trying 25 different ROMS or such, but just want root access again for Titanium Backup. Ideas?

I had tried the saferoot and it failed several times, until i installed kies 3 here's how finally was able to root my SCH-R530u Us cellular phone with JB 4.3:

downloaded saferoot & unzipped, then installed kies 3 & run it (make sure your phone is detected ok in kies) after kies opens & your phone is recognized open saferoot and run it. wait for the phone to restart, then go to play store and download supesu and install it or update it, then open supersu & it should ask to install binary. that should do it! Hope this helps

I downloaded the 1.91 SuperSU update, and have tried multiple times to flash via stock recovery. After verifying update package comes up, it fails to verify update signature, ends, reboots, and doesn't install. I uninstalled SuperSU and tried to flash and it doesn't install.

I have Googled and Googled with no solutions.

I am also finding that this OTA isn't very stable. I am having intermittent weird issues like today my camera just wouldn't work for a while until reboot, and the phone has turned itself off a couple of times.

can you please tell me how did you manage to disable knox because i have the same exact problem tnx
