Default [Q] Superuser Binary (su) must be updated.

So I used motochopper when I first bought my S4 and it rooted my phone just fine. After updating to 4.4 kit kat I lost my root status and now I am getting this message about updating my binary code for super user. If anybody has any tips I would much appreciate it.

you can't direct root anymore

see the general section on the root workaround and downgrade threads by muniz and ted

Have same trouble with mine also after update to 4.4.2. Yet can run Root Checker and it says its rooted, but it is not. But at least phone works OK, just No Root.

Definitely not strange, specifically because our bootloader is locked and that one isn't. If our bootloader was unlocked we would have had root as soon as our update was released because Chainfire puts out his autoroot for unlocked S4's but we can't flash it since it isn't signed.
