I thought that i open a thread about how to root the new KitKat b506 rom. If anyone had a successfull rooting, post it here. (Without custom recovery)

VRoot 1.7.6.5833 rooted my Kitkat. Stock recovery.

The only catch is, it installed a Chinese version of Supersu. In old Vroot, I could put an English Superuser in the System partition to replace it. But since the previous version, I couldn't do it. So now I have to put up with a partial English and Chinese allow-dialog. No big deal.

Vroot works. After root, install SuperSU, update binarys after install SuperSU replaces Chinese root app. Run SuperSU again to be sure all works fine.

Just a quick question if you don't mind?

Does the SuperSU app work properly, without FC when you open the app?

The reason I'm asking is that the toast message of SuperSU is really long ("SuperSU has granted blah blah blah blah blah" or something like that), and it annoys me! Whereas with Superuser, the Toast message is short and sweet (Superuser has been granted").

EDIT: Never mind, I see the latest SuperSu app on the play store is working perfectly, and I've now uninstalled Superuser.
So, I'd REALLY like to turn that toast message off, and I don't want to keep getting the popup saying that the su binary needs to be updated with Superuser.

Why are you so obsessed with rooting WITHOUT custom recovery? You can root with TWRP and revert back to stock recovery. What's the problem?

superuser.zip is not needed. TWRP will fix root itself at first reboot from recovery. After boot you find a SuperUserInstaller in your applist.
