Default [Q] Odd issue with root disappearing?

Hi,

I've just upgraded the OS of my HTC One to 4.4 with Sense 5.5 and rooted the handset.


I took the majority of information and downloads from here:

http://htconeroot.com/htc-one-stock-...m-for-htc-one/

while the rooting stuff I grabbed from here:

http://htconeroot.com/htc-one-root/h...ndowsmaclinux/


So ok this is my 3rd OS upgrade with root so in a basic sense I did this:

- Updated TWRP to version 2.7.x
- Used TWRP recovery WIPE option to format / (root)
- Installed the 4.4 stock ROM from above link
- TWRP then asked me if I would like to root the device and so I said ok to that
- Booting into the OS everything was fine and I had the SU-Root icon in the Apps menu


I'm not sure what happened if the battery got drained or so but in anycase after a restart the handset was no longer rooted??


As I have the 2.65 SU-ROOT Zip file on my storage partition I went back to TWRP and Install then clicked on the Zip file and re-rooted the device; then wiped the cache and booted back into the OS.

For some reason now the phone isn't able to be rooted at all? I am pretty sure I had similar behavior with Android 4.3, though the initial stock build was absolutely fine.... I think I managed to get from 4.1 to 4.2 successfully.


Will I need to format the handset again then re-install the ROM and re-root or is something else going on which I'm unaware of??


I've also noticed that the device becomes un-rooted each time the battery goes low or dies for some reason... a persistent root would be nice as I have many apps needing full root access; not to mention being able to work with the full Android system too.


Would anyone be able to suggest anything? Thanks!
