Default Unlock and Temper, can not root

Dear All,

I manage to unlock my bootloader, but enter into recovery,

I also used management to installed Super SU, on internal memory,

While doing the rooting, I using TWRP Recovery method I installed Successfully Super SU, but when I reboot my phone and check for super SU which is not visible on my home screen, and using root cheker when I check with application its showing no root access.

Please help

Thanks

Vivek

you need an unsecured kernel. if you're still on stock ROM, that kernel has write protection enabled, and system changes won't survive a reboot.

I'm completely stock besides the unlocked bootloader and recovery. Do you have a kernel that you can recommend?

Hey Nkk71
That's strange, my device rooted with superSU completely stock and survives a reboot. Titanium backup and other still obtain root and root checker shows rooted.
Just curious
Phone: HTC One- Rogers unlocked
Rom: 4.4.2 Stock Sense 6
Stock Kernel

Old Phone: HTC Sensation, HD2, Tilt
Rom: ARHD
kernel: stock

I used the method shown in the video. I'm on an unlocked European HTC One, if that helps.

I stand corrected then

Can you just explain to the OP how you installed it... I'm on custom ROM so dont have these issues and i'm using superuser not superSU.

and where is the superuser.apk? i'm assuming in your case it would be under /data/app as opposed to /system/app, is that correct?

Don't know what video you're referring to, but try flashing the zip from this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1538053

This flashable zip: http://download.chainfire.eu/supersu in custom recovery.

I don't now what video either. You are right I flashed 1.93 from TWRP, didn't move the app to system. Perhaps that's why it survives.
