You have to retry the rooting process (the second time it should work).
I've finally sorted it out now - on the first flash of the kdz my phone pretty much remained the same, it bought it back to life and it wasnt reset at all and i couldnt root it.
On the second flash of the kdz my phone went through the whole set up process again (enter google account, language etc) and i managed to root easily after that.
It's put me off installing a custom recovery now though
Ive expereince with the htc one x, dell streak, zte blade ...... all fine but with this im worried about getting a recovery installed incase i mess up again!
I know there is TWRP recovery and Philz recovery available but using flashify was what got me into this mess - do you suggest i use the usb cable and connect to my pc and install a recovery that way?
Side note - ive downloaded TWRP and Phils recoveries but none of them have a Windows Batch File to run hence me using Flashify - ive put the question on both of those threads aswell - where is the BAT command to run?
Thanks for your help
