Maybe it is time for you to install a new build?

By the way, you might need to check root access using other app instead of Tiback up.
I use tiback-up in my other device and it does not work. I flash SuperSu and then it finally worked again.
Maybe you phone still has root access but just tibackup won't regcognize it. check root access first. Then try flash SuperSu.
You last choice is clean reinstall a new build

I hav upgraded to d latest version of slimkat....reverted bak to 3.6 as battery life was poor on latest build.... Also tried latest jbx and that 27/2....due to force close and black screen issues(sometimes)....removed it...... 1st thing i did wen i lost root access was to install superuser app and also tried root checker app (root access had no prob)....root apps dont work.... Den tried fixing it with bmm (install root access Nd fix permission option).... Nothng wrkd.... Den checked the developer setting (root access to apps and adb was there.... No prob).... Den i went bak to ics..... Tried root. Exe thing again..... Still no success.... Atlast i restored ics using bmm......all my settings and custom roms got destroyed...... (but gained root access bak after restore).... Nw no prob....... Anywz ty so much...... I'm not sure, d prob might be in install root and fix permission option.... That caused error in superuser app.....

Using slimkat 3.6 for (almost 2 months)
