[Q] Updated OTA 4.4.2 - Lost root...now what?

Hi all, sorry if this question is a bit pre-mature given the update just came out. I was rooted prior to the update and had VooDoo OTA installed. Long story short, the update went horrible but I was able to recover to stock and receive the update again (which worked fine the second time).

In all of this, I did lose root and was wondering if there is a way to regain it now or do I need to wait for someone much smarter then me to figure this out? Ultimately, all I really need root for is wireless tether.

Thanks in advance for any feedback.

Is your bootloader unlocked? If so you can just flash root and it'll work.

Is your bootloader unlocked?

Also, off topic and purely for personal reasons, which wireless tether do you use? I seemed to have issues making any work properly when I was rooted and running stock ROM.

Sadly, bootloader is locked.

For wireless tether, I was just using the stock tether but did the "entitlement check" change to use it. Need root to do it again.

Given that I have a locked bootloader does it mean I'm out of lock period or just until someone figures out how to get past it (assuming this happens).

As far as I know there isn't a way to root the latest OTA on a locked bootloader. So yes, it would seem you are out of luck.

Do you have a different source for the CWM file? When I follow the link to that page and click on the file to download it, it opens a new tab and displays as HTML/text rather than saving as .img downloaded file.

Please help - thanks!

Can you install supersu from stock recovery? I have a unlocked bootloader.
