Default [Q] I Factory Reset my Rooted Huawei Y220

Hello again in need of assistance asap.

I have a somehow minor problem with my phone. I decided to factory reset my rooted huawei y220 because

-All of a sudden I can't access websites like:

I also can't access their mobile sites. I can't access the said websites from any browser from my phone at the time(Stock browser & Dolphin Browser). There is no problem with my internet connection since I am able to access these websites from my laptop and other handheld devices.

FORTUNATELY, I stumbled upon a browser named UC MINI. I can somehow access these websites but only if I am using its feature call "Speed Mode". If I switch that off I can't access the said websites.

I also factory reset my phone because a person from XDA told me that unfortunately, there is no compatible Custom ROM with my phone.
I don't know why didn't I just Unroot my phone with Kingo Root(The program I used to root my phone). And I also wanted to start from a clean slate and since I deleted the bloatware using titanium backup.

After rebooting from the factory reset I noticed SuperSU was left behind and it said that "There is no SU binary installed, and SuperSU cannot install it This is a problem!" Why is that? I did my research that if you factory reset your phone with a custom rom it will cause problems(?) Well fortunately I wasn't using a Custom Rom and I checked my phone with root check to check it whether it is rooted, it isn't rooted anymore after the factory reset.

My doubts are:

>What is causing my phone from accessing these websites(And probably more)
>Is it a virus?
>Did I touch something with the system that made it faulty?
>I was kind of playing around with ROM Installer with the bootloader thing because I thought it would change the boot animation of my phone to something else.
>Is it okay if I root my phone again and see whether the SuperSU issue is fixed and the browsing thing fixed.

My Huawei Y220-U10 is working a smooth as new right now. Actually a bit faster than when I got it fresh because I uninstalled some bloatware when it was still rooted. My real concern is the connectivity issue and the SuperSU issue.

Hope to hear from you guys asap,

I found this guide about factory reset for your phone, hope it is helpful.
As for the apps you are having trouble with, suggest deleting, doing a fresh install, and rebooting.
Not likely a virus.
Yes, if you root again you should regain superuser access... please note that superuser works on some devices and super su works on others.
As a reminder, we are happy to help when we can, as best we can- we are not here for troubleshooting issues.
Good luck !!
