I stupidly did not flash St along with the multi window version and gapps. Now I can't get SU to work from the playstore. It says it needs to update binary but fails when it tries. I assume I need to flash the SU zip from my twrp recovery?

Anyone know how to get into recovery without root access? I was using a app that only works with root.

Yep I can get into recovery. For some reason trip wasn't able to install the latest supersu zip. Said it couldn't open it. So I'll try an older zip tonight.

I guess I still have root but I don't have root access due to lack of super user installed?

One thing I'm wondering. Is really flashing supersu through twrp sufficient to gain root? I've only hooked up my devices to run batch scripts in order to gain root so the idea of gaining root merely through flashing a zip is new to me.

TWRP should also warn you when you reboot TWRP after flashing a ROM without SuperSU...

Flashing the root update.zip will gain root.... TWRP/adb/fastboot is a lot easier than running batch scripts that use exploits (unless you are stock without TWRP, and you need exploit like Towelroot to intially root)

Yep I got it straightened out. Used a slightly older Supersu zip and it worked great.
