So I install towelroot, reboot, then install super user via google play? Correct? Any known issues so far?

towelroot installs superuser and it's an old one.so what I did was install Safestrap and flashed SuperSU through the stock slot and am up to date.

Works good for me. Used the SU update zip on here...
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2777423
Download, open folder, open "common" file, click superuser.apk icon and install. This is good for those who don't want to install SafeStrap.

Towelroot Working
Yes I just did mine and it works. I'm having trouble with Super SU. Message comes up to disable KNOX. It's been trying to disable for 30 minutes. Not sure if there's a newer version of Super SU or maybe AT&T put a tougher version of KNOX in the update but seems to be stuck "disabling".

Update: I went back to home screen then a few minutes later started Super SU, got the prompt to disable KNOX and this time it worked.
