Hello, just flashed omni and its really great, I found out that my device is not Rooted, (it was but after the format probably canceled(?))
Anyway, is it normal? And there is anyway to root without a PC and will it mess the system?
Thanks!

I think its a bug in omnirom. Happened to me as well when i updated omnirom. You will just have to root it again.

You can always enable Backup (or Survival mode) in Super SU, so you never lose root, even after a ful system wipe. That way, you'll always see the message below once you reboot from recovery after wipe:

Code:
Root access may be lost. Fix root? (Y/N)

You can also simply put flashable SuperSU package (the one you flash via recovery) into "Flash After Update" folder.
Then it will auto flash each time you update rom. You can also put there other zips like custom kernel.
It is a very useful OmniRom function

When you open SuperSu for the first time (once you have installed it), it asks you to install a script to survive over the flashes. There's nothing else needed. You'll be rooted always, even if you flash any update. At least that works for me..

Greetings!
