I'm stuck. I can't get root back after update to 4.3 - Tried everything
Right guys, usually I'm quite good a figuring these things out myself but this one has me stuck. I've tried loads of suggestions and I'm sure I'm doing something wrong somewhere.
Basically I've just flashed SlimBean, the Android 4.3 version. When I opened SU it says that there is no SU binary installed and that it can't install them. I researched that error message and I have tried the following.
Re-Root using Odin and CF Autroot. The process worked but I still don't have root access. (I checked that I have root enabled in the developer options)
I read that I need to flash SU v1.51 but I now don't have a custom recovery so can't flash the ZIP. I tried using ROM manager which won't work because I don't have Root access.
I decided that I need to flash a custom recovery so I downloaded one from TeamWin (the TAR/MD5 version for Odin) and tried to flash it with Odin. Unfortunately Odin detects my phone, starts file analysis, then crashes. I decided to try flashing it using Goo Manager. This said that it had worked but when I rebooted I still get the stock Android recovery
I tried to flash a CWM recovery using Odin but again it crashes. I was using Odin v3.07 but I downloaded v3.09 and it still doesn't work.
So I HAVE
done some searching and tried to resolve myself but I'm stuck now. I could be missing something simple. Any ideas people?
I may not know now but I'll find out...
