Default No root? Wtf?

I have used some application they need root. But some of them didn't work well. For example: GMD speed time, slash game buster and root checker said I'm not rooted. But it's false. I have rooted 4.0.3 than upgraded to jb than rooted again than unlocked the bootloader than flashed CM 10.2. What is the problem with these apps? Are they just simply not compatible with? Is there anyway to use these?

Run Root Checker to make sure that root access is enabled.

I m on cm 10.2 and root checker said I m rooted. When you run root checker, does the ask for root confirmation box appears? If not, check super user setting. May be it is auto denying the requests.

No it don't ask for root. I havi modified the settings to popup - nothing changed when its on auto enable - still says no root but for example in terminal I write su root it works fine.
The apps below are working great

Maybe you should try another root app like SuperSU...

try setting superuser to both apps & adb
To install custom roms on O4x:

1. upgrade to jb
2. root
3. unlock bootloader
4. flash custom recovery (cwm)
5. flash roms
6. if you encounter any issues, search, they've been answered already.

Got issues with RIL/IMEI/BASEBAND on custom 4.2, 4.3 or 4.4 ROMs on p880? Click me for possible solution!

But CM has pre-installed superuser in options. I have installed supersu already but it had a fail with updating su binary
