Hey guys, so I finally decided to switch from the great ColorOS to CyanogenMod as I'd heard there was CM11 nightlies available. So I used the normal flashing method and I'm now running CM10.2 which is great. Only issue is I don't have root access. I've tried installing OppoOwn apk but to no avail. I read that root is already included in CM0.2 and you simply need to enable it in the developer options however I have no root management settings in there. Any ideas why? Other phones seem to. Any advice would be appreciated.
With stock recovery you won't be able to flash SuperSU.
However you should be installing TWRP before rooting anyway. Reboot your phone and hold volume+ on reboot. This will put you into Fastboot. Connect to your computer and follow the instructions listed on the TWRP website HERE.
After rebooting into TWRP, then you can flash SuperSU.
