Default Root lost after flashing OmniRom

Flashed OmniRom 4.4.2 and it works great! Only problem is I have no root access!? SuperSU is installed as a system app but none of my root apps will work and Binary updates fail whether it is the Normal install or TWRP/CWM option. If I choose the latter it just closes the window and does not reboot, and if I use manual RCK after choosing it there is nothing that it does. I don't see anything on how to get root back and I don't want to have to reflash everything all over again

I had the same problem with the 4.3 version of OmniRom. Posted on the dev's forum for the Rom and after about 2 weeks, I still haven't heard anything about a possible fix. Tried to go back to stock and start all over but bricked the whole thing. Thank God for having done Wheelie/NVFlash or this tablet would again be lost until I'm able to buy a new motherboard. As for now for you, until the dev answers either of us, your only option (to have root access and the apps that you use with it) would be to flash a diffferent ROM. Wish I had a better answer for you. I do have one question for you though. What was your opinion of the Google Now Launcher in 4.4 in regards to the 10" tablet screen? I had the 4.4 OmniRom installed on my TF300T very soon after the Rom arrived and frankly, the size of the icons and all was a bit too large for my tastes. Until/unless Google adds a few more functionality options like my favorite launcher Nova (like being able to change the grid size for the desktop), I'm staying away from 4.4 on my TF300T (didn't really see much difference speed-wise and ART actually slowed my tab down so much that I flashed back to 4.3).

Did you download the SuperSU ZIP from the website and flash it using recovery?
