so i have a rooted at&T galaxy s3 on the latest stock firmware which i guess is 4.3. i tried flashing resurrection rom which was kit kat and it failed. so i restored my back up and the phone would get stuck on the splash screen. so i formated the whole phone and forgot to save my backup to my sdcard. twrp now says that i have no OS installed and also says i am not rooted anymore. im scared and need a little assistance. i just want to get it going.

Just flash the latest TWRP, copy a custom ROM to your phone, boot into TWRP, and flash it.

i bought a micro sc card reader and transfered a superuser zip and an old 4.3 beanstalk rom. it flashed fine last night. i used my phone all day and downloaded the latest 4.3 beanstalk rom and just tried to flash it and it FAILED. This is the second time i had a flash fail. I tried flashing that old beanstalk rom again and it failed too! what the heck???? my battery is a little low.....does twrp have some kind of safety built in where it wont flash if bettery is low?

Did you install the latest CWM? Is the 4.3 Beanstalk based on Kit Kat?

no its not based on kitkat. i flashed an older version of cwm via odin. i figured i could just update it with rom manager. i tried to update cwm to the latest verion and it fails everytime. so...i downloaded root checker from the play store and it says im not rooted. i need to fix this lol

Flash the latest Philz and. Validus as I know that is a rooted ROM. Personally, I don't use ROM manager.

I'm on slimbean 4.3 and I've lost root. I want root back so I can get rid of this ROM. Ive flashed supersu multiple times with cwm..but I still do not have root access.
