Hi first time I am having a problem of not able to flash custom rom via recovery CWM, here's the problem, I am using Philz recovery whenever I flash zip, the process of flashing went ok, but when all done flashing I press Reboot System Now, recovery takes me to screen that give me a message Root Access is Missing - Root device, then YES -- Root Device (/system/xbin/su) I click YES..then reboot when to Samsung GS4 splash screen then just black afterward instead of seeing boot animation..and after 1 minute when back to recovery..that's it..I know I already double check that I have root access also using root checker everything is ok, I even flash stock firmware through odin no problem and re-root but still doesn't help..do you think I have a problem in /system/xbin/su folder..please help how to fix this..thank you soo much..

Well it's a rare case but if possible put stock again reset the device from inside and do cf root and philz recovery all be well
There must be some bad system file or app causing this

Hi there mate , If you already have root or any recovery suddenly ask you "You want too change/install root/recovery" you choose no cuz u dont wanna loose ur root after.

same problem in galaxy grand
Bro! I am currently on cm11 on i9082

I flashed it using cwm 6.0.4.5
Now I want to flash another custom ROM.
When installing custom ROM I press at "reboot system now"
It shows error:

"root access missing,root device?"
No...
Yes(root device)...


When I press any one of above then device get stucked at start screen.


The root checker app shows...

You device has root access...etc

Please solve the issue...
