I installed the KK ROM wit the TOT method and then rooted the phone and installed the CWM recovery as an apk. Now when I go into SU, it says I am not rooted. I tried 2 methods to root but unsuccessful. It boots into CWM recovery and then nothing. Do I need to reinstall the OS with the TOT method again? Any ideas?
This method works perfectly: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...68&postcount=1
After root, use this to get the correct recovery: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...05&postcount=1
Once the phone boots into the UI, use Freegee to install the latest recovery.
Ok I figured out how to get root back on my phone! Yay!
Run the same F240 root tool as usual, it will reboot phone into CWM recovery but you can't choose "apply update from ADB" so instead pick INSTALL ZIP, then choose INSTALL ZIP FROM SIDELOAD. Press any key on computer to load root files then at next step in CWM choose GO BACK, then choose REBOOT SYSTEM NOW. At next step in CWM will ask "Rom may flash stock recovery on boot. F1 This can not be undone." here I choose NO. Phone will reboot and root is restored. I think before I was scared and chose YES on this step and that's what lost my root.
Root Check Basic and SuperSU both show I am rooted and back to okay.
I used that CWM 22.214.171.124 recovery to install a custom recovery only. Once it flashes the recovery, reboot the phone. Answer No to the disclaimer in recovery and let the phone boot into kitkat. Then I used Freegee to install it's latest version of CWM. Ignore the warning if you get one in Freegee. It will install the newer recovery.
