I have an error/question!
  • I get MD5 mismatch for tr.apk
    Quote:
    • Try running the tool again. Also note, that once geohot updates his app, the MD5 does not match anymore.
    • If geohot updated his app, wait for a new version of Easy Root Tool
    • If you can not wait, find a previous version of tr.apk and place it inside folder /files.
    .
  • error: more than one device or emulator
    Quote:
    • Uninstall BlueStacks.
    .
  • Stuck at Waiting for device
    Quote:
    • Make sure device is connected
    • Make sure USB-debugging is enabled
    • Make sure no Sony PC Companion or other Sony software is running
    • Make sure you have adb drivers installed (Example)
    • Make sure the computer is authorized for connection on the phone (you get a dialog the first time you connect)
    .
  • How to unroot?
    Quote:
    • Flash factory firmware in flashtool. Exclude everything except system. No need to wipe anything.
    .
  • Will I keep root after factory reset?
    Quote:
    • Yes. You 'might' have to reinstall SuperSU though (depending on the installation method).

Did you use the SuperSU from market? Because it's a known issue this SuperSU can not update binary. Use latest one from here: http://download.chainfire.eu/447/Sup...SU-v1.99r4.zip

What do you mean? Did you check with Root check app? What is the output of install.bat?
