They must have just posted it. I checked a little earlier and it wasn't there.

The RDF updates? These are files that are posted when a new release is being tested for a possible release in the (near) future. The file also provides details about the release. Monitoring the RDF updates is just a little way to see when test releases are being built to speculate on an upcoming update.

You can also just try the Auto Root again too.

I picked up a bad ESN Sport to play with so I don't fry mine Anywho, I flashed custom recovery to it (not running NK2, but previous software), and see no option to allow root fix. This Sport is on the version the CF-auto root is made for, and I previously rooted and unrooted before wanting to try custom recovery method.

I know I can obviously just run CF again and then flash recovery, but I'd like to know this method just in case CF doesn't work on NK2. Thanks!!

You will only see it when going thru the reboot menu option from the recovery (if it's written into the image). Most CWM-based recoveries have a "check for root" provision cooked in. It will prompt you with something like "fix root (/system/xbin/su)" with a Yes or No option. This actually will perform the initial rooting for many/most devices on which you can get a custom recovery installed. After this, just boot into the OS and install a Superuser handler (SuperSU, Superuser, etc) and update the binary.

My Chinese custom recovery had this built and it made rooting this take only about 5 min.

No luck with custom recovery to check/ root, but the previous CF Auto root still works on NK4.
