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.
