Used Towel to root device. Confirmed various apps (AdAway, Super Backup, and Xposed Installer) work and I have access to what I need. However, SuperSU will not update binary. I keep getting, "Installation failed ! Please reboot and try again."

The device is currently on NC4. I found the following steps via root instructions for a Note 3 on Jelly Bean:

IF YOU ARE ON NC4 (Official VZW OTA) Follow The Below Instructions

Step- 1 - Root Device with TowelRoot courtesy of geohot

Step- 2 - Install Busybox from play store and install busybox itself

Step- 3 - Install Safestrap 3.75 courtesy of Hashcode

Step- 4 - Boot into Safestrap, Select Stock Slot

Step- 5 - Wipe Data, Use Factory Reset Slider

Step- 6 - Install The Latest BajaROM courtesy of Bajasur

Step- 7 - Reboot into Download mode From Safestrap

Step- 8 - Unzip & Install In ODIN This NC2 Kernel .tar courtesy of Beanstown106

I have all my data either saved to my SD card or backed up via Google. I presume these steps work but I am not familiar with a lot of the terminology. Does anyone have a guide (video guide would be great but at least something for the layperson) that can guide me through the rest of the rooting process?

...someone else reported this.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to properly resolve this?

For those who care...

From computer:
- Go to
- Download the latest version of SuperSU to computer
- Unzip compressed file and saved the output to another location
- Sync all files to device (I saved everything in a folder called "SuperSU." I cannot confirm if all the files are needed)

From device:
- Open My Files and navigate to the folder you just synced
- Open Common folder and click on Superuser.apk
- Confirm update (you will not lose your current granted apps within SuperSU)
- Once update is complete, open SuperSU and update binaries using TWRP (device will restart)
- Once restarted in TWRP, select the option to reboot device (device will restart as normal)
- Once restarted as normal, open SuperSU

You will not be prompted to update binaries and you will have full access to the app. I do not know if this would be any quicker if done directly from the device but this should help anyone who may be stuck in the same loop.

Alliance rom
So whenever I've installed Baja alliance rom Nc4 it won't fully boot. On rom slot 1. Would I still be OK to run this rom and wipe the main rom. Should I right over the main rom?
