But I still had supersu app installed open it up and checked settings and it worked and I downloaded a root checker app and sure enough I still had root access. But it isn't all good the software is buggy some apps don't work and it doesn't show the app picture it just shows and orange box. but anyway I was able to pull the boot and recovery file from es file explorer and here they are.
thanks for uploading your recovery
you saved my phone - i killed my recovery before
maybe we can make a use of 'Bump!' when they teach the community how to create recoverys like they have (TWPR recovery with locked bootloader) http://www.xda-developers.com/androi...er-workaround/
