Lost Root After HyperDrive RLS 16

Hello! The reason why I am posting here is because I don't exactly know what my problem is caused by. Yesterday, I followed Surge's method of updating to 4.4.2 with root on my Verizon Galaxy S4. That was successful, and I soon after decided that I wanted to give HyperDrive RLS 16 a try on the 4.4.2 base. I installed HyperDrive, but when when I boot up the phone, I lost all root access, safestrap, and my WiFi will not turn on. I know how to fix the WiFi issue and its an easy fix with root, but the problem is that I totally lost root. When I open up SuperSu it says that the binaries are not installed, and I cannot install safestrap to even flash the Verizon modules to get wifi working. Any help would be much appreciated, and like I said, I do not know what the problem actually is so I asked it in general questions. Thanks in advance!

Same thing just happened to me.. used Surges NC5 stock root and everything was fine for the past few weeks.. today I decided to try Hyperdrive, first custom ROM on this phone for me and I'm having the same exact issue as the OP.. haven't tested wifi so not sure but I've lost root and of course Safestrap custom recovery. Guess I have to Odin back.. so frustrating.

Just flash the latest SuperSU zip through recovery and you should be rooted again in no time.

I was having the same problem! No root, wireless or SafeStrap. Had to downgrade to MK2 and start over. Finally running the latest HyperDrive with root and SafeStrap but no wireless, even after flashing the NC5 modules
