OK. Confused.

Flashed the Odexed stock ROM. Clicked "No" to rooting in TWRP. Rebooted. Back into recovery and flashed SuperSU zip. All OK in TWRP and rebooted system. No superuser, so can't do the next steps.

Any idea? Tried it a couple of times now.

More info. If I install SuperSU nothing happens. If I install SuperUser I get the app installed and it says its root but adb shell wont give me # despite the app saying it had been allowed.

If I then try and switch to SuperSU app and have that take control of root then it says it has failed to do so and reboot.

So thats where I am, Stock Odexed. No root...

Going on from my other post, it sounds like the SuperSU package isn't working on the new .10 build. You could try Koush's Superuser package (HERE) and see how you get on. If that also doesn't work you'll have to either stay on .5 for now if root is important or move to .10 and not root for now

I did use Superuser. Seems to install, app is there and it shows it allowed shell in its log, BUT it doesn't give # in shell at all.

Did you use the flashable ZIP or just the app off the Play Store? The link above is the ZIP

Here's SuperSU 1.97, which was the one I used when I first wrote this guide. Perhaps give this a go?

I used UPDATE-SuperSU-v1.94 and it still worked fine after the .10 update

Ok, can you tell me if this is Ok as I got it working this way.

Flashed stock in TWRP. Didn't reboot. Flashed SuperSU zip. Rebooted and its fine and can get root in shell.

Your guide specifically reboots before flashing SuperSU.

Will this be an issue?

The guide is what worked for me and may not necessarily work for all, although it should. If you didn't reboot and it's working then go for it

Ok cool. I just wondered as you specifically said "No" to rooting with TWRP after install. I know this isn't quite the same. I'll crack on then. Thanks.

Personally, I prefer to flash a package for SU as opposed to using the on in TWRP but it's my preference and, as it's my guide, it's what I posted. If you want to do it the other way then by all means do so - whatever works!
