One thing to keep in mind if you follow the PRFcreator tool route is that before you flash your device with your pre-rooted image, is that to go into system - Apps and then check for any apps that you have moved to your SD card. Move any apps that you have on the SD card back to Phone Memory before you boot to recovery and start flashing your phone. Once you done, you can move them back if you want to, to free up phone memory.

Don't worry, you have not lost your apps, only downside is when you scroll through all your pages and you see all those "app missing" icons, you have that WTF? moment :D

The reason for this is that after the upgrade, it doesn't see the apps any more when looking at your apps pages as if the SD card is missing. If you go to System - Apps and looking at all your installed apps, you will see they are still then. To fix the issue, simply move them back to phone memory.

...hope my explanation makes sense.

Doesnt work for me :(
Thats my way how to get the prerootet .264.

i flash the .402 and rootet it with easyrootool.
as i am later in twrp i choose my own prerootet .264, build it wit prfcreator, exactly how it should be.
after i have flashed the prerootet, no mater if i wipe cache + dalvik cache, when i want to reboot the system it says:
Root Access is missing/broken. Roo [..%] Time
- No
- Yes - Aplly root (/system/xbin/su)
- No

and no matter if i choose yes or no, after rebooting and updating the apps, there is no supersu or ndr utils to find.

dont know what the problem is :(

Flash the .232 through flashtool then update using zip file and make sure you added the correct SuperSU file and the correct recoveyr and make sure to include Kernel , FOTAkernel , Modem , LTAlabel ,,, then try again

guys, I just went back to 4.4, rooted, then used the recovery to install the 264 zip file, the same message of cillow's appeared to me:
"Root Access is missing/broken. Roo [..%] Time
- No
- Yes - Aplly root (/system/xbin/su)
- No"

When I rebooted the phone was without superUS and when I installed it it said that I didn't have root oO

Anyone knows what happened/what can be used to fix it?

Thanks!

Before installing the XZDR on 4.4 copy/upload the prerooted zip on your phone. After you install the XZDR the phone will reboot; now you can proceed to install the prerooted zip, it will include SuperSU and recovery. The phone reboots to recovery so you can install the SuperSU .zip, but there is no need for that. All we need to install a prerooted .zip is the recovery. SuperSU will be after restarting the phone on the new software.

I did that, like, downgrade > root > install recovery > boot on recovery > install prerooted .264. BUT after restarting, superSU wasn't there and not even the recovery. As I said, before I boot after installed the 264, it showed me the message about root.

Thanks!
