Yes i did but doesnt work. I tried factory reset, no also flash the stock boot.img but it ended in bootloop

Your a rooted user flashing back stock boot.img wont solve because there are other supersu files in it. I am not sure why you lost Wifi tough. It maybe due to a bad /persist. I can't be sure. I will try to get Superuser done before Sunday.

He lost because th modified boot image is not proper! We need some more changes & he needs to be on the exact same build of that modified boot image build!

Doesn't work. No wifi. I have the 1643 model.

If you can modify the attached boot image, I can check.


Ok lets try this one !!

    Thank you very much for the detailed tutorial. I'll just list a few things that I encountered during the process, if it helps anyone.

    1) during TWRP flash, the 'flash recovery' command did not do anything the first time (completed, but recovery did not change). I tried the same command again, and this time it worked.

    2) after flashing superSU.zip and rebooting, SuperSU did not show up. I installed it from the play store, and it worked.

    3)Installed the SELinuxModChanger.apk, and tried changing to permissive. Even though SuperSU granted root access, the app failed to gain root privileges. Changed the 'force user' option in SuperSU for the app to ROOT, and it worked.

    4)ES explorer couldn't gain root access no matter what I changed. ("sorry, test failed"). This happens because ES checks for 'su' files in /system/xbin, and our root method is systemless.
    To fix it, I copied all files from /su/bin to /system/xbin and set permissions (using another root explorer, like fx or solid trial).

    5)I had an older version of titanium backup, which couldn't gain root access. Updated to new version, and it worked. Backup and Restore works now.

    It was easy finding solutions for these problems. You just need a search engine :cowboy:

    You can do this without modified boot.img, if you follow the below link. This is especially true when the 1644 doesn't have one and people use wrong boot.img files for it.
    All that needs to be done is to write a ".supersu" file for systemless rooting:
    TWRP -> Advanced -> Terminal -> Type the follow code:
    Code:
    echo "SYSTEMLESS=true" > /data/.supersu
