    Has anyone else experienced the problem of losing root access on nexus 7 after flashing? I'm running smooth rom 4.4 and anytime I try to flash something or even enter recover and just reboot I lose root privileges and have to restore back up?

    Any ROM you're flashing should be rooted. Make sure you are wiping fully before flashing any new ROM. Steps should be:
    Wipe data/factory reset
    Wipe system
    Wipe cache and dalvik cache
    Flash ROM and GApps
    Reboot.

    I figured out the problem. It was superuser the whole time. I uninstalled it and reinstalled it from play store and got root access back. Weird how this happened.
