    Default Lost root access

    Have been running GPE 4.4 on my DE with root access for a while now. Even got the 4.4.2 update automatically. But somewhere along the way, root access disappeared.

    Has this happened to you guys? Not sure how to get it back. Not running TWRP or anything like that. I've got S-Off.

    I believe OTA updates remove root. Did you still have root after the update or did you notice it was gone right after?

    If you want, you could install something like CyanogenMod, updates come OTA, install automatically, keep your root and best of all, they don't wipe your phone.

    Not really. Just wanted to stick with stock Android. I'll look at it again. I think it did happen after the OTA update. Just hadn't looked at it in a while.

    You need to reinstall a custom recovery and flash a stock rooted rom or flash superuser and busybox
