    Default "failed to find currently installed su binary"

    So I noobed my phone with the OTA ZVH update. Everything seems to be working, but I am no longer rooted. Superuser says: binary outdated, tap to update. When it tries to find the currently installed binary path, it says "failed to find currently installed su binary" and "update cannot continue".

    I haven't been able to find anyone using google with this exact problem (after OTA update). Hoping I won't have to revert and follow the rooting ZVH instructions.

    Thanks

    That's exactly what you have to do. Installing ota update deletes /su. From /system. Revert to zvd, flash v9 recovery, flash zvh update.zip, root with adb, flash custom recovery, flash Tom.

    If no longer rooted the su will not work at all phone has to be rooted to get su so yes you will have to revert to get super user working
