    Default Metro PCS F3/Motochopper issue

    I tried to root my F3 using Motochopper and it appeared to have gone well. I have the SU app (# icon) in my drawer however I get an error message "The superuser binary (su) must be updated" I'm offered two update options, neither of which work. I try to reinstall and get:

    [+] This may take a few minutes.
    [-] Failure.[*] Cleaning up...[*] Exploit complete. Press enter to reboot and exit.
    The phone is unlocked, fwiw. I'm new to Android and am dead out of ideas. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks!

    Sorry no one can think of an answer. There's the #android chat room on irc on Freenode, though forums are generally better. Have you tried the XDA developers forums?

    When given the option to update. One tells you to update with TWRP/CWM. You need to have root access turned on in developer options within your settings. Set it to apps and adb.
    Then it will reboot into recovery and update from there
