    Default Problem updating SU binary / installing roms

    Hi everyone,

    I have a rooted phone with jellybean 4.1.1 and I've been trying to install cyanogenmod using rom manager however the app could never flash recovery and said this: "an error occurred while trying to run privileged commands", I read in some places it might have happened because the superuser app wasn't up to date, It was although it had an error updating the binary, I installed superSU and haven't been able to use it either because it also fails installing the binary!

    I have also tried rebooting the phone and entering recovery to install the rom I downloaded before but it also stopped midway through the inspecting of the rom and since installling superSU now I can't even enter recovery anymore. =(

    Has this happened to anyone? am I doomed to have a rooted phone with the stock rom forever? please help... please

    You might try what I did and manually copy SuperSU into your phone's root directory, then use the Cyanogenmod recovery to install it. It may not solve all your problems, but it will get you to the next step.
