  1. I have problem, because after install supersu and after reboot twrp still turn on and i can’ enter to my desktop. Could you help me?

  2. First, thanks for the great guides Uzair!

    So I was wondering if you could help me out. I had super SU working okay prior to installing custom XenonHD 7.1.2 firmware. After installing Xenon, then installed Gapps, then all my other apps, i noticed I no longer had root, so I flashed SuperSU, (then wiped cache/dalvik after, not sure if I was supposed to, but I recall doing this on previous phones). After that, it killed my cell phones service (sim was not recognized and no IMEI info etc….) After a bit of panic, I decided to factory data reset… that did not help…then I re-flashed custom XenonHD firmware, and I luckily was able to re-obtain cell signal. What did I do wrong and how can I get root without knocking out cell signal again? THanks!
