Three attempts on a Sprint S4. They continue to fail.

I did not retain the original message.

Should I delete the SuperUser.apk from the phone and attempt again?

I've run 2 Root Checker apps and they both say it isn't rooted. Maybe they are phone specific and not config'd for the S4 yet. Is there another way to check?
