Default Issue/Question about Root Permissions

Hey all,

I was sent a replacement phone from Assurion. I rooted with Saferoot and flashed a TWRP custom recovery. Now, every time I boot into recovery, when I try to boot out, I get a message that says:

"Root Permissions appear to be lost" swipe to fix.

Swiping fixes it until i do it again.

also, when I boot into recovery, Id get a small blue writing atop the screen stating "recovery".

Now, Im getting writing under that in Red and under that in yellow as well. related?

Can anyone help?

Im happy to donate.

It has to do, I believe, with your current root method versus the root method the rom you're flashing uses.
