    If I do a factory reset will I lose root?

    If you are using the settings menu or recovery to do the reset, then you shouldn't lose root, but you may need to reinstall superSU (or whatever root manager you were using.)

    Well that got screwed up....Goes to show dont play if you dont know what ur doing. Was in TWRP and accidentally hit that Wipe button which apparently did reset phone. Now Im trying to use the last back up i did a few days ago but it doesn't seem to put phone back to state before reset.
    Let me guess it wont happen after a factory reset....assuming that was considered a factory reset
