Go and download the latest SuperSu flashable zip from Chainfire from here SuperSU Download then flash a custom recovery (Philz, CWM or TWRP) through Odin; before rebooting into the OS you must go into recovery again pressing Power + Vol Up (I think) and flash the SuperSu you downloaded. That should do it.
Welcome to AF tecnosrms
I moved your thread into your device's root subforum and it looks like funky and heat gotcha covered here!!
I hope you get your device up and running
I don't understand what to do, I simply followed step by step instructions on a website to root my phone and it didn't work
Is it possible for you to give me some step by step instructions on what to do please?
Follow the directions above was given, just download the latest supersu and flash it from the custom recovery of your choice and you should be good to go.
Yes, download the zip to the phone and flash from there. There is no limitation as to where it should be stored; you can browse to its location from within recovery. It will flash from internal memory. By SDCard, it means the internal memory. It is the new convention, and the actual removable sdcard is now called external sdcard or extsdcard. So you don't need a micro sdcard, even though it is a good idea to have one.
I am having the same issues with the su binaries. I'm trying to re-root my tmo GN2 after I reverted back to stock for sometime now. I followed your instructions to a "T" and I am showing no clockwork mod recovery or any recovery for that matter installed on my phone. I flashed with Odin, the tar file, waited for a pass, unplugged and tried to reboot into recovery with no success, Can someone please help? I am also running Android Jellybean 4.3 and read that there's problems rooting because of Samsung Knox security, but I haven't gotten that error just yet.
Nevermind. Have to uncheck the auto reboot box in Odin in order to install the whole file.
To be honest, I never encountered any problem with any version of a Chainfire SuperSu.zip package. They always flash in a custom recovery and then update the binaries in the app, if at all required. I usually check for the latest release, which will have the latest binaries included. I never install the apk through the playstore.
