    Use root checker or terminal and see if you still have root. Also check to see that SU is installed. You may have just inadvertently deleted su.

    I still have superuser. Haven't touched it. Used terminal but man I can't figure that damn thing out. I'll try again. Lol. Root checker just loads forever saying my system is running very slow....

    In terminal emulator type "su" and if you get "#" you're good to go. Also try updating your binary in the "SU" app.

    Just give me blanks when I type in "su"... Ran that on superuser twice before you suggested it and tried twice again. Each time it downloads updated binary but it can't gain root access.....

    Okay so I did that, and ran again and the two screen shots are attached. ran poot with same result as before and ran root checker on poot... Hopefully that'll tell you something? Also 3Rd screen shot is what happens when I run update on superuser... Bah. Weirdness. :-(

    If poot ran just fine initially, and you have Sleipnir installed, you should be fine. Regardless, you may wish to re-download poot and Ministro II (uninstall it, then run poot, and it will prompt you to re-install the Ministro II binaries - accept this, and let the Ministro II binaries download and install again. Then run Poot again). In recovery (CWM) wipe the /cache and dalvik-cache. You need to download Superuser (not SuperSU) from the Google Play store, and install it. In Superuser, update the binary (or at least try to). Then download and install SuperSU, and tell it to update the superuser binary. You should be good to go after this.

    So, installing superSU did the trick! I needed the root access to get Barnacle wifi tether to work. Everything is back to normal! Thank God!!! Hopefully this solves the random reboots as well.
