    Can anyone help me out? I'm pretty sure I've successfully rooted my phone (I have the Superuser app) but when I open it I get a message saying

    "The Superuser binary (su) must be updated. Please choose an installation method"

    and upon clicking install or recovery install I receive a message saying

    "There was an error installing Superuser. Please send a log of the error to the developer" with just an "OK" button beneath it.

    It's keeping me from giving root access to my Titanium Backup and hindering me from going any further through this root/ROM process

    Can someone help me out?

    You cannot root your phone anymore. The bootloader has been locked in 4.4.2 ND8.

    No it has not! The bootloader is not locked. Stop posting this everywhere. Only the Verizon s3 has a locked bootloader. Sprint s3 is simple to root
