    I unrooted my device by flashing the sprint stock rom and I tried rooting with the autoroot...it would go through recovery and when it reboots su is not installed and it isn't rooted. I have done this with the same cf autoautoroot and it worked fine. Also when I flashed the latest cwm it would say I can't mount sdcard, cache, etc. I need help rooting the phone as well as getting cwm to work because I am now stuck in sprint stock

    You can use Odin to flash back to stock. Look for forum on here virgin mobile and it will show you how to un root back to stock. New rom is coming very soon.

    i found how to root it and did it step by step like i did before when i rooted my phone and it still wont root. cf auto root gave me no errors but when rebooted su is not installed and it isn't rooted. i tried to root through cwm installing a zip but i get "installation aborted" (bad) with many different files that seemed to work for others

    If memory serves correctly - cfautoroot works via and exploit - one that has been fixed on the newest phones.

    So you have CWM or TWRP installed?

    If so just place the Temp Epic Root from recovery on the phone, reboot to recovery, flash the zip file.


    Temp Epic Root from recovery

    Flash from CWM or TWRP Recovery - I prefer TWRP now.
