AT&T Galaxy S III: No SU binary, can't flash zips in recov

by utahman130 / October 29, 2013 3:57 AM PDT

Android: 4.3.1
AOKP: Build 10/23/2013. D2ATT

I have the newest version of AOKP on my ATT Galaxy SIII running Android 4.3.1. I rooted it with Causal, and flashed the newest version of AOKP on it. Upon booting, the screen was stuck at "Sawgger Activated", so I reset and cleared the cache via recovery mode. It worked, and the device bolted up and I could do everything. When I try to run an app that requires root access, it says my phone hasn't been rooted. I tried to root the phone again, and Causal said it couldn't. It might be a problem with the SU binary, which I downloaded. I put the phone in recovery mode, and it loaded stock recovery. I don't have an external SD card. The only option to apply updates is from external storage. Please help me flash the SU binary so I can gain root access again!

Didn't make a backup, which was really stupid.

I have no gapps and no way to flash any zips on my phone without root access! Please help!

Thank you!

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
