SGS4 4.4.2 firmware vs SuperSU v1.89

So a few hours ago I was informed there was a Android 4.4 KitKat leak for the Samsung Galaxy S4. Unfortunately they changed some stuff around and SuperSU stopped working.

So I hacked together a minor update to SuperSU to make it work again: v1.89. 

The custom recovery flashable ZIP can be found at the following link (as always):

http://download.chainfire.eu/supersu

The CF-Auto-Root has also been updated with this new version of SuperSU, and can be found here:

http://download.chainfire.eu/316/CF-Root/CF-Auto-Root/CF-Auto-Root-jflte-jfltexx-gti9505.zip

As always, discussion in the XDA thread here:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1538053

I'm not sure yet whether this version will hit the Play Store or not. The only change is Samsung 4.4 compatibility, and there's only one leaked ROM out for that at this time. This update triggers a binary update, and there's always some people losing root in that process, so I'm not sure I'll go there until some more ROMs with this turn up, or I have another reason to update. (Subject to change on my whim, of course)

Did they intentionally break it? If so that answers why there was a leak...trying to break root and seeing what you would do.

Hey man, just wondering if the old cf-autoroot will work for the note 3 n9005 or will we need to wait for a new one?
 
Now waiting for Note 3 Official 4.4.2 ROM root. :D
 
Ok. In my note 3  with a Jedi v5 your app keeps updating (along with Greenefy), wont stay as a system app and reverts to 1.80, otherwise, app. keeps doing it's thing and all works.  In my s4, with  4.4.2 (Danvdh) 1.86 stays and has stayed as system app.

I can't install1.89 at the latest I9505XXUFNA5_I9505OXAFNA5_I9505XXUFNA5_OXA.zip... how do I install a zip file anyway...thanks
 
+Ad van Rooij You flash the superSU zip in recovery. And if that's a stock firmware leak and you're flashing a different kernel chase flash the kernel with SU
 
Hi Ano, I did just that and I got 1.89 back on my S4. Thank you. Ad.
 
Of course Stefan, how could I forget that!. Ad.
 
Hmmm I have in FNA5 (leaked 4.4.2) Footer Wrong, Signature failed etc etc.
 
chainfires cf autoroot gti jftlexx 1.89  and Updated superSU 1.91 all worked perfect on my FNA5. 
 
+Michael Pullen My first question was to be whether you had checked the forums for an updated Doomlord exploit for the Xperia Z. Now, I'm inclined to ask if you took the OTA for 4.3?
 
+Michael Pullen Take it you live Statesside and TMo is your oppressor lol I went thru that ordeal. Well, never stuck with the phone long enough for 4.3 but it was new, sparse development and the TMo variant was the only unlockable bootloader. Sony would even give you the key to unlock your TA partition upon request, which you'd flash thru Emma, Sony's flashtool. Hoping I'm wrong about you being with TMob and that you get root again soon. If you don't have the option to unlock, maybe someone else knows the formula. Tip: Troll, read, troll, read the forums! Boundless suggestions there. Peace
 
+Michael Pullen For unlocking, you must use Emma, different from the exploit version. You can gain root after unlocking
 
Looks like there's a leaked 4.4.2 build for the AT&T S4 (i337) that could use some root love.
Designgears just posted it up on XDA.

 
No luck rooting 4.4.2 on the i337. I ditched it for a T-Mobile Note 3.
