  1. Sir, uninstall battery master or rename LBEBatteryMaster.apk to LBEBatteryMaster.apk.bak then reboot and my root didnt got lost.
    Idk why root and battery master has conflict. Tested<

  2. I made a few modification of the file to prevent no-root status after restart..
    Ive tested it few times and works fine, after installing KingRoot 5.8.- and restarted still root previliges acquired..
    If anyone want to test it out, im sharing it here.
    (as always, DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK)
    you can flash this via TWRP Beta 1 or stock recovery..
