Default root method for 4.4.2

i attempted to root my gs3 4 times using the method on xda, superuser icon displays but force closes incessantly and root checker confirms i wasnt successful, it must be the kitkat update because im following the instructions to the letter, any ideas on a working root method for kitkat ?

You are on the right track. Once you root supersu icon should appear (if using cfsu). Then go to your app drawer and drag supersu to top corner to disable. Open any file explorer app and goto /system/data/apps and find superuser.apk and double click. Install. Open supersu and install binary. Reboot and you are golden, should be rooted.
