Sprint GS3 running 4.4.2 wont root, recently posted thread about flashing back to stock after soft brick, i dont know if that would mean anything.

Here is the link to that other thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/gala...flash-t2860559

This is the tar i flashed to the phone http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2738533

when i flash cf auto root it passes, but it flashes in like 15 seconds, and once booted, says unfortunately, superSU has stopped, and when i open super user it does the same thing.
