Alright folks, I'm losing my mind here...

I recently flashed the ND8 stock and am attempting to get root using the CF auto root. Odin tells me that everything has has finished properly. When I restart the phone the auto-root appears to complete, then the phone restarts. Root checker says no root.

I have tried different cables, usb ports, computers. I have had odin's auto restart checked and unchecked, flashed philz recovery. USB debug is on. Still no root! What am I doing wrong? I'm not a noob, nor am I a dev, but this is the first time in 6 six different phone models that I have failed to get root by following the directions provided by those smarter than me.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

Sorry, but I've never used cf autoroot.
I would:
Flash the latest Philz.
Go into "philz settings" and click "re_root system (supersu)"

If the above doesn't work, search the Web and download update_supersu_. Zip (actual file name will include version #)

Go back into philz and flash the su file.
If SuperSU crashes after attempting to open, go to Google store and "update" SuperSU.

I used cf auto root to root my phone, I had to do it a few times to make it stick.
