Default flashed several times but still unable to root

hi guys,

I'm a complete noob to all this but i have read through the q and a section and the noob guide to rooting.

I am running 4.3 on a 19305 and attempted to flash with odin 3.09.

i first tried flashing with CF-Auto-Root-m3-m3zh-gti9305.tar

and later recovery-cwmtouch-

both times ive got the pass message on odin but when i check root status with root checker it says no access.

since i tried to flash i now get what i think are Knox alerts telling me its blocking things that are trying to access root or something.
i've tried copying supersu on to my sd card and installing from there and that hasn't helped.

If i put my phone in to download mode now this is what i see,

Odin mode
Product name GT-19305
Custom Binary Download: yes (6 count)
Current Binary: custom
Knox warranty void: 1

Can anyone tell me what to try next
thanks guys

When you flash cf auto root and you go to Play Store, do you see un update available of SuperSu? If yes, update and open SuperSu app to disable Knox.
Please click the "THANKS" buttom if I helped you...but if I helped a lot, at least you could buy me a beer!!! Click the "DONATE" button

Sign up for COPY for 15Gb of free lifetime space! Use this LINK and get an extra 5GB bonus! Thats 20Gb for you!

Also join DROPBOX. Follow this LINK and DROPBOX will give us both 500Mb of bonus space. Total 2.5Gb for you!

Once you have flashed CF-Auto-Root-m3-m3zh-gti9305.tar re-boot.

Then download SU from the Google Play and install then reboot again, Root should then be ready...

I went to supersu in the play store and it only gave me the option to open it.
I tried un uninstalling the updates and re installing and rebooting.
I'm still getting this though

I booted in to recovery mode and installed the supersu zip file and then rebooted.
Loaded up supersu and this time it worked. It asked if I wanted to uninstall knox which I did.
I checked with root checker and I now have root'
