So I thought I followed all steps properly and eventually got to this:

C:\adt-bundle-windows\sdk\platform-tools>fastboot flash recovery C:\android\recovery-clockwork-touch-6.0.2.3-mako.img
sending 'recovery' (7808 KB)...
OKAY [ 0.264s]
writing 'recovery'...
OKAY [ 0.451s]
finished. total time: 0.717s

then I go back to system reboot, yes - fix recovery flash... it reboots, and I'm NOT rooted. The SU app is in the app drawer but it says the binary isn't installed and the root checker app says it isn't rooted too.

What am I missing?

Just use Towelroot. So easy. Install SuperSU, run Towelroot, load SuperSU and you should be good.

can you reply with all the steps you took? from the above it doesn't look like you flashed SU app in recovery.

Hmm weird - Towelroot does work on my phone but it gets completely reset upon reboot?

you have to flash the most recent supersu or it will not work because the binaries would be old. most recent being supersu version 2.02.
