Yeah, i know how to do all that stuff. was just looking for a quick way while at work. haha. i investigated it and found the "fix" on my own. BTW, the part I posted in here isn't listed in that thread, either. Maybe his SuperSU.zip was already preconfigured to bypass developer settings, but the step isn't actually listed.

Ok.... I as well as many others have rooted our phones with that method and I did not have to do any of the stuff you mentioned. Probably because the instructions on that page get it done the right way from the start. Its ok both of us are rooted and you helped someone out

Not a fan of toolkits and to be honest its just a driver ms-dos window and some commands at work or not its still simple.
