Default Root won't work

I just came from a custom ROM back to stock rom and wanted to root again. I flashed CWM recovery with ODIN en then flashed CWM-SuperSU-v.0.99.zip
When I opened the SuperSU app and clicked on update, it said installation failed. I went to the play store to update. Now it says I'm not even rooted . What am I doing wrong here?

No, you were just installing supersu app (you don't need cwm recovery to do that), but not making root. Supersu is just a tool for root management. Flash cfautoroot with odin and then go to gplay and download supersu.

I flashed SuperSU (so including the binary, not just the app) in CWM recovery. How is that not making root? It should work that way, just apparently not for me.

so I already have CWM recovery, and the CF-auto-root brings the stock recovery. My question was whether I can just flash over it or not

edit: I just flashed over it, and works now

Supersu is just an app to manage root accesses, and binaries can be installed directly oppening supersu after install it from google play or from a zip using cwm (what you did), but first you need to make root. I am 99% sure that cfautoroot backups the actual recovery to restore again after root; if dont you can flash again the cwm after cfauto and you shouldn't lose root.
