The Odin factory image stuff returns everything back to 100% factory, so you shouldn't be rooted if that's all you did.

And since you didn't mention anything else, I suppose that's exactly what we should presume.

Normally when you use that Odin procedure, you are returning to square one - you need to root. Probably with kingo.

As you seem to have figured out, the more research you do, the more likely you are to succeed at stuff like this. At least you were able to recover it.

That being said, KingoApp is definitely the best/easiest way to root this phone.
