You need a newer version of TWRP to flash 4.4 Rom

Last one is 2.6.3.1

SuperSU says.....There is no binary installed, and super SU cannot install it. this is a problem! if you just upgraded to android 4.3 you need to manually re-root. Any clues on what to do?

It wouldn't matter because you've already tripped the warranty bit.. but that is how you reset the count before 4.3..
