I did try using an old CF-Autoroot that I had, that didn't work either.

I then downloaded it from the CF-Auto-Root Repository site, and viola. Worked like a charm.

I was on MK2, rooted. I had to flash back to MK2 stock, using the file supplied within a tread, (it ain't hard to find), cleared Google Framework and plugged in to charge, checked for Samsung Update. Update to 4.4.2 installed. Had a brief problem when after rebooting and upgrading apps, my screen remained black. I knew it was doing something though because I have pushbullet installed, and was getting the notifications on my PC screen. But a reboot fixed the black screen. I then tried the first two root attempts mentioned above. Then the one from the Repository. Now I'm good to go.
This worked for me too. Downloaded CF Autoroot from Repository and it worked.
