A couple weeks ago when my phone was running jb I used Odin, the cf auto run file to root my phone and had no problems at all. After the kik Kat update came out I used Odin on my computer and flashed the original firmware so that I could get the update, I knew I would lose root but now when I try to root it my phone goes into a loop. The only thing I could do to fix it was flash a twrp img. file which got it working again. Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong this time around and why it's going into a loop? I would also like to know why you can't write to the external sd card anymore???

I downloaded the cf auto file from this site which was almost double the size of the jb cf file so I figured it had been updated for kk. And yes, then once it restarts it just keeps going into Odin mode over and over until I used a twrp img. I had found that got me out of it. My phone shows even installed supersu but it's not rooted. What file do I use to root it for kk?
