Default Can't root after upgrading to KitKat

When I try to flash CF-Auto-Root, my phone goes into a recovery boot loop and It just says:

"Kernel Is Not Seandroid Enforcing
Set Warranty Bit: Kernel"

Then it reboots, and goes to that page again, and so on. I reflashed stock 4.4 and tried rooting again, but with no success.
Any help please would be appreciated!

If it helps, my phone is a Rogers Canadian Variant SM-900W8.

For anyone who has this issue, I found a solution. In the CF-Auto-Root thread, download and flash the "CF-Auto-Root-hlte-hltexx-smn9005.zip" instead of the one made for your carrier as the stock recovery image in that one is actually updated for 4.4. It worked flawlessly for my phone.
