Exclamation [Q] Updated to 4.4.2. and tried to root again. Need some help!

I have updated to Kit Kat since I was rooted before (4.3). I have successfully done it, but now I can't install CWM recovery using ODIN because whenever I do it, the boot logo will at first show the red & yellow text and then it will reboot into the normal boot logo. Is there anyway to prevent this and actually access the recovery in order to install SuperSU from CWM?

You'll need to reinstall a version a cwm or twrp made for the kk bootloader via odin first. The older versions are no longer compatible.

I've downloaded the KK version of CWM and still no luck!
It still puts me into the normal boot logo.

Are you flashing with odin? Some of the in-os recovery installer apps are broken with kk

Yes, I am! I'm using Odin 3 V1.85. I used that same Odin version to install Kit Kat.

EDIT: So, I've managed to have CWM recovery but EVERYTIME I install the SuperSU zip, it says it downloaded and when it boots, it is not rooted? Should I factory reset?
