I was told to flash philz recovery through Odin and check the root option. But I don't see that option! So do I need to flash SuperSU through Odin or recovery?? Thanks for the info..

You need to Odin recovery of choice (I recommend philz latest) boot into recovery, and flash the SuperSU zip file, boot phone back into system, open supersu (if it force closes go into play store and update it) do necessary updating and disabling knox and viola you're rooted. Hope I helped.

I did the same thing suggested here and it worked just fine for me. Flashed Philz and then the chainfire root and then got myself the Wicked X rom and Im never going back to stock except for the theme look
