Default Help rooting after following XDA video

I followed the XDA rooting video for my HTC M7 (4.4.2). Nothing showed errors and everything went well until I used a root check app. They reported I wasn't rooted.
I tried weaksauce but it reported I was rooted.
I went ahead and installed xposed framework. Tried to update and it said I wasn't rooted.

I unlocked my bootloader.
I flashed cwm.
I put the su 3.1.2 zip on my phone and went into cwm and installed from the zip file. No errors etc.
Restarted my phone and SU app is there.

But I don't have any root. Tried pressing the build number in phone settings to unlock developer settings - there's nothing mentioning root in there like one site said there would be.

Now I am stuck.... can someone help please?
