Default CAN'T ROOT, goes into BootLoop

ok guys, I have successfully been able to root every device I have ever had thanks to the great work and directions of people on this site. Trust me when I say I have searched and searched for the answer to this and I can not find it.

I have a Note 10.1 2014 P605 international version. All I am trying to do is root this device. I would also like Kit Kat 4.2.2 however not required.
At this point, I am able to flash TWRP and can go back and forth from JB and KK, however I for the life of me can't flash any other thing on this device. I have tried multiple downloads of the CF Auto Root, but I get the same thing every time. I go into Odin, process starts, screen flashes, and than goes into boot loop, and stays there until i rerun Odin, and flash stock back on. I have tried to flash a custom reom on this device also but same thing.

I don't care about tripping the KNOX counter, i just want the device rooted, plane and simple. I am starting to think its not the file, but there is a block on the device somewhere and i have missed it. It seems to let me run any stock rom, just nothing else.

I have gotten Supersu but it stops when it gets to the last part and says that i just updated and need to bascly come here for help!

I'm kind of at a loss here. Not sure what to do next. Any ideas? or links that I have missed??

If you only want root, have you tried Towelroot? I was able to root my P605V when no other method worked. The only issue I have (since I have a locked bootloader) is that I can't update my SU binaries in the ROM or via recovery (since it's stock). You likely won't have that issue since you have custom recovery and can just flash.

ok- so after another night of sleep, i was able to get this done - here's what I did -
Reflashed stock rom via ODIN
Flashed TWRP via ODIN
installed SuperSU onto simcard, installed via TWRP
SuperSU opens and tries to shut down KNOX, stalls
I reboot, rerun SuperSU, and again tries to shut down KNOX, but this time it works
I reflash Kit Kat 4.2 and repeat the process and whoop there it is...root access with stock Kit Kat.
Finally!

Hope this helps someone!
