Default Problems Rooting

I can't seem to root my M8. I had done it before but had to do a factory reset. Since then, I try and flash the root file and root checker still says there is no root. I then tried downloading SuperSU from the play store. I have the SuperSU app on the phone, but I still don't have root access. I'm stumped.

I had this problem on arhd.Try to flash supersu.zip from chainfire's site then flash a custom kernel which disables read/write protection like elementalx.
Don't say thanks hit thanks if I have helped.

Current Device:

S-OFF-Yes
Recovery:TWRP
Kernel:ElementalX
Rom:Android Revolution HD by Mike!

Download rooting tools from here http://android-revolution-hd.blogspo...-site-var.html
Extract and flash the boot.img file using fastboot flash boot boot.img
Then flash the zip Root and Busybox zip file using a custom recovery.
