Default issues with vroot

I dont think vroot is working but its hard to tell what part of the process isnt working. I followed the directions perfectly. But when i do the vroot part my phone doesn't reboot at all, I figured it said 2 more or less so i just went ahead with it. But then i get some issue with it not being able to disable knox. Tried again and it just seems to freeze up at the vroot part again. I have my phone on debugging. I plug it in allow debugging, and press root. it starts. I get the request to install the app which i allow, and nothing happens. I also installed the drivers. Just flash the nc5 tar file. not sure what is wrong.

Don't use vroot it installs chineseSU. The method this guy posted is unnecessary. Just use towel root

First off, You guys need to understand something, VROOT HAS NEVER BEEN PROVEN TO BE A SAFE ROOT METHOD. That being said, there are proven methods out, by trusted sources, to root. Chainfire and geohot have both released methods to root, pick the one for your device and enjoy.
