Using the Play Store method, the binary genuinely does not get updated, which may lead people to think there's a problem with something other than the app. But when I used the flashable zip I still had the prompt to update the binary appear, despite installing the binary in the correct location (/system/xbin). With both installs, the binary still functioned, meaning it was still possible to grant root privileges to apps. Management though wasn't possible as that requires the APK.
Some users of later versions of Android are also have trouble, but on my tablet running ICS I had no problem with upgrading via the Play Store and converting to a system app. I'm sure Chainfire will get this fixed, and when he does I'll let everyone know.
Q: Can someone suggest a link I can follow that will walk me through the root process for this phone?
A: Simple answer is no. Do your homework. No spoonfeeding here. Check the stickies and the search engine. You'll find it soon enough.
