Can anyone tell me how to either get root again so I can add a custom recovery since my goal is too install the 4.2.2 update or get back to unrooted factory status?
Thanks in advance
You shouldn't need root to add a custom recovery. You can flash a recovery in download mode using Odin on Windows, or Heimdall on Windows/Mac/Linux. If you're interested I can give you some help with installing and using Heimdall.
Bear in mind that flashing files in download mode will void your warranty (there is a counter which tracks how many times you've flashed). Flashing also carries a risk of bricking your device permanently. Once the flash counter is nonzero, your device will be detected as "custom" and you still won't be able to install official updates. But you will be able to flash ROMs in recovery from the xda community.
