So I updated to stock 4.3(I747M) via Odin, then flashed TWRP with Odin, then Flashed a 4.4 ROM with TWRP.

The Super SU app is failing to update the binary. And it's not giving root access to apps. Does this have anything to do with the MK5 bootloader?

I can't seem to find a fix? If someone could point me in the right direction, that'd be great.

Thanks!

Try flashing a another ROM such a Validus or CM11 as ROMs are pre-rooted.

Also, I prefer Philz Touch over TWRP. Maybe the recovery program makes a difference?

I did this procedure with the same bootloader on a Koodo phone, no problem. I I rooted and installed TWRP 2.6.3.1 and then I flashed Quantum ROM. Which ROM did you flash? (Oh, I see now you tried OmniRom.) Only difference with how I did it is I had already taken the stock OTA from Koodo.

Yeah I bricked my phone messing with bootloaders...used an SD boot image to get to download mode and odined stock 4.3. Odined twrp. Twrp flashed omni's latest build. Does omni not come prerooted? That doesn't make much sense. I'll try another ROM.

It should also be noted I tried rooting stock 4.3 but it really didn't like that at all.

Weird that you don't have root. I have Validus and apps like root explorer ask for root access which I can grant.

Maybe the 4.3 bootloader is causing a problem?

Yeah, this whole thing is weird. I had the 4.3 bootloader (rooted at end of Dec 2013) and didn't have an issue. I went to Quantum ROM FWIW. Have you tried a full wipe (system, cache, dalvik, data) with a clean flash of the ROM?
