Default Issues installing supersu after s-off

I don't normally ask for help usually many others have had the same problems as me and I can learn from their mistakes but this M8 has given me more headaches than any other phone I've ever rooted. I was using a SGS5 until a few weeks ago because my S3 died in its sleep and I didn't do my research before heading to the Verizon store. Once I realized the bootloader wasn't going to be unlocked I traded for the M8 because I can't keep anything stock. After 3-4 hours fighting with firewater I finally broke down and used SunShine to S-off but now I'm having trouble getting SuperSu to install. I am fully S-off and when I open the SuperSu app it says I need to update but it fails every time. While fighting with firewater I tried using Superuser so I just tried that and it fails as well. I really want to try Viper but until I have SuperSu set up I don't want to risk doing anything to it. Any help is appreciated
Edit: Even after SunShine I don't have root until weaksauce kicks in. I think I'm supposed to, huh?

I figure if you wanted to do this you would've done it anyways but going to recommend this anyways. If you would like, the simplest way to do this is by flashing a custom recovery such as TWRP or Philz CWM and using that to flash the SuperSU.zip which will flash both the app and the binaries required to use it.

Link to TWRP 2.7.0.0
PhilZ touch CWM
SuperSU flashable zip & just incase you cant find it, the download link.

& finally just incase you find outside links (even though its official site) shady or unsafe: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2717932

If you're s-offed and unlocked you don't even need to root first, just flash a custom rom after making a nandroid. Every custom rom is already root injected.

Or like previously mentioned, flash a supersu zip and it'll inject the proper binaries.

This worked, not sure why I couldn't figure that out on my own I feel pretty dumb. Thank you for your help.
