Angry [Q] SuperUser MOD on KitKat 4.4.2

So, I tried doing SuperUser mod for my phone to use this theme but it doesn't seem to be working, I followed DavidMKD's guide, tried using one from a custom rom and Serajr Xposed module but doesn't seem to work. Is there any other file that has to be modified in the new Android KitKat to get it working?
Xperia PLAY (SO-01D) -> Xperia ZL

Unlocked Bootloader: Yes | Rooted: Yes
Rom: 10.5.A.0.230 (Hand made custom)
Kernel: Custom

Did you activate the superuser mode in Serajr's Xposed module?

Did you try to put it onto system - apps and changed permission?
