    This fixed the SuperSU Crash for me (using 4.4.2)
    1) Download TWRP (make sure you get the right build for your tab, N5100, N5110, etc)
    2) Power Off
    3) Boot to download mode (Power+Vol Down+Home), then press Vol Up
    4) Start Odin (I used 3.09)
    5) Load TWRP into the Odin’s AP slot (don’t unzip TWRP)
    6) Connect the tablet and wait for connection in Odin
    7) Leave default settings, click Start, and wait for reboot
