I believe you answering YES to be the reason you are losing root.

Nice one Hawker! You're on the ball today.
So as to avoid premature ajaculimication, this time I didn't want to celebrate without double checking everything and testing it properly!!!!!!!! But I can say right now i'm fully rooted with DjeMBey ROM MK8 CWM UltraSlim, Through Philz recovery.
I've done a full Nandroid, Titanium & efs backup. Man this ROM really is super light and efficient. Battery life is fantastic so far.
You hit the nail on the head with me clicking yes before exiting recovery. It was this which caused the whole problem. But in a way i'm glad I did make that mistake. I've learnt so much more about how it all works.
Thank you again for all your help. It is hugely appreciated. Now i've to figure out all the ins and outs of customizing the ROM. Can of worms here I come!!
