The CF-Auto-Root tool is developed by Chainfire to be an alternate method of gaining rooting privileges over the operating system that doesn’t require you to have a custom recovery installed before you flash it. It ends up giving you the same SuperSU program that you flash from a custom recovery image that allows you to install the same amount of apps.
