Default [Q] loading roms

So I have a att gs5 with towel root safestrap installed. Previously I installed a custom rom that worked. The next one that I installed failed so I had to load the stock rom back onto my device using odin. Since then after a fresh install of root and safestrap every time I try to install a rom or any zip using safestrap it fails. I am so new to this coming from iPhone any advice would be sweet.

Thanks

JM

Hmmm, I didn't have that problem after running Odin and re-rooting my phone...but then again I ran towel room and Super-su a couple times before it grabbed.

Run towel root. Then download Super-SU , then install SS. If upon reboot you see the SS splash screen. Then your all good. I did however download titanium backup and freeze Knox manually because Super-su kept failing. But now my Knox count is 0x0 and I'm filly rooted and have no problems

I am rooted and have safestrap installed with no issues. My only problem is that if I try to install any of the custom Roms they show failed. That also goes for any zip that I am trying to install
