It was the bootloader. When the phone is upgraded to 4.4.2 it's boot loader can't go down from that. So the bootloader from ML2 is incompatible. When I flashed the other three files it worked just fine! Then I applied the patch to get the phone to the latest firmware. It's a .cfg file you rename it to update.zip and put it on the sd card. boot into the stock recovery and install the update. I must admit a few glitches I was having are gone now since upgrading to the latest greatest, and Towelroot made it stupid easy to root.
