Question [Q] Galaxy S4 Recovery

Hey, I have the ATT S4 rooted with the stock NB1 firmware and safestrap recovery. I'm trying to install a custom rom like Cyanogenmod or something similar, but I've been told that this isn't possible but haven't gotten a good explanation so I don't know if that's right. I was just reading about the LOKI bootloader bypass, and my question is would that allow me to change to a different recovery and put on a different ROM?

You can only use safestrap and touch wiz based roms on your device. See in the general forum, index all things at&t.....

Your bootloader is looked and Loki only works for those on mdb or mdl firmware.
