Question [Q] Trying to install liquidsmooth to S4

I am sure my answer has been posted before, but i couldn't find what i was looking for after scouring google and XDA for a few days now so my apologies in advance.

I have the ATT I337 s4 with 4.4.2 firmware and am trying to install liquidsmooth V3.2 but obviously its not working. I keep getting an error that states:

"E: signature could not be verified"
"E: whole package signature could not be verified"

And then the phone factory resets itself and reboots.

What I have done: Rooted the phone with towelroot, then installed supersu, disabled knox, and then installed busybox.

Some posts I read said that i need to use safestrap to install liquidsmooth, so i tried that as well, and it says the installation is successful, but the program state never changes to show "installed" and the button to reboot into recovery never gets activated.

I am not sure what I am doing wrong, but I think from what I have read that I need a custom boot loader in order to get the install to work, such as CWM, but then i run into other posts that say:

"NOTE For AT&T/Verizon users with Android 4.3/4.4.2 or higher, you cannot use the LOKI method, you need to use SafeStrap Recovery to install custom ROMs, see How to Install Custom ROMs on AT&T/Verizon Galaxy S4 using SafeStrap instead!"

Im hoping someone can fill in the gaps that I am missing because it is getting annoying having my phone factory reset after every attempt and having to start over again, but its better than a brick lol.

Let me know what you think, and please help get me in the right direction

What firmware version are you on? Go to settings, more, about device and look at the last three characters of your build number.

Nvm, I read your firmware as 4.2.2. You're either on nb1 or nc1. Either case you'll need to use safestrap. See in the general forum index, all things at&t.... It'll have everything you need.

PS, you won't be able to install liquidsmooth on your device. Only touch wiz based roms
