I am a little confused as I read thru forums stating instructions for installing cwm/twrp. As I have pretty much gone thru every thread and basically realize i am pretty much stuck with safestrap twiz roms. Not a happy camper. Is there a work around or a thread I have missed?
I have had this schi545 for a week now. Is there light at the end of this tunnel? as I am not a big touchwiz fan due to themeing limitations..

anyone above the first firmware MDK, can only use safestrap and roms running on the TW kernel. I recommend you look into eclipse if you dont like TW. Its aosp themed and feels like it, but runs off the TW kernel.

That is correct. The original MDK bootloader is the only one that could be exploited (through a process called loki) which allowed flashing a custom recovery. VZW locked things down after that and there is no exploit available.
