Yeah, that was stupid, but where do I go from here? I have a VZW Note 3 and I installed AllianceROM (in the "stock" slot of SafeStrap, after rooting with Towel Root and installing SafeStrap). It was a new (replacement/warranty) Note 3 with 4.4.2 (NC4). When I try to boot, it goes through the normal safestrap boot process, but once it's past that splash screen where you choose to go into SafeStrap or continue booting, it goes to a black screen.

Or does SafeStrap count as a "custom recovery"? In that case, I have no idea what I did wrong. This is the first time I've had issues with custom ROMs after going through a Note 1 and 2, so I'm unsure how to troubleshoot this.

So I just install the stock rom to the "stock" slot on safestrap? Does it need to be the official Verizon stock rom, or can it be just a very basic stock rom from the XDA android development forum?''

Is this an okay ROM to install?

no no restoring the stock rom will remove the safestrap. you might install it again later on.
it is better to have a stock verizon rom if u are carrier locked. if u are unlocked then flash any stock rom you have. It is a download mode device right? means it has download mode?
if that safestrap thing came with your device that is when it was totally stock then yes install stock rom in Stock slot.

Ah okay I understand now. Yes, it is a download mode device. Where can I find the stock ROM, and how do I install it?

Sent from my Xperia SP using XDA Free mobile app

Google it or find your device on xda and look for threads named stock ROMs. Stock firmware. Anything like that. I'm away from my laptop so currently I cant do that for you. Maybe you wait till morning it's 3 30 am here
