Is your bootloader unlocked? If not, then as I understand things with SafeStrap, you have to use a Samsung-based ROM as you can only change the ROM and not the kernel. Trying to install CM11 will not install the CM-based kernel, so it won't boot. If your bootloader is unlocked, you shouldn't be using SafeStrap as it's only a workaround for those of us who can't unlock our bootloaders.
