I have not yet updated to 4.4.4 because I did not want to lose the capabilities of Safestrap. Your solution to that dilemma looks promising. But before I do I have a question... I am not being a smartass, I just want to be certain I understand what you have accomplished... You are now running 4.4.4, NJ5, rooted and with Safestrap using the above steps, is that correct? Thanks.

If you installed SafeStrap correctly you will see this screen after you install NC2 kernel



You need to verify that you have busy box installed, safestrap does not tell you if it installed correctly, so download busybox from playstore or from link in OP. safestrap can be installed while your running NJ5, I've done it a hundred times testing safestrap for, @muniz_ri , @hsbadr, @@RErick and Surge1223

yes I am running NJ5 4.4.4 with most Note4 apps, so I have to constantly reboot into recovery to try note 4 apps to test .

This is not something NEW, this is the same steps we had to do when the KitKat OTA came out, before @Hashcode fixed SafeStrap for kitKat.

I had safestrap install prior to the update so I know what the splash screen looks like lol.[emoji1] I have busybox pro but it wasn't installed. So I reinstalled it and now I will see what happens. Thanks for doing this. Will report back!

Carl. I did the same thing you're doing and my phone faints after flashing the NC2 kernel. Just dies to a black screen and never comes back on.

if you did not see the SafeStrap recovery screen then your safetrap recovery is not installed any more for what ever reason. Install Busy Box then Install SafeStrap app and reinstall recovery, You also should get SuperSU prop asking to give BusyBox and SafeStrap permision.
