Exclamation [Q] accidentally flashed 4.3 rom to kit kat flashed device

So I accidentally flashed a 4.3 rom to a kit kat flashed note 3. I can get into safestrap 3.7.5 but no matter what rom I flash it just goes to a black screen after I install it. I can get into download mode and safestrap. How do I fix this? I've tried flashing the kit kat rom after wiping everything but it still won't work. loads safestrap, hit continue, then black screen.

Help?

Safestrap keeps saying

E: unable to mount '/system'

etc

Sorry, but just to confirm this... My Kitkat was not stock. It was flashed using URDROID ROM method

Go here. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2838117

This will restore your phone to stock KK. You will then be able to root and install the latest SS.
