Default Very weird problem Please help

A good friend asked me to root his note 3, he was on mj5 at the time, everything worked like a charm using vroot. Now he wants to update to kitkat so i downloaded the rom file and odin files from another thread thinking it would be easy,i looked at his build and fimware and its nb4 now but still android version 4.3 so i tried to install safestrap says it installs but wont boot into it so i backed everything up using titanium and factory wiped it from the actual recovery still no luck how can i update this thing
