[Q] Advice on upgrade from 4.2 (ME7) to 4.4?

I have been reading around here a few hours, but I haven't found exactly what I'm looking for, So I thought I'd ask.

Here is what I have:
Safestrap version:3.65
Baseband Version: I545VRUAME
Kernel: 3.4.0-690088
Build Number: JDQ39.I545VUAME7
Rooted Stock Rom running 4.2.2

I am looking to update to 4.4.x, and be rooted.
Preferable to have CM, but not necessary.
Do need root, for a few of the tweaks/apps I use every day.

I have seen that there are odin files to upgrade to 4.4.3 directly, but it seems cloudy whether or not it can actually be rooted after that.

I like the way safe strap has rom slots, but due to the large size of the roms, I could really only use one at a time any way. (what I am saying is that SS isn't necessary, just what I already know.)

Thank you, so much in advance.

You need to read the stickie in the general forum before you brick your phone... Not sure how you missed it.

Well I followed the instructions in this post (which was stickied) http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2720163
and now all I am getting is "System software not authorized by Verizon Wireless has been found on your phone. Please turn off your phone and go to the nearest Verizon Wireless store for help. "

Tried rebooting into download mode, and into recovery, neither would come up.

Anyone have some advice?

I would post in the forum I linked but I dont have enough posts under my belt to post in that category.

Oh, and in the top left side of the screen in red letters I see Secure Fail: kernel
