You can read thread on ROMs that worked with safestrap and see what was said there for Google Edition Rom
I do recall that there were two Google Edition ROMs that were reported to work on Safestrap, actually. Chances are they were still using the stock kernel though, so since A.) The OP is probably on a newer kernel than those, and B.) The newest "GE" ROMs on 4.3 use an AOSP kernel, unfortunately we're gonna have to wait juuuust a bit longer.
I know how you feel. TouchWiz has to go.
But hey, on the bright side, we can at least have HyperDrive RLS11 on our MJ7 phones for the time being!
