Default [Q] System software not authorized HELP!!!,

I updated from ME7 to MJ7 with success than I flashed philz recovery with the root tools app and got the message

Secure fail: kernel

" 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."

After I managed to boot back into my stock rooted phone and flashed CWM from rom manager and with no luck got the same message.

What do you think I should do? I really don't want to have to Odin back to stock and root with root de la Vegas again.

Discard when upgrading is very dangerous. You may have to Odin back to stock and root de la Vegas again

My phone was loki'd and than I updated and must of lost it so I guess I'm going to have to use safestrap?

So if I have safestrap I have to have a backup of the stock rom right? Or can I just install a custom rom and get rid of the stock rom?

Read the Safestrap threads. The answers to your questions are complicated, particularly the "get rid of the stock rom" since that's possible but risky.
YOU will need to judge whether or not you will take that risk based on understanding how Safestrap works.
My Android devices:
vzw Samsung Galaxy S4 stock MJ7, now rooted!
Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, also stock but rooted.

VZ Droid Incredible 2 rooted but otherwise stock.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1

Always back up the stock rom.
Like he said read up.
It gets complicated. I'm running Hyperdrive on my stock slot but there are risks.

to me the risks of losing the stock rom isn't worth it...especially if all this is new to you. You can always go back in the future and do i

You're definitely right there. I had to play the Odin game myself and I think for the time being HD11 is going to serve as my stock and I'm going to use Rom slots from now on.
