Question [Q] I would like to i545 MK2 and use CM11 4.4

Hello,

this is my first post, so go easy on me...LOL.

I am trying to root my VZW i545 that has VRUEMK2 4.3 on it now. I have rooted with mj7tool but then can't put a custom recovery on it. I have read on here that that is not possible right now until Hashcode does something with SS? My goal is to be able to run CM11 Kitkat 4.4 or the like on my phone. I am completely new to rooting and such, but managed to get my wifes i605 rooted and flashed within 30mins. So, if anyone/everyone can point me in the right direction, that would be greatly apreciated. Again, I am running VRUEMK2 4.3 on SCH-i545 and want to root/recovery/flash/use kitkat 4.4 from CM11 or Gummy or whoever. Any and all advice/links/programs would be awesome. Thank you.

Caleb

Not possible as of yet because the bootloader is locked so there is no way to get passed that plus safe strap which is the only known work around only works for 4.2 roms and lower. Sorry brother this is the plight of s4 owners.

hmmm....may have to take this out for target practice and go back to the note 2! That thing was super easy to crack.

Are there any links/threads that may point me in the right direction? I can fly planes, forecast tornadoes (wx-pilot.com), and build websites, so it shouldn't be to hard to figure out, and who knows....maybe I can contribute something?

Is it possible to go from a rooted 4.3 MJ7 i545 to a rooted i545 with 4.4 and MK2? This will be the most likely configuration when something finally comes out that will give us S4 i545 users the best chance of getting kit kat?

Forums are filled with threads discussing bootloader lockdown....Samsung has locked it down pretty tight since mdk firmware and many devs have been looking at what can be done with no luck so far.
Safestrap as given us an opening to a degree. Take some time and do some reading and research..
