For what it's worth, the build I would suggest avoiding if you want to use saferoot or root your phone at all is what I found from Surge1223 on androidforum: SCH-I545_VZW_1_20131212083410_mwx72ql56g_fac.zip
Not a dig on Surge1223, as with anything I use all downloads at my own risk.
Thanks again for the responses, any info I can provide from this that will help anyone else trying to use Saferoot please let me know.
FWIW, I don't have an androidforums account. Also, my upload is fine, otherwise it wouldn't flash in Odin. Next time come tell me or comment in my thread about the issues your having with my upload.
