NC1 STOCK -- Get to NC1 Stock from NC1 or earlier. (You can Odin back to NB1 after taking update)
Link to update zip can be found in Post #1948. Thanks @Maribou

NB1 STOCK -- Get to NB1 Stock from NC1, NB1, or earlier. 2 versions available...

2. I337UCUFNB1_4.4_Rootable_Stock_Odin_tar (This version is rootable with towelroot)
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2674223
Thanks @muniz_ri

MLD LEAK -- Get to the UNOFFICIAL KitKat leak released BEFORE NB1, from MLD or earlier.
Note: If you flash the leak, you can Odin back to MK2. See the thread for more info.
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2624782
Thanks@designgears and thanks@ddubz for the link.

MK2 STOCK -- Get to MK2 Stock from MLD, MK2, or earlier...
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2621279

NB1 to NC1 "Keep Root" Method... Thanks @muniz_ri
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...5#post52167745

NEUTERED NB1 UPGRADE FULL ODIN TAR... This file will allow MK2 Bootloader Users ONLY to upgrade to factory stock NB1 while maintaining the ability to downgrade back to factory stock MK2. Thanks @muniz_ri
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2700726

DOWNGRADING FROM NB1 TO MK2... While not a full downgrade because the bootloader stays at NB1, it will get you back to 4.3 so you flash 4.3 ROMs. Thanks @ted77usa
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2663545
BLOCK THE AT&T OTA UPDATE
OPTION 1 - Flash a Custom ROM

OPTION 2 - Freeze the following applications...
-- AT&T Software update -- system/priv-app/wssyncmldm.apk -- AT&T
-- wssyncmlnps -- system/priv-app/wssyncmlnps.apk -- Samsung
-- LocalFOTA -- system/app/LocalFOTA.apk -- Samsung
Last two may not be required, but can't hurt. (Pulled from here. Thanks @Tsuul and @Ends)
ROOT
NC1 -- From the Galaxy S5 Forum... Towelroot v3. Thanks @geohot
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2783157
As of v2, no need to reboot or use SELinux mode changer to install SafeStrap. Thanks @Maribou

NB1 -- No direct root method, but @muniz_ri has a thread with 2 work arounds...
post 1 - Flashing a stock rooted NB1 rom
post 2 - MK2 to NB1 upgrade with a modified updater.zip
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2692825

MK2 -- From the Verizon forum and the method I used... Saferoot. Thanks @k1mu
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2565758

LOST ROOT WHILE FLASHING A ROM? -- Flash the UPDATE-SuperSU.zip file in safestrap. Thanks @Chainfire
Latest Version - UPDATE-SuperSU-v2.00.zip
Previous Version - UPDATE-SuperSU-v1.94.zip
RECOVERY
SAFESTRAP IS THE ONLY RECOVERY WE CAN USE!
Don't even try flashing another one. HUGE thanks @Hashcode.

Development thread (and downloads)... http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2448925
Q&A thread... http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2428254

NB1 / NC1 -- Safestrap v3.72 beta
MK2 -- Safestrap v3.71
DEADLY VENOM KITKAT MAGIC TOOL
This is what makes flashing KitKat ROMs possible for MK2 and NB1 stock users. Please check out the the thread for detailed instructions for flashing KitKat ROMs. Thanks @rebel1699
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=51067706

*** Those on NC1 base or those that Odin'd to NB1 with @muniz_ri's Rootable Odin tar DO NOT need to use this tool to flash KitKat ROMs.***
MODEMS
I337 ATT MODEMS NC1 NB1 FMLD MK2 MJ9 MJ6 MF3 MDL MDB Modems
These can be flashed via Safestrap recovery. Thanks @RockRatt
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2496517

******************** KITKAT - 4.4.2 ROMs ********************
1. ALL ROMS BELOW ARE CONFIRMED WORKING ON ATT PHONES WITH MK2, NB1, OR NC1 BASE WITH SAFESTRAP
2. ROMs confirmed working on STOCK slot, but FLASH AT YOUR OWN RISK.
3. ROMs are listed as... Name and Version -- ROM Base -- Forum -- Release Date
4. Only Touchwiz based 4.4.2 ROMs will work. Some GPE ROMs may work with limited functionality. CM and AOSP will not as they are not compatible with the Stock Kernel.

Thank you to all the developers for their hard work and sharing their ROMs with us.
INSTALL NOTES
1. If ROM uses Aroma Installer... UNCHECK reboot option at end. (This will allow you to go back to safestrap and flash the modules)
2. Some ROMs require SuperSU to be installed. UPDATE-SuperSU-v2.00.zip can be found here.
3. For non-ATT based ROMs, you may need to configure APN settings for LTE and text messaging to work. (See post #1 for more details)
4. On Verizon based ROMs, if you have an issue connecting to your voicemail, go to phone settings and verify vm number is your phone number and not *86. (thanks @hovax615@hotmail.com)

***Now that safestrap v3.72 has been released, MK2 and NB1 users who downgraded only need to Odin the Magic Tool Kit files the FIRST time they install a 4.4.2 ROM. Afterwards they can reboot into recovery and flash as many mods or new 4.4.2 ROMs without ever having to go back into odin. The only time they would have to use Odin again is if they want to return to 4.3 ROMs.***

Specifically... \META-INF\com\google\android\updater-script

An easy way to edit the zip file is with 7zip. (Its a free Windows program that lets you browse and make changes to the archive without having to unzip and rezip the entire file.)

Step 1
Download the modified updater-script.

Step 2
If the file is "updater-script" (with no .txt) you can delete the original in the ROM zip and replace it with the modified updater-script

If the file is "updater-script.txt", you should be able to just delete the ".txt" extension. Then delete the original in the ROM zip and replace it with the modified updater-script

Step 2 (alternative)
- Drag the original "updater-script" to your desktop and delete it from the ROM install zip.
- Open both (original and modified) updater files with Notepad++ (another free Windows program)
- Replace the contents of the original updater-script with the contents of the modified updater-script
- Save the "newly edited" original update-script and drag it back ROM install in 7zip

Step 3
All done. Close 7zip and copy newly update ROM install zip to your extSdCard and flash away.

******************** JELLY BEAN - 4.3 ROMs ********************
1. ALL ROMS BELOW ARE CONFIRMED WORKING ON ATT PHONES WITH MK2 or NB1 BASE
2. Each ROMs was tested on STOCK slot, but FLASH AT YOUR OWN RISK.
3. ROMs are listed as... Name and Version -- ROM Base -- Forum -- Release Date
4. Only Touchwiz based 4.3 ROMs will work... This means no CM, AOSP, or GPE ROMs because they do not use Stock Kernel.

Thank you to all the developers for their hard work and sharing their ROMs with us.
INSTALL NOTES
1. ALL ROMs confirmed working on ROM slots for MK2 base users ONLY.
2. When flashing over ROM Slot, deleting and recreating the ROM slot with default partition sizes has the best results.
3. If ROM uses Aroma Installer... UNCHECK reboot option at end. (This will allow you to go back to safestrap and flash the modules)
4. For non-ATT based ROMs, you may need to configure APN settings for LTE and text messaging to work. (See post #1 for details)
5. On Verizon based ROMs, if you have an issue connecting to your voicemail, go to phone settings and verify vm number is your phone number and not *86. (thanks @hovax615@hotmail.com)
INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS
If you took the NB1 OTA...
1. Please follow the NB1 to MK2 Downgrade Method to get back to MK2 before proceeding with the installation.
2. Even using the bypasslkm exploit, you may experience issues with wifi.


Install Instructions for all MK2 users and NB1 users who downgraded:
1. Download ROM install files and copy to extSdcard
2. Reboot into SS recovery
3. If choosing STOCK Slot... WIPE > advanced wipe (everything except extSdCard)
3. If choosing ROM Slot... Delete and recreate ROM slot1 (then verify you are on the ROM slot)
4. INSTALL ROM .zip file
5. INSTALL 'jflteatt-MK2-modules.zip' found in safestrap thread. (Optional if MK2 module is included in ROM)
6. Reboot
7. Configure APN Settings

Default [INDEX] All things AT&T MK2, NB1, and NC1 (including ROMs)

MODS, THEMES, AND APPS

PSA... Before applying anything below, I strongly recommend making a backup in Safestrap. Themes and MODs will react differently depending on which ROM and/or base they are installed over. Having a backup will save you a little time in case things go wrong.

How to Backup in Safestrap
 

1. Reboot into Safestrap Recovery
2. Press Backup
3. Configure backup...
--- Check all 3 partitions (Data, Cache, and System)
--- Uncheck "Enable Compression."
--- Check "Skip MD5 generation during backup."
4. Swipe to Back Up

When finished, backup will be stored on Ext SDcard under... /TWRP/BACKUPS/xxxxxx/{ROM}

XPOSED FRAMEWORK AND MODULES
After installing the Xposed Framework you can install various modules that will allow you to customize different aspects of your ROM or Stock image. Complete Repository of Modules can be found he

NC1 UPDATE, ROOTING, AND RECOVERY GUIDE

After following @Maribou's instructions, I took the plunge and upgraded from MK2 base to NC1 base. Why? I was bored. For your convenience, here is the DETAILED guide I made. I tested it 3 times to confirm that it works, but as always...

Follow this guide at your own risk... NOTHING IS 100% GUARANTEED.

BEFORE YOU BEGIN...
Make sure PC can see phone, if not, download the latest drivers from Samsung website.


UPDATE TO NC1...

FILES YOU WILL NEED...
Odin v3.09 -- one link here. Thanks @daerragh
NB1 OTA -- I337UCUFNB1_4.4_Stock_Odin_tar -- from here. Thanks @muniz_ri
NC1 update -- 2400258.zip -- from Post #1948. Thanks @Maribou

STEP 1 - FLASH NB1 OTA in ODIN
on phone...
1. power off phone
2. press and hold BOTH power and volume down buttons
3. when you see "Warning!" screen, release both buttons
4. press volume up to continue
5. connect phone to PC via usb cable
on pc...
6. extract .tar.md5 from NB1 OTA .rar file
7. Right click Odin and run as administrator
8. click AP button and select extracted .tar.md5 file
9. click Start
10. Phone will reboot when complete... You are now on STOCK NB1!!!

STEP 2 - FLASH NC1 UPDATE via STOCK RECOVERY
1. copy 2400258.zip to your External SdCard
2. unplug and power off phone
3. press and hold BOTH power and volume up buttons
4. when you see the blue "RECOVERY BOOTING..." message in the top left corner, release power button
5. when you see the android guy, release volume up button
6. Select "apply update from external storage"
7. browse to location of 2400258.zip and select it
8. Phone will reboot when complete... You are now on STOCK NC1!!!


ROOTING AND RECOVERY INSTRUCTIONS...

FILES YOU WILL NEED...
Towel Root (v2 or later) -- tr.apk -- from here. Thanks @geohot
Safestrap v3.72 -- Safestrap-JFLTE-3.72-kk-B01.apk -- from here. Thanks @Hashcode

STEPS...
1. Upload all files to External SDcard
2. Go into Settings > More > Security
- Check "Unknown sources"
- uncheck "Verify apps"
3. Open My Files app, browse to tr.apk, click it, and install.
4. Open Towelroot and click make it ra1n... You are now rooted!!!

5. Open My Files app, browse to Safestrap-JFLTE-3.72-kk-B01.apk, click it, and install.
6. Open Safestrap and click Install Recovery... You now have recovery!!!

*** If you encounter issues rooting or installing the safestrap recovery, install SELinux Mode Changer and switch the mode to Permissive. Then try rooting or installing safestrap again. ***


Now you are ready to flash a KitKat ROM. See post 2 for list of compatible ROMs and installation instructions. (Make sure to use the ATT_NC1_modules as you are on NC1 base now.)

FAQs

RETURNING TO STOCK / ODIN

What is ODIN and how does it work?
Odin is a 3rd party program that can restore your phone to factory settings. Post 5 has a step by step walkthrough for flashing the NB1 base image. (Those wishing to flash the MK2 base can follow the same guide, substituting in the MK2 files linked in post 1.)
I took the NB1 OTA, can I Odin the MK2 files?
No. You can only restore your current base or newer. You cannot go backwards. Two exceptions... MLD leak and NC1 update. Those that flashed the MLD leak can Odin back to MK2. Those that took the NC1 update can Odin back to NB1.

Odin to NB1... from ANY base
Odin to MK2... from MLD, MK2, MF3, or earlier.

That said, if you are on NB1 and would like to flash 4.3 ROMs, you can follow the DOWNGRADING FROM NB1 TO MK2 guide linked in post 1.

RECOVERY

Which recoveries can we use?
If you are on MK2, NB1, or NC1 base, then you have a locked bootloader. SAFESTRAP is the ONLY recovery you can use.

ROMS

I am on ATT with safestrap. Which ROMs can I flash? Does that include i9505 ROMs too?
Every ROM listed in the thread have been confirmed to work with our phone. Yes... There are i9505 ROMs listed in the thread too.
Can I flash AOSP or CM ROMs?
Sure. It's your phone. You can flash whatever you want... BUT IT WON'T WORK. Since our bootloader is locked, we can cannot change the kernel. This means only ROMs that are compatible with the stock touchwiz kernel will work.
Do Google Play Edition ROMs work?
Do they boot up? YES. Are they functional for day to day use? No.

The GPE kernel is similar to the stock touchwiz kernel and this is why the ROM will load and make calls. Unfortunately, because of the differences... the internal and external SD cards are not recognized, wifi is broken, and USB transfer to PC does not work.

At present time, there is one GPE ROM that has been modified to work with safestrap. Link in post 2
What's the deal with the updater-script?
Since Safestrap is designed to work around the locked bootloader, it works a little different that the other recoveries. There is one line that gives Safestrap trouble...

format("ext4", "EMMC", "/dev/block/mmcblk0p16", "0");

This is where the /system partition lives. While wiping /system is ok, formatting the entire block must delete a file or symlink that safestrap cannot restore.

Check the ROM list. There will be a note if the updater-script needs to be replaced. I have uploaded a copy for your convenience, but you are welcome to edit the script on your own. Instructions for replacing the updater-script are located in post 2.

***FAILURE TO REPLACE UPDATER-SCRIPT, WHEN NEEDED, WILL RESULT IN ENDLESS BOOTANIMATION***
I'm stuck in the bootanimation after flashing a rom... What gives?
Did you wait long enough? Some ROM can take up to 10 min to come up on the initial boot.

Did you forget to replace the updater-script? Endless bootanimation is a symptom of formatting "/dev/block/mmcblk0p16" for safestrap users.

If you don't think the updater-script was the issue, try flashing a previously working ROM. If the other ROM works, it might have just been a bad download. Otherwise or if you know the updater-script was the cause, try restoring a previous backup. If that does not work, your only choice will be to Odin back to stock.

THEMES AND MODS

Why does xxxx MOD work great on yyyy ROM or Stock, but it's not on zzzz ROM?
Each situation is different, but...
1. MOD was built using one base and your ROM is built with a different base.
2. Dev already modified that aspect of the ROM. (ie - Battery icon MOD might not work correctly if dev already baked in his own custom battery icon into his ROM.)

OTHER STUFF

Do I need to use the Deadly Venom KitKat Magic Tool?
The Tool was created to allow MK2 users and NB1 users (who used the downgraded method in order to root) to run KitKat ROMs. Now that towelroot has been released, NB1 users can upgrade to NC1 to root and no longer need the magic tool.

MK2 users will still need to use the tool the first time they flash a KitKat ROM, as well as NB1 users wishing to flash 4.3 ROMs.
