Default [Q] i337 S4 MF3 - SafeStrap Rom Installation

Hey All!

I get the feeling I'm probably just doing something wrong, not flashing something, etc etc.

Managed to root my MF3, install SafeStrap, and create a new rom slot.

All that was pretty easy, but I'm stuck trying to install a rom to the new slot.

I'm trying to install Vision X:

I've ROM'ed phones in the past, flashed modems and GAPS, things like that. What I've been doing:

1) Flash Vision X Rom
2) Flash SafeStrap MF3 Kernal
3) Flash LokiDoki (Found here from Vision X:

After this process, I reboot to System, but the phone just begins to boot loop =/

Obviously I can just jump back to stock, which is fully functional. If someone could be so kind as to point out my (presumably) really silly mistake, I would be grateful!

Problem is that Vision X is a 4.3 rom. Since you are on MF3, the only roms that you can install is 4.2.2 Touchwiz roms.
