Hello,

i m having problems with getting a custom rom to work.
its a AT&T Galaxy S4
I337
Baseband MK2

i rooted the phone....then installed safestrap....
went into safestrap and created a backup. and then installed one of the following files (after each other) on the phone.

aokp_4.3_jflteatt_task650_10.22.2013.zip
CARBON-JB-NIGHTLY-20130906-0328-jflteatt (1).zip
pa_jflteatt-BETA-3.99-RC2-20130922.zip

The Task 650 showed the horse head for a second but went into a thousand blinking lights afterwards.
the Carbot didnt do anything.
and paranoid android showed the shark head loading screen but didnt move on from there.
so none of these 3 worked and i always had to restore the backup.
am i using the wrong roms? am i missing a step? if you could help me out that would be greatly appreciated.
thank you
Ben

Why are you trying to flash roms if you don't know what they are? Or what base they are to begin with? What are your long term goals of having a custom rom?
