1) Reset the phone completely after you back up all your stuff. Go back to stock/factory reset. You always want to start with a clean slate.
2) Do the Verizon over the air update if there is one to get the MJE build if you don't have it already.
My phone wouldn't do the MJE update from Verizon so I found it on the internet and Odin'ed it on it. If you have it already you still might want to try finding it online and installing via odin so you know you have the correct build.
3) Download, and install Kingo root - this might take a few tries - I had to try twice until the root stuck
4) Once you are rooted go an install safestrap like any other app make sure that you are allowing off market apps so it installs
5) Once you have safestrap and the recovery go and install whatever rom you want - enjoy
Good luck with that
