First off, please don't punch me for asking a question... I swear I usually know what I'm doing...


Anyway. I got a new S4, and was unable to root using motochopper. The phone was on MK2 but just wouldn't budge rootwise. Tried several comps etc. So I tried safestrap, which worked swimmingly. I see, however, that I cannot get a TW free rom on safestrap. So my question is:

How do I install a different recovery over a safestrap MK2 install? I never OTAed, other than safestrap I'm fresh out the box...Or is MK2 for some reason an upgrade from mk3 and I'm stuffed?

Thanks for the help and for hopefully not punching me.
