So I have a Sprint GS4 and it's much simpler to root and ROM it than it is the Verizon GS4 it seems lol. Now I am very experienced with flashing and all that. Checked and she is on the latest firmware/update (MK2). So if I have it all figured out, to root and ROM her phone, I:

1. Download Samsung drivers for my computer & install em' (duh).
2. Download and run saferoot (via instructions here).
3. Install safestrap and everything to do with it (via instructions here).
4. Install Hyperdrive (via safestrap instructions in Hyperdrive post #4).
5 PROFIT!

Am I correct here? Any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance!
