Default [Q] Troule rooting Galaxy S4 SGH-i337

So I have searched the threads and used Google at nauseum but I still cannot solve my issue. I have a rooted (KindoRoot) Galaxy S4 SGH-i337 and it is currently running build number JSS15JI337UCUEMK2. I have followed all the instructions for flashing the rom to Gummy-1.1-11-21-13-UNOFFICIAL-jflteatt and to SHOstock-i-v5.0b3 but in both cases, the flash does not take, when the phone reboots, it comes back up with the stock rom. I have even used Odin which also fails.

I am sure that there has been success loading KitKat on this model phone but I am not sure what I am missing. My initial reason for trying this was to get all the ATT junk off the phone to free up base memory.

Thanks in advance for any advice!

Edit: I am getting an "unknown path /sdcard" error right before it reboots.

If you have MK2, I'm pretty positive the bootloader is locked so the only things you can do is root and install safestrap and load up TW based ROMs.

Correct me if I'm wrong people.
Phone: Samsung Galaxy S4
ROM: Touchwiz (Stupid AT&T & the locked bootloader)

Future purchases:
Oppo Find 7
Sony Xperia Z2

The bootloader is locked on all i337's no matter what the firmware. Other than that you are correct.
