Default New way to install International/T-Mobile 4.4.2 - help needed

Ok guys. I have come up with a method to install 4.4.2 international and T-Mobile ROMs without ADB.

I am using some stuff from @drakeymcmb and @Hashcode

I however need some help.

I will not be doing a tutorial yet because this is not complete.

I used EchoeROM from the International section. It boots and runs fine for the most part.

Bugs I can't figure out how to fix but have ideas for based on fixes from the AT&T S4.

Wi-Fi will not turn on. (I will need @Hashcode to help with that.)
Using the ATT PTA apns works, but is shoddy with LTE.
I ran into one random reboot when opening messaging. Didn't happen after it booted up again.

If you guys could give me a hand. I and the community would love you.

THIS IS NOT AND MAY NEVER BE A FINAL METHOD. DO NOT ASK FOR ETA's. AS OF RIGHT NOW, THIS IS ONLY A PROOF OF CONCEPT.

Thanks.

It involves a combo of Odin and safe strap. Basically the exact process for XRom and Knoxraid. I have not seen any posts or topics about it.so I am fairly confident that we can work together to get more ROMs on our device.

After doing some research. We may also be able to flash Aroma Kit kat Roms. I am getting very excited. Right now I am downloading ROM files on my phone so I will be doing some testing tonight and the rest of this weekend .
