Default MK2 Loki method?

Hi everyone so i originally had the 4.3 Hyperdrive rom flashed on my S4 but then i saw the GE 4.4.2 and wanted to flash it to my phone. i am new to the s4 area since i just upgraded from my GNex. but is there a way to get TWRP working right for the MK2 version as well as getting a loki method to work so i can flash the GE 4.4.2? when i try to install TWRP from GooManager it says it installs but when i press reboot to recovery it kicks it into download mode and says "cant boot up normally". any ideas or help? thanks

I can't speak of sprint S4's as this is a verizon forum. Somebody else maybe able to comment but on verizon S4 there is no loki exploit in firmware after MDK was released.
so long Verizon and my awesome S4 , hello TMO G3

If you are on sprint... I think a few people were having better luck using Odin to flash Philz (cwm)
That's what I did on my other s4 (sprint )
Cf auto root, then Odin Philz . worked like a charm.

I can also say that Philz just seemed to work better for me on that phone. Not sure if Knox had anything Ru so with it. You may want to Odin back to stock, then Odin Philz. Just my opinion

I'm not on sprint. I have Verizon is there any way that I can get it flashed? Is it possible to downgrade and then loki and flash the GE?

OK I was going off your profile which says sprint.
No you can't downgrade.
You can root and use SafeStrap. Luckily there are now quite a few SS Roms out there for your phone. They will only be Touchwiz however.

You won't be able to flash any 4.4 TW Roms until Verizon pushes that ota out and devs get those Roms working.

I'm not a big fan of touchwiz... The only ui like that that I actually liked was HTC Sense and that was back when it first came out lol I'd rather have my stock Android ui back like I had on my nexus

Im with ya there. I prefer aosp myself not TW. Well the only option really for you would to either get a dev s4 or a MDK s4 off swappa. And sell the one you have now. There are some nice tw Roms that give the feel of aosp but its still TW.
Anyways... That's what I did. Sold my mj7 S4 and grabbed an mdk one. If you ask me the Dev edition is just to much money.

You can check out Eclipse or foxhound diamond dogs they both are touchwiz but have the looks of aosp

+1 for eclipse, be sure to get the most updated version on his own website. His ROM has touchwizz base but its heavily themed to look like aosp.
