Current SS 3.71 does not support 4.4.2 KitKat. It works for JB 4.3 only. We are waiting for new release SS for 4.4.2 KitKat.

Wish I had known before installing. Next question is.. how do I flash a zip .. like a keyboard without safestrap? I've rebooted to recovery.. but, get a message that the directory is invalid. Any help is appreciated.

thx

I suggest you should do a whole lot of research before you started to flash things. Visit to the development thread and you can find out more info.
Go back to MJ5, and then flash KnoxRaid rom or any of those that ported by drake if you want to be on KitKat.

Found Drakey's instructions on simulating safe strap for now. was able to flash my keyboard. Looking forward to a safestrap for 4.4.2

Drake has been doing great things and Hashcode is still working on the bootlaoder safestrap issues. Hopefully we'll get it b4 the Note4 comes out!

Once SS is updated it should be fine. But the flashing process with odin isn't hard if you can get access to a computer. Drakey has very clear instructions in any of his ROM threads.

We have been able to get SS to work on the I337 4.4 NB1 build by first downgrading to 4.3 by only flashing some of the 4.3 partitions including the stock kernel then rooting and installing SS. Once we flash the Custom ROM in SS we flash back to the 4.4 stock kernel. From that point forward all we need to do to wipe and flash another ROM is flash the 4.3 kernel again.

I don't know if this will work on your device but it may be worth a shot.
