Question [Q] Need to Get Back to Stock on Verizon GS4

So, I need to get back to pure stock, un-everything, however, I have a problem standing in my way:

I have SafeStrap installed (3.62 if I recall correctly), but I had to recover a bad install and now I can't even boot into SafeStrap anymore but the still boots into the Cyanogenmod ROM I installed. I have ME7 installed on my stock partition. Is there anyway I can force the phone to boot into SafeStrap, or boot into my stock partition, or update through Loki?

Edit: So I installed SafeStrap 3.65 and discovered that I recovered my Cyanogenmod install onto my stock ROM partition. Not sure if this is bad or not... :/

Edit 2: Okay... I found my old SD card with my original ME7 backup on it, so I'm back to that. Now I need to uninstall a bad Clockworkmod install because it's preventing me from updating.
