I had safestrap on my mk2 I saw the update today so I Uninstalled safe strap after the OTA failed the first time and went into the screen that says DOWNLOAD and on the top says Odon mode and normal boot failed or something similar. Only way to get it to boot is to hold vol down and power then cancel to let it boot? I'm really excited to try the kk update but have no idea how to fix this problem? Thanks a million for any help!

Flash a no-wipe MK2 ROM, then you'll be able to take the OTA.
You've got to return the phone to factory stock, which means no xposed framework, no safestrap, nothing frozen, no "bloat" removed.
It's easier to just flash a factory stock ROM.

You MUST understand that you won't be able to root it once you take the Kit Kat OTA.
That is, you're potentially kissing root goodbye forever.
