I rooted with Kingo too. Root de La Vega doesn't work, just soft bricks. I was able to get the latest Kingo to work from their site. I used the USB 3 cable connected to pc then from status bar option selected mtp over USB 3. With that setup, Kingo work right away.
Installing Safestrap is super easy. Just download the stable version (3.65), install the apk, run the apk and select install recovery. That's it.
Installing a ROM is also easy in Safestrap. Just follow instructions in Safestrap OP to create slot 1, activate slot 1 and install ROM to slot 1. Note that the ROM you install will use the kernel of the stock ROM, so no AOSP.
Once you're satisfied with your new ROM in slot 1, you can move it to the stock slot and totally replace your stock ROM and delete slot 1 to save storage. To do that, make nandroid backups in recovery of both the stock slot and of slot 1, wipe the stock slot (advanced wipe to wipe system and data rather than just just nonadvanced wipe which does basically a factory reset - JUST DON'T WIPE THE SD CARD) and recover the slot 1 nandroid to the stock slot.
