Prompt [Q] Trouble installing custom ROM SafeStrap ME7 stuck

I have a fresh ME7 recovery installed, rooted, and Safestrap 3.71 recovery installed. I have followed at instructions that I have found in the general forum, and still after creating a ROM slot in Safestrap, and installing both a Custom ROM and the ME7 modules, and even after a "successful" install, once the phone reboots, it goes to the little robot asking if I want to continue or go back to recovery and continues to loop back to the screen. I have been trying to install Jelly 'Beans' - Build 7 which I read in a thread was one of the few custom ROMS safestrap can use. Now I have installed the same Custom ROM this way before, but it has been several months and by trying to get back into the scene and upgrading to a newer ROM, I messed my phone up and cannot get it to load a custom ROM and I am stuck at the normal stock. Please help!!!!1!

I'm not too familiar with Safestrap, but I believe if you want to run a JB 4.3 based rom you'll need to first upgrade to 4.3 stock (odin to MK2), then root/safestrap and install the rom with the matching 4.3 base/modules.

He's trying to flash beans ROM which was never updated to 4.3

As Bob said, you have the wrong version of safestrap if you want to stay on ME7
