Default [Q] Wanting to upgrade to Kit Kat

Hey guys, I'm currently on the Verizon S4 running ME7.
I want to upgrade to MK2, so that way I can install Safestrap and then upgrade to NC5 so I can keep root and install a custom ROM. How the heck do I upgrade to MK2? Is there a full wipe file that I need, or should I do a no wipe? I can't really find ODIN files for MK2. I currrently have modified many system things and have uninstall some Samsung apps with Titanium Backup. Should I use one of the ODIN files for MK2 for a full wipe and install that, and then I will be on a stock version, and then I can root and Safestrap MK2 and then use a keep root method for NC5?

Any help would be appreciated. I just mainly need help upgrading from ME7 to MK2 so that way I can root and install safestrap and use the keep root method for NC5. The ROM I want to install is Echoe for Verizon: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2702592

Thanks guys!

Here is MK2 Odin files for you. Try the no wipe one first. Then make sure you read up a bit if you haven't already on upgrading to NC5 and keeping root. Staying on MK2 isn't a had idea really until more ROMs are available for NC5.
