[Q] Need Help Installing SafeStrap Deadly Venom Rom On My T-mobile S4..

Hey guys,

I've got a Galaxy S4 on T-mobile in the UK, with the build XXUEMKF. Its Rooted but its running stock JellyBean 4.3 Ive not taken any OTA updates as im looking to install a safestrapped Custom Rom. Just needed some help to make sure I don't soft brick the phone lol.

Im looking to install the Deadly Venom V3.0.2 KitKat SafeStrapped edition in this thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...64&postcount=4

Few noob questions though if anyone could help me..

1) The thread title says its for the AT&T version but Im on t-mobile UK, is this going to be a problem or would it still work without bricking the phone?

2) Its got 2 different install instructions, one for people who have the Mk2 build and another process for people with the Nb1 build. I have neither, I have the MKF build..Can I still install this rom on my S4? If so, should I follow the instructions for the Mk2 Method?

3) Im running Stock JellyBean 4.3 right now, can I still install this safestrapped rom or do I need to do an OTA update to the latest KitKat update? Kies says the latest update I can do is Nb3 apparantly?

I hope someone can give me some simple answers to this, Im quite confused. Any help is much appreciated. Thanks guys

The model number is GT-i9505. Only reason I want to use a safe strapped rom was to avoid tripping knox because my phones still under warranty

Should I follow the install method 1 instructions as if my device was a mk2 version straight from my stock 4.3?

Ah I see.. Well not sure I don't think many of us here use that method and I'm not familiar with it.. You should try asking in a safestrap thread if there is one on the at&t forums.. Not sure if it would even work with your model, better safe than sorry!

It will flash on your device (it says so in the OP) as for tripping KNOX I would do what serio suggested
