Go to the root kitkat thread. Or the firmware thread. Grab the Odin files for the 4.3 ota. Flash all of them except the bootloader tar. Then just wait. Don't pull battery or anything else.if you see the at&t logo keep waiting. When it fully boots, continue with kitkat upgrade and root. Be sure to grab my upgraded kk Ota from the last few pages of the kk root thread . Also make sure to look at my backup process so you'll be able to make and use backups. Oh and thank the other 43 people for not even bothering to help. I'll check back and see how things see going.

Just flash it in safestrap as the KK update. Read the root kitkat thread again if you need a refresher on anything. Make sure you do not wipe cache/dalvik when installing the zip. Just reboot recovery and install the zip.As for the custom rom I would say because of locked bootloader. This is my first galaxy,I'm an HTC guy normally.Now that I think about it. Once your on KK safestrap cant mount the system.I found a work around using the pawned kernel,that is also in my backup thread.

Follow the exact steps I laid out above. If you went step by step following my instructions,then following the root instructions everything should be fine. Once you get 4.4 back up dont play around with it until you make a backup.

ok i am trying to sideload my ota update on my att s4 active sgh-i357. It had problem with digitizer not working. So i reset it a few times. Now it stuck in reboot loop, or it freezes on the battery. Not even the att symbol. I try to restore in recovery but it reboots out of recovery as well. I read this is a softbrick but im lost on what i should do next. I have tried several different things. But nothing will get past this point
