Default [Q] upgrade safestrap?

Is there a way to upgrade my safestrap to 3.7? I am on ME7. I am trying to install Hyperdrive and with no luck has this happened. I tried version 16.1 and realized that was for kit kat. then 10.1 and it still did not work.

Is there any possible way for ME7 to get upgraded to kit kat and keep root? i keep seeing pages where 4.3 can get upgraded but nowhere with 4.2.2

i have and i get lost in most of the lingo. I have been out of this for a long time and need some catching up. i have no clue what nc5 means and some of these other terms.



uhh and to add to this i recently was able to get 10.1 hyperdrive working but only after installing on my stock Rom. Am i screwed?> or could i get safestrap working again?

Safestrap 3.71 is fully functional on the SCH-i545 on Jelly Bean (Android 4.3).

There is no Safestrap release for Android 4.4 (Kit Kat) unless you use the 3.72 release from the AT&T phone. That's known to not work properly on the Verizon phones, but several people have managed to use it to support a 4.4 upgrade while retaining root. Those are complex upgrade processes that require people to carefully follow the upgrade process. There's apparently a large number of people who can't manage that process successfully.

Read the several MK2-to-NC5 upgrade threads. Decide if you can be disciplined enough to follow those processes precisely. If not, wait for a native NC5 root technique.
My Android devices:
vzw Samsung Galaxy S4 stock NC5 rooted
Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, also stock but rooted.

VZ Droid Incredible 2 rooted but otherwise stock.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1
