Default Flashing Roms

How will you go on about flashing customs roms to the stock rom in safestrap. I read on 4.4.2 kitkat that is the only way flashing a custom rom to the stock. And to go back to stock rom again after installing a custom rom. Does anybody have a tutorial or instructions on doing this. Last time i went messing with this mess my phone all up and i want to ask and learn how to do this before attempting anything. Please give me some guidance on this like a tutorial with step by step instructions from installing a custom and going back to stock again using safestrap.

once you rooted nc2, install busybox. then install safestrap 3.72. rom slots are confirmed working but keep the default sizing once you choose a slot, and reboot is an issue so you have to long press power button.when making backups in ss 3.72 you have to compress it.

I thought if u was on kitkat that u could only install a custom rom on the stock rom slot and 1 threw 4 wouldn't work on it. I was trying to figure out how can u install a custom rom on the stock rom slot and than vise versa install a official rom back on the stock rom slot. So are u able to use 1 threw 4 now on safestrap

only tried slot 1, dk on stock and dkx on slot, its working but i had some issues with the reboot. yes you can install a rom on stock but a word of caution, you dont have a lot of options of going back to stock if u mess up so flash at your own risk.
Edit; and the only way to go back to stock if you wanna use safestrap is a restore of your stock backup on stock slot.

you leave stock slot alone and play with whatever kk rom you installed in slot 1.
