Since you're on MJ5, your bootloader is locked. The ONLY way to install a custom rom is to use safestrap. You'll need Safestrap-HLTEATT-3.71.apk.

There are several good 4.3 roms available, and safestrap is a very, well.., safe way to flash roms. No custom kernels or CyanogenMod though.

Thank you guys but I am used to more freedom aka Unlocked bootloader ,that's crazy though that the ATT version is as strict as big red
