Default [Q] Stuck in safe strap and can not find a rom or stock rom

I went through the process of Rooting my phone with the towelroot process. Got superuser installed and running without tripping Knox.

Installed Busybox and Installed safestrap. Knox still not tripped. then backed up my stock rom on my internal drive.. I tried using the default sizes and

installing [ROM] FireNote Mj5 Deodex V14 on ROM 1 slot and then rebooted but it stayed at a black screen with just my blue LED lit up at the top of the

screen. let it set for ten mins like this and nothing happen. so i pulled the battery and booted back up, now im able to get back into safe strap but i can not

find any files of my back up or of the firenote mj5 to try to reinstall it.

Is there a way from here that i can try and put the stock rom back on and start over? like using odin or anything?

Ive had that same problem . You might have to download a rom to your external sd card and flash it in the stock slot cause the extra slots work sometimes and sometimes not . You can change from internal to external sd towords the top in safestrap and your roms might be there. But you need to find out if you were on kitkat or jb cause you cant mix them . Read the rom posts carefuly its very important . Forget the slots til your phone will boot to a rom.

You flashed a jb rom on a kk bootloader= softbrick. Pick a kk rom next time and pls. Checkout the new ss for nc2 users it's ver. 3.75.

Just do a factory reset to the stock slot and then flash but if your trying to restore your factory rom then go where it says restore if you can find your backup if not then install a rom in the stock slot . Were you on kitkat or jb? You might have to get a computer to download a rom to a sd card from this forum if you didnt have one on there and i dont think you will have to format it the phone will read what its allowed to read by the system witch will be whatever rom you put on it . But if you installed the wrong safestrap and you were on official kk then i dont know how to fix it .you will have to wait till someone with more smarts than me can help you.
