- install a custom recovery (TWRP 2.5.0.2 looks like the most recent)
- backup
- full wipe
- flash new ROM

I shouldn't have to mess with any of the safestrap stuff correct?

Just trying to be cautious.
No SafeStrap. Backup should include System. Make sure to read OP and last few pages of thread for any new info. Make sure ROM doesn't need loki-doki. Most in att forum don't. What recovery are you on now?

Thank you.

I thought I was on stock recovery, but checking just now apparently I put OUDhs CWM Touch Recovery v1.0.3.4 on sometime in the past year. I'll either go to the latest version of CWM or TWRP before doing anything.
Samsung Galaxy S4
Motorola Droid4 - Work Phone, stock

Past
Samsung Galaxy S3 - retired
Motorola Atrix - Neutrino Rom Mostly Broken
HTC Aria - CM7
HTC Fuze - Energy Rom

If you are on a custom recovery, you "should" be able to flash this thru recovery--if you want it--
