I did a clean install I tried it twice once by just using the wipe and format and the second by deleting rom slot 1 and making it again, the first time was a major bootloop the second time it made it to the main screen but I couldn't connect to wifi it just kept shutting it off so I kept going and I didnt have a chance to get to the home page because android and flashlight kept force closing, so I just reflash Alliance with all its problems. Just sucks that in locked into 4.3 and they can't figure out a way to unlock it. I'm due for a upgrade anyway. But no I didn't install anything other then the rom and I picked stock and tw options in aroma
What I would do is reload the full 4.3 (ml1 I think), reinstall safestrap, and try to install whatever rom you want over the stock rom slot and just forget using rom slots all together. That'll probably fix any kind of conflict your roms are having.
