Why can't you just flash straight on Safestrap? I thought you only need Odin when trying to upgrade to kitkat. Sorry for my ignorance

You can flash all day long with safestrap... however safestrap isn't compatible with kit kat and you won't be booting back up unless the necessary boot files are installed...this is where Odin comes in. This is simply the way it has to be done for now.
