Default [Q] Safestrap help

So recently I got safestrap after being impatient to wait for a bootloader for a tripped 4.3 d2vzw (which I doubt will ever come out). I followed the safestrap directs carefully. I installed the latest 3.71 apk, installed the recovery, and booted to it. Whenever I try to flash any roms though (in a seperate slot of course) it says successful but when I boot nothing happens, it is just black. I can't turn it off or "on" during this unless i pull the battery. I've tried many roms including, CM10, CM11, Paranoid android, synergy, and cleanrom. The only one that stood out was synergy, it had an installer pop up but after it "installed" and i rebooted it did the black screen thing again. I've tried wiping each rom slot every time messing with different options everything. I even flashed the kernal thingy after each one. It just refuses to work. Anybody have any ideas? It would greatly help. I just want my phone with no samsung bloatware and preferably CM11. Thanks

Also, it seems to be it is always checking the partition something and it never completes that action. I have also tried eclipse.

So what would be an example of a touchwiz rom with no bloatware and no samsung root checker? Isn't Synergy one of those?

You can only flash TouchWiz 4.3 roms.

No aosp (cm, aokp, pa, slimkat, etc.)

And no TouchWiz 4.1.2 (hyperdrive, synergy, cleanrom 7, etc.)

just follow the download list and you'll find everything you need.

First, be sure to read the safestrap thread thoroughly:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2605648

paying special attention to post #11 where it says you can only flash TW 4.3 ROMs using safestrap. So that would be Alliance, Wicked Sensations, CleanROM, MOAR, samstock, old & slow's stock ROM, and Scrosler's stock ROM. Check the development section for all these ROMs. You can't flash any AOSP ROMs, which includes CM, through safestrap.

Edit - Holy schniekies, ninja'd to the max by multiple people I guess I type too slow and put too much info in my post. Good job fellas. I will answer your question about Synergy though. It is still a 4.1.2 ROM as it has not yet been updated to 4.3.
Shouldn't we treat this world like the garden of Eden and avoid the apple at all costs?
