Default AT&T S4 on Tmobile - Custom Rom?

Hello,

I have an AT&T S4 that I want to run on Tmobile. It was running Android 4.3/MF3 baseband so I was able to install safestrap and root it. I am running the stock rooted ROM (with SIM unlock via region lock away) and the QCN file update to get 4G LTE/HSPA and 3G.

I would like to install a custom ROM but each time I do I get a bootloop. I am installing via safestrap in a slot I created NOT the stock rom slot. But as I said each time I try to boot I get a boot loop and have to return to the stock rooted rom via the stock rom slot. I got wicked rom to load but Wifi didn't work.

Am I able to install tmobile ROMS on this device (I want to be able to tether)? How do I do that? Which kernel do I use, the ATT or tmobile kernel? Do I install the ROM in the stock slot or the safestrap virtual slot?

I don't want to wind up with a device I cannot use on tmobile. Also, my computer does not see the S4 any longer. It sees my Note 3 fine but when I plug in the S4 it doesn't show as a device.
Samsung Galaxy Note 3
ROM: Tweaked Alpha 2
Kernel: LeanKernel 1.3

Which custom rom were you attempting to install? Was it a 4.2.2 touchwiz rom?

I'm running 4.3 so does that mean I can only run 4.3 ROMS in the virtual slot?

My baseband ends with MF3 and my build number ends in MK2. What are my opitons?

If your build number is MK2, you're on 4.3. You need Safestrap 3.71, and you can only run other 4.3 Touchwiz ROMs. Kernel doesn't matter because Safestrap does not flash kernels. You should be fine flashing any TMobile 4.3 TW ROM.
Current Device: ATT Samsung Galaxy S4 (i337)

You can flash ROMs from any variant, they just may not work as well and you have to make sure you flash a kernel that matches your phone afterwards (Tmobile rom, but kernel from AT&T section)

But right now I have a T-Mobile kernel and it runs fine. When I flash an att kernel my MMS stops working.
