Default [Q] NB4 phone with SS and installing ROM

I got the NB4 update and was able to re-root via an older version of Kingo. Got SS installed and want to install a custom rom on the device. When i'm reading through the instructions, it wants me to flash via ODIN some files.

Can anyone explain on why I have to flash via ODIN files to get the ROM to install on SS? I did install one before and it didn't need and re-flashing.

Was the ROM you are trying to flash a KitKat ROM? Maybe the ROM required updated firmware?

Because you are flashing a KitKat ROM.
You need the BL, AP and CP to be flashed in Odin in order for the ROM to boot and function properly.

You will also have to flash the ROM to the stock slot or it will not work correctly.

What was the older version of Kingo you used? I am trying to re-root after this update as well. Thank you. =)

I went to the KINGO site and instead of downloading it from the website directly, I picked CNET download which had version 1.18

I can confirm 1.18 is working for sure.

Nope, it does a fine job and doesn't trip Knox.
