Awesome! I'm still trying to read through the post...and still will after getting a response here but....
Will this work with the current OTA that i received about 2-3 weeks ago?
And I have to redo this after rebooting?

I don't even care about putting another rom on it (CM11 would be cool though) but I just wanna terminate the bloatware and get my AirStream App running again!!!

If this works...

I can also confirm that write protect is off and I have SuperSU and Safestrap all successfully installed. I tried installing CM11 on romslot-1 but it displayed the droid with the red triangle. Any suggestions on how to get CM11 booting now?

I can also confirm this works. I'm rooted with Write Protection off at 4.4 & 19.6.3.

The exact steps have been posted later on, in the same thread.

I'm not too sure but I think we need specific CM11 (AOSP builds) for SafeStrap or you need a Unlocked bootloader for AOSP Roms.

AOSP based roms require a different kernel. Safestrp cannot flash kernels. No AOSP.

How lucky are you to have confirmed that write protection in fact could be turned off when even the exploit author himself believed otherwise? Great job OP.

Indeed. Probably should have snagged a scratch-off that day to celebrate!
