Default How do I install a safestrap rom with i337 being unlocked to Tmobile

I'm trying to help a friend install some roms on his att gs4. I'm familiar with Tmobile s4 since i have one and often install custom roms but with att phone i see its a little different.

My main question is how do I get a rom on his phone without losing Tmobile unlock privileges he currently has.

also if someone could explain how this whole loki thing works that'd be awesome, like can i install tmo rom on his 337 or only att made roms

he's probably just looking to install a nice stable tw rom that is up to date with either 4.4.2 or 4.3

Thanks, these are very good links and will be extremely helpful.

I'm just wondering what would happen if after I install a rom what or if I'll have to do anything to make them work with his tmo sim/plan

The only thing might be entering T-Mobiles apn settings. tell your friend to go to wireless/networks > more > mobile networks > access point names and have him make a .txt with everything there so he can key it in once he's on a new rom

I'm assuming safestrap recovery will allow us to create a good old NANDroid backup incase of anything going wrong

yeah, you can back up everything. I'd advise doing only data though
