Was having a few bugs on baja 16 so i figured i would wipe data cache and system and do a reboot. However when im rebooting its getting stuck at the samsung custom screen. Am i going to have to use odin to restore my phone? Or is there a way to get back into safestrap recovery from here

Try booting into downoad mode, then cancel it and reboot. You can also try booting into the stock recovery and doing a factory reset.

I tried the download mode cancel, but it just goes to the custom screen directly after that. I just dont feel like using odin to flash a stock tar and then have to reroot.

I also did a factory reset in the stock recovery but it looks like its going to stay frozen on the screen. I was on baja 16 with the nc4 radio, is there a nc2 rooted stock rom i can flash via odin?

Unfortunately there isn't an NC2 tar that can be flashed through Odin. Just flash MJE, root with TowelRoot, install SU, BusyBox and SS 3.65 then upgrade.

TowelRoot is an app which works a lot better and only takes a few seconds. There is no concern with the possibility of spyware or whatnot like there is with Kingo.

You need to install the ROM first (while still on SS 3.65) then immediately boot from recovery to download mode to flash the firmware in Odin, then reboot and install SS 3.75.
