Samsung GS4 VZW Rom Flashing

Hi, I'm new to Samsung devices and just got an S4 (coming from a Droid Bionic). It's the Verizon one (i545) on MK2 baseband. Do I need to use Safestrap or should I go with unlocking the bootloader via loki? I've tried flashing CM11 (cm-11-20140313-NIGHTLY-jflte) and CarbonRom (CARBON-KK-NIGHTLY-20140316-0428-jflte) with Safestrap 3.71 with no success. The phone boots into an endless black screen after the Safestrap logo.
I would appreciate any help on this or a link to what I need to do. My Internet searching has come up with either little or confusing information.

I believe I finally found the correct information. I'll leave this post here to help others find the information as well. If its too redundant then maybe a moderator will delete it.
As far as I can tell there is a of yet no method to unlock an MK2 bootloader so I'll have to stick with safestrap.
I had Cyanogen on my Safestrapped Bionic and Carbon too. I guess they're no longer safestrap compatible.

Safestrap users are still having to use Touchwiz Based Roms, CM11 are based and AOSP and will not work with Safestrap.
