At this point it seems I can use safestrap and use a new slot with a custom rom. Or I can stay rooted with stock rom. Use TBpro to freeze apps I don't want. And if/when next ota comes up I just need to pit and md5. Riker why did you need to flash back to stock? Besides freezing did you remove stuff? I would think of you only froze stuff you can simply unfreeze right?
Yes you can take OTA to MJE and use kingo after to root
I used odin because I modify a bunch of stuff in /system, aosp clock, host files from Adaway and any of that can cause the updater script to fail, easier in my case to just go back to complete stock first
