    I am new to the rooting and custom ROM world. I have a i337-SGH ATT Galaxy S4 running 4.3 ucuemk2 build. Successfully rooted the device with Saferoot. When I try to get into Clockworkmod recovery mode, my phone does not just listen. It always takes me to the default android recovery mode.

    Would be glad if someone could explain how I can install Carbon ROM on my device? Thanks!

    You can install CyanogenMod with their new app program thing. Less hassle and you won't break anything

    I have the same phone. The bootloader is locked. We cannot install custom roms. Well, we can run additional roms with safestrap, and they can only be touchwiz based roms. I haven't tried it but this is what I think the current situation is for our phone. Thank you AT&T.

    This. Safestrap with touchwiz based roms is the only option right now for at&t and verizon S4s.

    You still need a custom recovery to do it
    Plus the bootloader is locked

    Safe strap is a recovery of sorts it's a boot strap you can only flash touch wiz based roms because if the kernel isn't signed it won't boot and you'll most likely brick it
