Developers like HashCode are the only reason that we can have roms and development on devices that would otherwise not be supported by the mainstream developers. These super locked devices may never see official nightly support by the likes of Cyanogen or AOKP, but thanks to development like SafeStrap we can still flash Roms and other mods to these devices. Safestrap 3.5 has received an update and is now based on the latest and greatest version of Team Win Recovery Project 2.6! Some improvements have been made in TWRP2. TWRP is a fully touch style recovery. It is completely themable. Other updates include update SuperSU install for 4.3 roms, tons of bug fixes, Screen saving in recovery (you can set the timeout in advanced>settings>Screen, SElinux support in recovery (first boot wont take so long), and tons more!
SafeStrap specific updates include the ability to install safestrap and recovery when running cm10 without having to first flash back to stock, battery meter is back, updated twrp theme, added partition sizes to Rom-slot screen when active, added check FS function to ROM-slot screen when active, and a complete wewrite against twrp 2.6! The latest version of Safestrap for many devices can be downloaded at the source link below.
