Sent from my DROID3
i ran safestrap backup and accidentally chose backup to internal. I re-ran and backed up to sd-ext. OK to manually delete the old backup on internal and will I need to do anything different than normal when attempting to flash stock after flashing a new rom?
I am having troubles getting the recovery to install. I have a successfully rooted Droid 3. I have never put any other backup on it.
When i first tried to get Safestrap working, the app installed perfectly fine, and I ran the Install Recovery. That appeared to work until I noticed that it said "Not Installed" at the top still. I didn't get any errors running the install. So i tried it again, same thing. I reflashed my phone, re-rooted it, reinstalled Safestrap (the app) and tried again. Same thing. It doesn't give me any errors, just doesn't install the recovery. Any ideas?
Check the SU app. See if safestrap is listed.
Also, redownload the app if you haven't already.
Quick reply, thanks.
So its listed, and I've redownloaded and reinstalled at least 3 times.
Rebooted? Battery pull?
Its tough to say.
I've definitely gotten this issue and its something like clearing data or cache in the safestrap app or rebooting or closing it and trying again.
You are on system x.x.890 right?
Yeah, that's what my system is. I'm perplexed. I tried rebooting a few times. Its definitely getting superuser permission. I tried clearing the data and cache. Just pulled the battery and gonna wait a bit and try again. Do you think another program I have installed may be somehow messing with it or who knows. This is all just so frustrating. I'm usually good at this stuff.
It seems to be thinking its installing the recovery while its happening, but then it never gets installed.
Ugh, I wish I could help you more. I'm off to bed however, I'll see if I can't send someone in to help you further!
