    So you can make a backup, then you reboot from recovery, press menu at splashscreen and it doesn't take? What about booting all the way into the OS then reboot, change to safe, reboot, recovery...?

    I'm going to reboot now to see what options I have. I'll let you know.

    How are you downloading the ROMS? Are you using a pc the transferring to the card? Are they named romname.zip.zip by chance?

    Safestrap gives you the option of internal or external card so they are there somewhere.

    Yeah, I'm downloading them onto my pc and then transferring to the phone... They aren't named .zip.zip - should they be?

    No that's a common mistake though. You have file extensions visible in your OS though?

    Do you see anything listed filewise when you go to select a rom to flash?

    The setup of my phone is:

    SD v3.0
    Synergy Alpha 3 theme
    ADW Launcher

    I was using Bootstrap to flash roms previously, but with the new roms utilizing hashcodes safestrap, I uninstalled boostrap following your threads instructions and installed safestrap.

    I Created a backup once on safestrap since bootstrap backups are not compatiable. I then go to goggle safe on and it does its thing, i try to flash a theme or just reboot into os, and it just hangs on a black screen after initial moto logo

    I toggle safe off it does it thing and reboots just fine?

    I would like to be able to utilize safestrap for future roms, I am just not sure where i am getting hung up at?

    I would try downloading directly to the phone. Then move them to root of the sdcard and see if you can see them there.

    I believe that once you are in safe mode, you need to flash an OS. Once it moves the userdata, there is nothing there to boot off of.
