I've had the original Droid and the Droid 2, I recently got a Droid 4 a few weeks ago.
First thing I did was root and install Safestrap, and I've made some nandroid backups manually using the Safestrap recovery (including an unmodified stock+root one).
But my question is concerning ROM Manager. I used to have it set up to make automatic backups every night, so that if I accidentally screwed something up, I could restore last night's backup. It was a nice system. And then I used the "ROM Manager Janitor" app to delete backups older than 5 days so the SD card didn't fill up.
Problem is, the Safestrap menu. If I tell ROM Manager to make a backup, it will only work if I'm physically sitting there and can press the Menu key to get into recovery, otherwise the phone boots like normal and nothing happens.
Additionally, it stores it on the INTERNAL SD card, which can only hold 1-2 backups anyway, I need to use my external 32GB MicroSD.
So is this possible with the Droid 4, to get ROM Manager to "play nice" with Safestrap? I know it lets you select the Droid 4 from the recovery flashing menu, and just tells you that you have to flash it manually (which I did). But if I have to manually trigger recovery, it completely defeats the purpose of an AUTOMATIC backup.
