There is just a bit too much info on this phone for my brain too many places to go to get it too, thankfully a lot of sites point to here instead of duplicating info. But after reading about 70% of the Droid 4 posts in the hacks and Roms forums, I still have no idea what a safeboot and fastboot are, or the difference. the best I can figure out is the moto phones are configured like a chromebook, dual partitions for the OS, allowing for updates to be made on one without affecting the other, then having the ability to switch between them during bootup. however on the D4 it sounds like there are other differences. let me go read that post you linked and I'll start a thread if I need more info. Thanks again. (I do know the difference between a dump and a Rom, I was looking for a flashable after I posted that reply, I am guessing the ICS leaks have been applied using a nandroid style install from what I have gathered from the other forum posts)
I am big on modifying Roms to suit my needs as far as installed apps go, I don't like excess as far as apk's are concerned, although I install a lot, only the ones I'll actually use. so I was happy to see this as it will be useful in the future (and I inferred that I would be installing 211, as this was the first thread I saw about it I was happy)
fastboot is a low level tool on the phone that allows programming from the computer. you need the latest motorola drivers installed though MOTODEV > Tools & Testing > USB Drivers
to enter fastboot hold down power and both vol keys, when menu appears use vol- to scroll and vol+ to select and program with the tool on the pc
to reset phone hold power and vol- for like 4 seconds
oh and safestrap is like a dual partition thing for adding roms, if you dont have it installed dont worry about it now.
