    Help! I had a huge *whoops* moment

    So I was getting ready to flash a new rom, and decided to delete some un-needed files off my sdcard. Well i guesed it was a slip of hand, but somehow everything on my sd card got deleted.

    I'm worried, is my Safestrap still usable?! My phone didnt crash or anything, but i'm too afraid to reboot incase safestrap cant launch and it bricks or something. Does any critical safestrap data get installed on the sdcard?! I checked the safestrap app (3.11) and it said I was installed, and I hit installed again just to be sure.

    Am I safe? (no pun intended)

    I can't say for sure, but I can't imagine safestrap installs to the external SD card. I've been able to boot to safestrap with NO external SD card. Just make sure it still says it's installed within the app and that you have Busybox.

    If the rom he's currently on is on the SD card, wouldn't the phone not function right now?

    If u r on the newest safe strap its still there because its already installed.. all u deleted was the apk itself therefore all u have to is simply boot into safe strap go to mount.. then mount your SD card whole plugged into a CPU. Download ROM and gapps on cpu place them on the SD card .. once they are on the SD card unmount and install ROM and gapps from there also.. if u did not wipe your system and ROM.. phone should boot fine

    Question.. Safe strap is running on my maxx however I don't see it in my app drawer.. I had 3.07. How do I get it to reappear in my apps drawer in case I want to totally delete/remove safe strap? I can see all my safestrap folders in "Files" but just not the app icon itself in the app drawer? Can I just reinstall the apk? Also to update to 3.11? What's the best way?

    Are you on stock or are you running a ROM? You won't see the app on a ROM. Only on stock. If your on stock and you can't see the app then you should be able to just reinstall the app and open it and it should recognize that you have safestrap recovery installed. To update to 3.11 from 3.07 you should be able open the safestrap app, uninstall recovery, uninstall the app, install the new safestrap app, open it and install recovery.

    Kwyrt..you seem really knowledgeable about Safestrap.. So someone in the maxx section wants to update to JB leak, but is getting the SS splash screen. He is on .211 rooted, but I don't know if he is on a Custom ROM..he can't see SS in his app drawer..but when he goes into Files he sees the SS folders...when he powers down the splash screen shows up and is disabled..is it safe to just delete the SS folder?
