    Safestrap or Regular BootStrap?

    Which one is better? I'm using what looks like koush boot strapper right now but should I use only Safestrap? Which one is better?
    I plan on using the ICS rom later on once it gets better or a new liberty rom. Atm I'm just trying to backup and remove bloat until
    the new roms come out.

    Thanks

    You can tell by my signature what I recommend.

    FWIW you cannot use both. One or the other.

    I thought long and hard about the same thing, came up with this. BOOTSTRAP IF you find a rom you like and stick with it awhile (until it updates, or u want a change). You aren't one of the first people to flash a new rom. You don't mess with alpha builds, maybe well tested betas. You rarely experiment. You are willing to read before you flash.
    SAFESTRAP IF u bounce from rom to rom. Gotta have a build the minute its released. Have bricked a phone more than a couple times. DO like to experiment...DONT like to read. Since I fit into the bootstrap category, that's what I use. Only thing I wish I had (and its a big one) is the ability to boot CWR from off. Plus I like my storage "clean", don't like files I never use just sitting around. Call it ocd? Just my 2 cents.?

    Safestrap gives you a splash screen on boot. Helpful if you are bootlooping. Just press menu key.
