    Its told to never use quick toggle as it can ruin safestrap possibly. About only time is when you have issues with toggling safestrap.


    And the files you are deleting are not the system files of the ROM in that folder. The only files in that folder are backups.

    If you want a blank safe side, then just wipe and format the safe side in safestrap recovery. And install your new ROM. Which if you install a new ROM on this side you should do these steps anyways.

    NEVER wipe and format the unsafe side using safestrap recovery (not that it should let you. It should be disabled in unsafe mode) you will brick your phone. As wiping the unsafe side would also delete safestrap at the same time.

    ok thanks for the response.

    I know that I was deleting backups of the data from the safe/unsafe sides, I thought that there was more to the backup of the safe side than just data. I guess I can't do what I am looking to do b/c of the lack of a "stock" zip to flash on the safe side.

    I've been looking fora stock to add to the safe side but there is not right now. If you have nothing on the safe side you have no ROM.


    A fresh brand new install of safestrap also shows you that all you get on the safe side is a custom ROM. If you try to load safe side with out doing a ROM install you end up with a blank black screen and the phone does nothing

    Correct. Do NOT update in ROM manager. May not do anything, but also may bork everything.

    So can you help me clear up a couple of things? I tried installing safe strap and a new ROM yesterday and ended up destroying my phone. lol I just now got it back - luckily I had a nandroid backup from just before my attempt.

    1. Is it correct that safestrap allows you to essentially have two ROMs simultaneously while allowing them both to access your data?

    2. Can you explain the difference between safe and non-safe? - TBH, anything with the word non-safe sort of scares me, and understanding it a bit better might help.

    Thanks for the write-up and thanks in advance for any advice.
    Thank God I never changed my old Alltel unlimited data plan.

    So if I understand correctly... Unless you screw something up when installing your ROM and have trouble booting, you should always be able to get back to your unsafe (original) backup quite easily, correct?

    Is there an advantage to using this over Bootstrap?

    I found that installing it on my sd card via card reader was so much easier for me.
    I also downloaded the ROMs and uploaded them via the card reader as well.
    I have all the files in a briefcase on my desktop
    RSD lite vrz 902 files as well, just in case of have a problem everything of need to restore my phone is a mouse click away
