    I believe that you can also use bootstrap recovery. It's not as good as safestrap because it doesn't use slots but I am pretty sure you can accomplish what I think you are asking. That is, you can erase the stock rom and install a custom rom that has all the space that stock has. The only drawback is that it's not as 'safe' as safestrap. If your custom rom is hosed then you have to reset your phone with fxz.

    I personally use bootstrap. I've used and loved safe strap but it didn't not meet my requirements as far as space. I struggled to run a rom slot at 3gb with out running out of Space. I have too many apps. I'm a appaholic lol

    Anyways both recoveries in my opinion are awesome. Safestrap is definitely the way to go especially for "noobs" to rooting,ROMs and flashing in general.

    Rooted Moto Droid Bionic
    Running: ICS 6.7.246
    With Apex Launcher




    Get dropbox i need more space:

    The problem with Bootstrap compared to Safestrap is that bootstrap doesn't let you boot into recovery mode from the per button out turning on the phone. Its only accessible from the bootstrap app itself. Safestrap installs a splash menu for the user so you don't need to open the app every time you wish to boot into recovery. Just restart the phone and hit search when the splash menu comes up.

    Why is there a 3gb limit on the ROM slot?

    Firstly because no one has the space to hold 5 roms + the zip files for said roms + anything else they have on a mere 16 gigs of space. Secondly what ROM are you attempting to install that requires MORE than 3 gigs....
