    Quick question. It appears Safestrap is naming my backups and writing the timestamp incorrectly on my backups.

    For example, at 7:49 am Eastern Time, I started a backup. When I rebooted back into my RAZR and looked at the backups, I noticed that they had the correct date (06-26-2012), but the time stamps started at 11:49, so it was about 4 hours later which to me is in GMT.

    Is this normal? Why isn't Safestrap using the correct timezone?

    Thanks!

    So what do you recommend instead of safestrap? Bootstrap or something else I don't know about?

    There is only bootstrap.

    And safestrap is quite fine. I made this guide from the Droid 3. Same product. Also see timmy10shoes guide on this site.

    I have just been thru BRICK hell with my vzw Droid razr. I won't bore you with my troubles, but here's what I learned:

    After you get ICS, use a bootstrap app, "razrtouch5845.apk" (Google to find it). It works with ICS. Make a backup. Use same app to restore. However, I had massive problem with simple restore (don't know why). I finally used "advanced restore", and restored each of the five files in the .xml individually. Had no failures.

    If you don't recognize any of the above, google and read forum postings until you feel you know what you need to do. Months ago, I had Safestrap Recovery on GingerBread OS. I was never able to get a backup to restore. Sorry, I don't know why. All I know is, if you get "failure with system restore" notice, you get a BRICK phone! Then the only thing I could get to work was AP Fastboot recovery using fastboot file. Now there are Fastboot files for ICS posted... again just google it. Theoretically, if you get razrTouch CWM to make backup and restore correctly, you won't need Fastboot.
    Just learn some stuff and my words won't be too mysterious. I am tempted to wish you, "Good Luck". But, it ain't luck. You have to know what to do.

    Might want to mention the note about this version of CWM.

    "Important! This CWM Touch recovery is only and only for the international Droid RAZR, it will NOT work on the Verizon RAZR, so please do not try it out if you have the Verizon device. It also requires your device to be rooted.
    CompatibilityThis hack and the guide below are compatible only and only with the Motorola Droid RAZR, model number XT910. Do NOT try it on the Verizon RAZR which is model number XT912. Itís not compatible with any other device. Check your device model in Settings Ľ About phone."

    It worked for me

    The post where I found "razrtouch5845.apk" said that the developer had just finished an update to support the vzw XT912. I tried it and it worked. No debate intended. Just the facts... MIkee R.

    Oh cool, that post was on the 7th of this month so they could have easily made the changes since then. Good to know it is working for the XT912 too.

    When I try to enter recovery mode when I'm booting up, it seems as if it simply doesn't register me pressing menu. It reacts just fine when I press search, however. I've tried several times now, uninstalled and reinstalled, etc. Any ideas?

    EDIT: Huh, I'm not sure what I did, but it worked.

    I have a concern here. If someone were to gain physical access to my phone, no matter how strong the encryption, or my password, they can just flash it to whatever they want with safestrap? How can I protect myself from physical access if someone were to steal my phone? They may not have any of my data necessarily, but they would be able to use the phone.

    Edit: Sorry reading back this sounds confusing.

    I have safestrap on my razr. Shouldn't the interface be password protected?
