    Alright folks, I am surprised this hasn't been discussed before, Hashcode has made a safe strap for the D3 which allows you to Dual Boot ROM's, it has also been tested on the Bionic although to my knowledge the Bionic is not fully supported - besides the Dual Booting this app also lets you boot into Safe Strap (CW Based Recovery) directly from the stock bootloader of the Bionic all you need to do is open the application and select "install recovery" then power down and boot into the stock bootloader by pressing both up and down on the volume rocker and the power key at the same time, you will then go down to BP Tools which will boot into SafeStrap CW recovery - from here you can restore any backups you have previously made, flash ROM's, themes, all the things you can do via BootStrapper CW recovery


    Best of all this can save you from having to FXZ back to stock to be able to access recovery

    Big props to Hashcode for his work

    This is really handy. I figured this out as well when I was trying to dual boot into CM7. Works like a charm.

    Pretty sure if your bootlooping after a system wipe/factory reset you'd be out of luck

    Forgive my ignorance but can someone explain "dual boot" to me please? Does it mean I dont have to restore a backup if I'm running two different ROMs in Safe and Non-safe modes? I'm just guessing, so don't shoot if I'm way off... Thanks guys

    Yeah this needs some sort of tutorial :p

    I am running stock deodexed debloated 5.7.893 rom. I had it loaded in the non safe could not flash zips to I went to safe (seems backwards to me but I am a noob) and flashed a Th3ory rom. So ok dual boot works and it is nice, but what I really want is the same rom on both. When I restored a back up of my stock rom created with safestrap 1.04 it restored but would not boot up. Went back to safe and everything is ok.

    I want to get my stock one set up on both so I can play with flashing some mods but I am not sure how to go about doing it. I assume the restore should have worked but it didn't :(
