When backing up a rom installed on the safe system should the primary system be included in the backup? I assume not but I wasn't sure.
Its a matter of preference. If you do, it will give you the choose to restore the original systm when restoring your safe rom.
Thanks. I made a backup of it before switching to safe mode so I have one.
Timmy, and I'll ask tuck mobile too, but I was just reading over op and wondering if the cache wipe can't just be removed from the steps. It's not a big deal in any case, just an extra step, as I stopped doing it when I looked and saw that /cache was formatted as part of the wipe data/factory reset step. Just a thought. Anything to streamline procedures.
Thanks to you guys for keeping this reference going!

Yeah, if you do a factory reset it formats data/cache and dalvik cache. So those steps are not needed. Some habits are hard to break.
I only included that extra step so that n00bs will see how to do cache/dalvik wipes. Totally unnecessary, but very instructional.
It is worth it to keep every bit of info in there for the noobs, since thats who the guide is for.
Hey guys. I have been off the scene for awhile, after up(?)grading from a Droid X to an iPhone.
Anyway, I am trading my iPhone for a Bionic (after returning to my senses!), and I have a few questions about this process:
1)do you still have to do a separate root, or is that part of the safestrap process?
2)is the sbf method still used to return to full stock - or was it ever used for bionic?
3)has this process been known to 'brick' bionics, via either fubar'ed installs or other reasons?
Greatly appreciate answers to these. And if this kind of question makes me a n00b, then so be it :-D
All great questions. I could answer them half-assed, but instead I will let the man (timmy10shoes) address them appropriately.

Question 1) you need to root separately, google moto-fail. Safestrap is just a alternate recovery like bootstrap but with dual-boot capabilities.
2)Its called a fxz now. Pretty much the same as a sbf. You can use rsd lite to flash the fxz or use moto-fastboot to flash any image individually
3) As with any root procedures there is always a change you could soft-brick your device. That being said 99% of issues are user errors.
Timmy10shoes speaks the truth. When you're ready to take the plunge, checkout my n00b guide here.
