    Ok, also. (Sorry for all the comments) I just disabled safe mode and that allowed me to restart my phone. It finally turned on. Thankfully. I'm glad there's people out there who are much smarter than I am it this sort of stuff. But I guess what better way to learn than screwing up and having to fix it. lol
    Not sure what else to do though. It looks like everything is running normally. I'm still rooted, because I have superuser access, but that's all I know.
    Now i just have to reactivate this phone, because I switched when I thought I bricked it. I was freaking out so bad. lol

    So, what do I need to do now then?
    I want to try again, but I'd prefer to do it supervised. lol :p

    You have a rom in mind? Follow the OP exactly and you will be fine.

    I was thinking Eclipse 2.2, just because I've heard so much about it, but I don't know. This is honestly my first time rooting and I've only ever seen one other person with a rooted phone before. He had an HTC, but I don't remember what ROM he had on it. So I don't know what my phones going to look like after I install this ROM. Is there any editing or additional steps I'm going to have to do after I install it to make it functional? Im not sure what I wanna do just yet. Plus, I can't seem to find where to download Eclipse at either.

    If you are unsure....wait. Read about it and reread more about it.
    Eclipse is fully functional. Make sure to download the version go to with your system version. (902=Eclipse v2.2). Once you flash a rom, you will have to set up your phone like it came out of the box again. You can use Titanium backup to help backup your apps and data. Make sure you have set google to store your contacts too.

    I think I have version 902? When I go under system settings: about phone, it has a 902 in there somewhere. I'm assuming that's what I'm supposed to be looking at? I've heard a lot of good about this ROM, but I'm just worried once I'm loaded, I won't know how to get rid of it if I don't like it. That, or backing my stuff up wrong and losing it. I have a lot of contacts that I definitely cannot afford to lose, and it would just be a pain to have to re-install all my apps.

    Ok. Go into your contact app and settings. Change storage from verizon assistant to google. Your apps are saved by google, but not the app data. Use titanium backup to save app data. If u follow the op, u will have no problem going back if you dont like the rom. Safestrap is a beautifully design program and should not let you mess things up too badly. Come back with more questions.

    A million thanks to Eye_dea and timmy10shoe for all their help, time and filies. My Bionic has been brought back to life because of them.

    ? Safestrap

    Maybe I missed something in this thread. I rooted my Bionic .902. Installed safestrap version 1.07 for the bionic. Did the recovery for the backup. Now when I try to ENABLE safestrap the phone won't boot up? When I disable it it boots up fine. I guess my question is do I have to install a different rom for this to boot up in safemode? Thanks, Howie:blush:

    Safestrap can be enabled yes, and the safe system can be enabled without a rom installed, but the safe system cannot boot without a ROM installed, because there is nothing to boot.

    I did all this last night n it worked great but the bionic's ics roms suck pretty bad. Could barely hold 4g.stock runs great. I had to give it a try but it was worthless. I stand with the fact that rooting is pointless nowadays

    Rooting sure isnt pointless, With one click I can restore all my apps and data with ease. I can also do what I want, when I want. If you arent hell bent on ICS roms, try out eclipse 2.2 for bionic....

    ICS runs great for me. Rooting for me is essential, I like custom roms and themes.

    Eclipse runs much better than stock and the battery life is much better

    I will seriously give it a try later today. You wouldn't have a download link by any chance, would you?
