    FoxKat, Tis: once rooted, do I NEED to install bootstrap or safestrap? I don't plan on flashing ROMs. What do these do? Are they akin to CWM?

    If you are not going to install any ROMS then install Bootstrap. The absolute only reason I know this is because MattyP said so, lol!!

    Thanks for the quick reply! Another question (how else am I gonna learn). What does it do? I want to root so I can freeze apps with Ti backup, and install that cool cyan boot ani that FoxKat and MattyP worked so hard on.
    Oh, last question...do those 2 ever sleep? :)

    LMAO, really, I am serious... I have been working on that baby since early this morning because of a PM from someone that wanted this info and thought I would put it together for all as a reference.

    Go to second post in this thread...

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-razr-hacks/208787-safestrap-vs-bootstrap.html

    And I really do not think either of them sleep. And Sydman also burns a lot of that midnight oil, I noticed!

    Why would I joke about something like that. The post was well thought out, it's a one-stop-shop, and it's accurate. What more do we need in a stickie? :D

    Thanks FoxKat, that means a lot coming from you! I didn't learn all of that by myself though... it is everything I have learned from DF forums. A special thanks to yourself, MattyP, Sydman, SallyC, 94lt1 and many many others!

    Thx for the link, second post and those following made a lot of sense. My question:

    After reading the difference, would it be prudent to install Bootstrap, keep a copy of a freshly rooted phone in the non-safe "partition" and operate from the other? (or vice versa).

    If not, is it fairly simple to switch from safestrap to bootstrap some point in the future, if I get brave enough to start flashing roms?

    Any advice appreciated!! BTW, Matt's utility is at 1.0 of 1.1 GB, so I am steeling my nerves to try the directions you gave. I think FoxKat is right about this possibly being sticky material!!:D

    Speaking of, I think FoxKat, MattyP, and Sydman have a secret battery calibration that allows them to get more life per charge than the rest of US!!:D

    WOW!!!! That was finer than froghair! Rooted and not bricked!! :icon_ banana:(give me time!!):biggrin:

    @ TisMyDroid: Great write-up in Post #89 of this thread!! Only thing that didn't match was when I ran Voodoo, the last box was not checked. Will try to research this, and figure out why. BIG THANKS for the very concise instructions, was actually easier in my opinion than my first FDR yesterday.:hail::hail:

    Now I see why no one likes Back-up Assistant, it keeps opening every time(3-4 times) the USB connection is opened during the rooting process of Matt's. I will probably use the utilities you recommended in the future and trash VZW's.

    BIG THANKS to Matt as well!!:hail::hail:(hope you like Keystone Lite, it's all I could afford!!)

    Next project? Get FoxKat and MattyP's boot-up ani's runnin'. Seems pretty safe for someone cutting their teeth to the whole root (and rootin' around) process!!:biggrin:

    PS. Went with Bootstrap, figured there gotta be a way to swap it out with Safestrap if I reach the point I wanna cross that bridge.

    JayBogg, this is super! And thank you so much for the confirmation that my instructions were helpful. Sometimes when you know how to do something, trying to explain it doesn't come out so clear so it is good to know that it worked!

    I am with you where I might want to change from bootstrap to safestrap eventually...maybe when there are a few more roms to try out. I am almost certain that you can switch to safestrap after having bootstrap although the process is a bit different than as easy as it was to initially root. I believe FoxKat is the one that can help us with that.

    I agree, I think FoxKat, Sydman and Matty have a secret claibration they are not sharing. They would never admit it though, lol!
