    Thanks to dhacker29 and hashcode Jelly bean CM10 no camera or data yet get it here http://rombot.droidhive.com/ROMs/targa/
    I haven't had time to try it yet but from what i have read about it its unofficial and has bugs but that comes with the territory when u have a locked bootloader

    Download JB GAPPS here http://goo.im/gapps/gapps-jb-20120726-signed.zip

    does anyone have a complete install instruction list? I search all around and i do not see a compete steps to root/bootstrap(safestrap) and then install rom instructions. All I see is "just like the other safestraps". I know i can play around, but I played around with my droid 2 which I bricked for a month until a patch came out.

    You have to be in an ICS leak use this to root http://db.tt/1oYf2ZYt
    Just unzip to a folder on desktop then open the folder and click on run.batch after that follow this
    If you want to back up contacts and sms, use an app like Mobile Backup II and if you want to back up apps, use an app like App backup & Restore. Download and install Hashcodes safestrap v2.0 open safestrap and install recovery it should say installed and safe system not active. Reboot phone and at the safestrap splash screen tap the menu button; this will take to CWM recovery and then follow steps below.
    Safestrap instructions and flashing a zip file:

    1. In main menu select backup and restore, select backup, select internal sd or external sd ( I recomend external just in case something happens and you loose everything on internal sd) and it will create a back up. Go back to main menu.
    2. In main menu select Wipe data/factory reset and select yes.
    3. In main menu select Wipe cache and select yes.
    4. In main menu select advanced and select Wipe delvik cache and yes. Go back to main menu.
    5. In main select safe system and toggle safe system and yes. This will turn safe system on and create a backup. Go back to main menu.
    6. Select install zip from sdcard and select choose install zip, scroll to where your zip is (rom if your installing a rom) and select it then select yes. This will flash the zip.
    7. Select go back to go back to main menu and select reboot phone.
    8. Sit back and relax till system is fully loaded and give it about 5 to 10 minutes to settle.
    Congratulations you have just installed safestrap, activated safe system and flashed a zip or rom and good to go. Enjoy :)

    Thanks!!
    Does the safestrap also root?
    Is there any Bionic Rom Versions that will not work(this is how i bricked my droid 2)

    I am not a noob, just want to be cautious on my buddies bionic because Motorola phones have so many peculiarities. There is so little info about the bionic :-(

    Safestrap doesn't root the phone it only gives u a safe way to flash roms that way if it bootloops then u can always recover from a bckup. Use the link in the post above that is razrs edge that will root the phone make sure ur phone is pluged into pc with the latest moto drivers installed run the razrs edge the way I explained and then install all safestrap 2.0 open safestrap and choose install recovery make surebu have a bionic rom downloaded and then turn off the phone and then back on when the safestrap boot logo comes up tap the menu key on the front of phone the one that looks like 4 squares that will take u to the safestrap menu then follow the instructions in the post above

    The main advantages for getting Jelly Bean we will be lacking. So it is pointless to me to install a buggy rom not much more useful than ICS. This is basically a Jelly Bean system on top of an ICS kernel and radio.

    Yeah you probably get Google Now to somewhat function but you can do the same within ICS. I currently have Google Now on my ics leak. Will likely never be as good as the real thing. http://www.droidforums.net/forum/showthread.php?t=218277

    Project butter is probably the most important addition from Jelly Bean. But your not gonna get that either.

    About the only decent features you will get is the better widget management and a more interactive notification pull down.

    Until we get Jelly Bean officially, get our bootloader unlocked, or find a way to load unsigned kernels then it is pointless to me.

    I have it set up and playing with it. I would love to run for awhile, but I can't get data to connect. On WiFi now. Going to try to get data by toggling between gsm and every other network mode for awhile. Wish I could get it going cause I love it so far and could definitely see using for a good while if I could just get data up.

    They never did get the ICS ROMS working with data and the camera, did they? That's kind of a deal breaker for me. I'll just stay on ICS and hope they get offline voice and maps working on that instead. :D

    We have ics leaked builds for the bionic now. This means the custom ics roms will be very stable because they will actually have an ics kernel and radio instead of running on top of gingerbread components.
