    If I install SS2, and the CM9 ROM, then flash back to a more stable ROM, for everyday use, will I still be able to use Chrome or is that ROM related & not kernel related?

    It currently only works on the kexec CM9. Chrome only runs in ICS and requires drivers which can only be compiled for the 3.0.8 kexec kernel. It won't work on any other rom at the moment.

    Regarding safestrap 2.0, can I install this over my current version of safestrap?

    We wipe when installing a rom, so its not in the app drawer, but does installing this version overwrite the current recovery?

    I only installed version 2.0 on a another droid 3 that was freshly rooted.

    Uninstall any previous safestrap, then install 2.0.

    When they start building JB ROMs for the D3, yes.

    Ok, so boot into non safe (that's where safestrap is in app drawer), uninstall safestrap recovery, install ss 2.0 and im good to go?

    All my backups should still be intact, correct?
