    Basically can someone please guide me to the path of rooting my droid 4, I'm so confused by all the stuff I've found.

    There are a few different methods but I have always used jsnweitzel's droid 4 utility. Look for his ICS Only Droid 4 Utility in the hacks section. Makes rooting a piece of cake.

    You don't need safestrap to root. Safestrap is a custom recovery used to flash ROMs.
