    Can you have a Gingerbread ROM as your UNSAFE and an ICS ROM as your safe? Will this mess anything up since they are so different? Thanks! :biggrin:

    Yes, but only the ICS roms that are compiled to run off the Gingerbread system.... So you can't have the ICS leak or any ROMs built off the ICS leak running on your phone.

    Your "unsafe" is typically the stock system....it's "unsafe to mess with it". Your "safe" is for the ROM you want to use/play with. You can install a gingerbread based ROM on the "safe" system if your unsafe system is still Gingerbread.

    You can install an ICS leak based ROM on your safe system ONLY if your safe system is the ICS leak.

    I'm smiling and nodding while reading this because most of it is Greek to me. :)

    I have rooted stock on unsafe, and I was planning on installing AOKP's ICS on safe. Are you saying that this won't work? Just making sure...

    You can install the AOKP ICS that is NOT built off the leak on your "unsafe" side. This limits it's abilities as it is still running off the Gingerbread kernel (which your device has).

    You should be able to find two different AOKP builds.....one will just be AOKP for the Bionic and one will be AOKP -ICS Leak for the Bionic. You can only use the standard one, not the leak one.

    Gotcha. Maybe I'll just stick with Eclipse for now. :) Thanks so much for taking the time to help! I really appreciate it!

    Another question

    So my Razr is running official OTA ICS. I have safestrap installed and I have done a nandroid backup. I have a backup from before when I was on GB. So since my UNSAFE is ICS, I can't flash in safe mode my GB nandroid backup? Not a big deal, just want to know if my nandroid backups from GB are worth saving. Thanks!
