    [ THIS IS ONLY FOR THOSE USING THE NEW ICS LEAK FROM MOTO (.200 / .206) ]

    [ After installation boot into recovery and make a backup (doesn't need Webtop) while in Non-Safe mode to have a full 1st and 2nd system backup for disaster recovery. ]

    ** KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING WITH THIS -- VERY HARD TO RECOVER IF YOU ARE USING THE LEAK. **

    Instructions for Use

    Whats NEW in 2.00:
    - All new touch-based routines to handle the menu, home, back & search buttons on the front of the phone using the new ICS build from Motorola.
    - Code-base updated to CWRecovery 5.5.0.4.

    KNOWN ISSUES:
    - USB Sharing in Recovery isn't working correctly.
    - The new touch controls aren't perfect. I might need to tweak handling a bit as it might take 2 taps sometimes to register and then sometimes 1 tap registers twice it seems.


    Entry to recovery via Splashscreen on boot-up. The screen stays up for around 8-10 seconds and if you hit the menu button, it takes you to Safestrap Recovery.

    SPECIAL THANKS TO:


    • Koush who develops such a GREAT recovery system and the makes the source available for others to use.
    • The Atrix dev team who I pulled the internal/external SD card support from
    • The Defy dev team that originally developed the Bootmenu source which I stripped down and used for the Splashscreen.

    As always, let me know what you think!

    Dr. Bliss already has a root method devised for the Moto ICS leaks. However, he wants to hold off releasing it till the Motorola releases ICS (understandably).

    i installed the apk on leak .206 but when i try opening, it says "Unfortunately, Safestrap has stopped." and closes. Any idea why this would happen?

    EDIT: Ah. probably need Root to use this.

    I know its hard to wait, but theres a much better chance the root exploit won't be patched in the official ICS this way

    Lol I just had some bug I never experienced. I went to install this app, but I couldn't. I could only 'cancel' when it got to the install or cancel prompt. I thought maybe it was corrupted or I had a bad ICS install. But I restarted the phone and all is fine. Maybe it's nothing wrong with the app at all. But again it's the first time it happened to me, so just posting this in case others experience it.

    Also, it doesn't seem to like going into CWR while charging. It left me a blank lit-up black screen.

    How can i restore a fully backup?
    Error while restoring systemorig! And after the system doesn't start. Advanced restore: system, data and cache works. Only systemorig error.

    My phone doesn't start, with fastboot can restore, but no more root in ics:-(

    SafeStrap 2.0 is for those using the Leaked ICS ROM...your "unsafe" system is now ICS .206. So using Safestrap 2.0 I assume you are on the leak? There are no ROMs made for running in "Safe". Hashcode is working on making CM9/ICS for Leaked ICS that will work but nothing currently will work. All the current ROMs are made to work off the stock phone's Gingerbread 2.3.6 build .219.

    Has everyone a complete stock backup with safestrap 2.0 restored?
    I made a backup with this and by restore systemorig comes "error while restore systemorig!" The system was damage and i restore the ics leak with flash parts of fastboot files from gingerbread 219 and new install the ics leak. But root was lost:-(

    Am I understanding this correctly? Currently, you can not boot up the phone in Safe Mode, because there are no ROMS that will work for it yet?

    I ask, because I recently got the ICS Verizon OTA Update for my Droid 4, so I don't have the leaked version, but the official one. I found that Safestrap 2.0 installs and works fine regardless, and I was able to make a backup. But the real reason I wanted it was because I found a website that offered a ported version of Google Now for ICS in the form of a zip file that you could flash onto ur ICS rom, and I was trying to flash it onto my stock one. But sounds like u can't boot into stock in Safe Mode :(

    When I posted that, yes you understood it correctly. Now there are a few ROMs you can install to the Safe System. Safe Strap however will not allow you to flash a .zip to the stock 'unsafe" system. You'd have to choose a ROM to flash to the "Safe" side and then flash the Google Now to that, not to the stock ROM that resides on the "unsafe" side.

    And "leak" .217 is the official .217 OTA.

    This http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-4-roms/218831-rom-deodexed-debloated-ics-217-a.html is a deodexed and debloated stock .217 ROM you could use...

    Or you could use Bootstrap (not SafeStrap) to flash on top of the stock ROM without a safe/unsafe setup.

    :icon_eek: ....Wow! Thanks so much for such a fast and detailed response. I would never have figured all of that out, or known about that ROM. I appreciate the help. :biggrin:

    I got it to work. I installed that ROM, which is really cool by the way. Its nice to have a version of the stock ROM without all the bloatware. Runs a lot better. And, flashing over that ROM worked. I have Google Now!!! dancedroid:icon_ banana: Sooooo happy. :biggrin: Thanks again so much
