    Hello all. I have some questions but here is some background first.

    I am familiar with rooting, mods, hacks, etc...but the Bionic is the first device I have owned with a crazy encrypted bootloader that one cannot get into recovery manually with a key combo.

    I rooted my Bionic and installed P3's 5.5.893 leak, froze bloat, installed bootstrap and made a couple backups using bootstrap to get into recovery.

    I have been reading about safestrap.....

    1. Safestrap seems like a good option incase I mess with things and get stuck in a bootloop correct?

    2. If I get stuck in a bootloop I can just pull battery, restart device and enter recovery from safestrap boot screen correct?

    3. I realize I need to uninstall bootstrap first before using safestrap, but I have already used bootstrap. Will that mess with safestrap? Do I need to delete the CWR folders on my sdcard first?

    4. Are there specific roms/mods that do not work with safestrap?

    Thank you.

    Well,safestrap is fun(at least,for me)it seems like you have 2 O/S in one computer(just enable it to use your "new' ROM and disable it if you want to go back to your original ROM).Yep,your right,you have to delete the CWR(bootstrap)first.Actually i just tried this safestrap using ICS4 bionic (Alpha7), i don't know if any other ROM can possibly work to this..but i heard from someone that it does work in other ROM.

    Ok thanks. Gonna load it up in a bit. If I bootloop for any reason while safestrap is enabled, I can just restart phone and boot into safestrap recovery with menu key right?
