    I followed the instructions. I even made a backup on my UNSAFE side. Then I attempted to toggle to my SAFE side. I receive an error here "failed to restore data" or something like that. I have 4GB free, which should be enough to switch, I believe. I am unable to switch to the "SAFE" side. When I reboot, I end up with my default ROM with no user data. I have to then reboot and restore my backup I made in SafeStrap to get everything back.

    What is going wrong here?

    Ill have to comb through post on droidhive and see if can find anything helpful. I personally have never had any issues what so ever with switching between modes or safestrap messing up my unsafe rom (which has always been pure stock).

    But sounds like you might have messed something up along the way and probably be a good idea to FXZ the phone to stock and start over from scratch

    Does my UNSAFE Rom have to be pure stock?

    No it doesn't but its recommended as it would be a pain to update it if you wanted to.

    Yeah if you ever want to update unsafe side to stock ics your process will be twice as long to do if you replace stock rom.

    ok here's a question that I haven't seen asked/answered

    I have the stock 902 ROM running on my unsafe side, I want to flash a zip onto this setup. Before I booted into recovery I deleted everything that was under sdcard/safestrap, assuming that this would prevent it from loading anything up and would just keep things as they were except now I can flash zips. When I switch between safe/unsafe to be able to flash a zip it restores the last custom rom I was running (in this case Gummy 1.0).

    Will using the option to do the quick toggle actually accomplish what I am looking to do here?

    Its told to never use quick toggle as it can ruin safestrap possibly. About only time is when you have issues with toggling safestrap.


    And the files you are deleting are not the system files of the ROM in that folder. The only files in that folder are backups.

    If you want a blank safe side, then just wipe and format the safe side in safestrap recovery. And install your new ROM. Which if you install a new ROM on this side you should do these steps anyways.

    NEVER wipe and format the unsafe side using safestrap recovery (not that it should let you. It should be disabled in unsafe mode) you will brick your phone. As wiping the unsafe side would also delete safestrap at the same time.

    ok thanks for the response.

    I know that I was deleting backups of the data from the safe/unsafe sides, I thought that there was more to the backup of the safe side than just data. I guess I can't do what I am looking to do b/c of the lack of a "stock" zip to flash on the safe side.

    I've been looking fora stock to add to the safe side but there is not right now. If you have nothing on the safe side you have no ROM.


    A fresh brand new install of safestrap also shows you that all you get on the safe side is a custom ROM. If you try to load safe side with out doing a ROM install you end up with a blank black screen and the phone does nothing

    Correct. Do NOT update in ROM manager. May not do anything, but also may bork everything.
