    DEVICE SPECIFIC SAFESTRAP CHANGES:



    • [05/15] (3.73) Bugfix for dual SD card UMS mounting and pull in TWRP changes
    • [04/14] (3.72) Mostly other device updates
    • [01/15] (3.71) Code cleanup
    • [01/15] (3.71) Minor hijack updates
    • [12/18] (3.70) Mount cleanup during hijack / debugging output
    • [12/18] (3.70) Splashscreen: Instant stock boot key (needs to be set for Moto OMAP4's still)
    • [11/13] (3.65) recovery init.rc cleanup
    • [11/13] (3.65) fix updater build for cm 10.1 and 10.2
    • [09/20] (3.60) Better handling for virtual images > 2gb
    • [09/20] (3.60) Much improved block device handling
    • [09/20] (3.60) Bugfix in script translation
    • [09/20] (3.60) hijack / init.rc tweaks
    • [09/06] (3.53) Fixed mass_storage in recovery (via Mount menu)
    • [09/06] (3.53) Added Webtop to partition backup list (optional)
    • [09/06] (3.53) New virtual systems created will be 640mb (got reset 600mb)
    • [09/06] (3.53) Fixed file selector when changing from internal to external storage (previously location wouldn't update)

    • [09/04] (3.51) Disabled screen blank while creating a rom-slot
    • [09/04] (3.51) Fixed openrecovery script processing for stock slot to re-inject hijack after .zip install (cmupdater on stock now works)
    • [08/30] (3.50) If running a new CM10.1/CM10.2 ROM (08/30 or later) you *should* be able to install Safestrap and update the recovery w/o having to go back to stock. If Safestrap shows "recovery not installed" while you're on a ROM-slot, then that ROM hasn't been updated and it won't work. Swap back to stock ROM and update Safestrap from there.
    • [08/30] (3.50) Worked on stock ROM flashing and *should* work with CM10.1/CM10.2 builds on or after 08/30 *WILL NOT WORK WITH OLDER ROMs.*

    • [08/30] (3.50) Complete re-write against TWRP 2.6 base (up from version 2.2.2.1): TWRP changelog for reference
    • [12/29] (3.11) Allow use of custom updater-binary in .zip files for flashing on stock ROM (virtual slots still use prebuilt updater-binary in recovery).
    • [12/29] (3.11) BUGFIX: Fixed fake flash error at the end of a .zip install. (No real error, .zip installs fine)
    • [12/29] (3.10) Early support for booting custom ROMs on stock partitions.
    • [12/29] (3.10) Enable flashing to stock ROM *BE CAREFUL -- NEW FEATURE -- STILL TESTING*
      • After .zip installations, nandroid restore or system wipe on the stock ROM: the current Safestrap files are restored to the system partition (Doesn't include the APK in /data -- so if you're restoring an old backup, be sure to update the Safestrap APK)
      • During the Safestrap files restore a check is done to be sure there are minimal files on /system to re-enter Safestrap
    • [12/29] (3.10) New virtual system partitions will be 640mb (closer match to stock RAZR/D4)
    • [12/27] (3.07) Bugfix: missed some changes in Safestrap 3.06
    • [12/26] (3.06) Bugfix/Update for JB4.1 OTA for DroidRAZR (Non-JB devices can also use)
    • [10/17] (3.05) Fixed SD card / emmc sharing in recovery (UMS)
    • [10/17] (3.05) Fixed recovery installation/removal from ROM-slots
    • [10/14] Updated to v3.04 BETA.
    • [10/14] Recovery is now based off TWRP 2.2.2.1 (fully featured touch-based recovery)
    • [10/14] Can create up to 4 Virtual ROM-slots to flash ROMs to and when "Active" ALL TWRP functions affect that ROM-slot (For example: Flashing .zips, Backup and Restore)
    • [10/14] Nearly instant swapping from ROM to ROM
    • [10/14] User selectable data partition sizes during ROM slot creation: 1GB, 2GB or 3GB
    • [10/14] ROM slots are saved on the internal emmc space so that preinstall and webtop partitions are no longer used and shouldn't break OTAs.
    • [10/14] Charging in recovery
    • [10/14] Supports "Reboot Recovery" from Android OS
    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:

    • The entire TWRP team who has built an AMAZING recovery system.
    • The testers which have helped in past and present versions of Safestrap, knowing that it could mean they brick their devices.

    As always, let me know what you think!

    So happy! I'm going to use this to replace Webtop with Ubuntop. Hopefully all goes well.

    Hey bro, I used Motofail and I've installed Safestrap. Everything is working GREAT! But I would like to know if I should enable the "Safe System" before redownloading my favs. Like SetCPU, Titanium Backup, Rommanger, Root Explorer, Rom Toolbox and Terminal Emulator?

    Oh! Never mind. I Just answered my own question. Just downloaded All of them except Rom Manager Because I have Safestrap & Rom Manager isn't needed at the moment. All of the others are working fine.

    I'm new to this whole Safestrap thing but from what I understand this basically installs a "listener" for the menu button during bootup and if pressed enters Recovery? Then safe mode OFF would be the normal system and safe mode ON would be copy of the entire system that ideally is modified instead of touching the original files? Just trying to make sure I understand what I'm about to do here haha also what exactly are fastboot files? Sound to me like comparable to an SBF. Thanks guys

    You are 100% correct on Safestrap. And Fastboot files are the new SBF.

    Hash! Thanks for working through this. I don't have the balls until there is a full bootstrap method to get me back to 100% stock but we really appreciate all the hard work.dancedroid

    Question: I installed the early Safestrap from Hash's site that was for RAZR but described as safe to use for Droid 4. Is there any reason to update, as it seems fine the way it is right now, and if so, how would I do that? Paranoid about bricking it without fastboot.

    Thanks for any help - much appreciated!

    I downloaded safestrap and clicked it to install, however when i press the Install button nothing happens. I have it checked so i can install apss from unknown sources, what am i missing?

    Yes, I'm rooted and Superuser is set to prompt me for software installs that require root.

    You need to update/install busybox and/or update your su binary.

    I just installed busybox, but i still have the same problem with safestrap. Pressing install does nothing, I've downloaded the latest version four times now. The file is in the download folder of the internal sd card.

    Not quite sure I know the answer.

    Have you tried rebooting after installing busybox? Shouldn't have an effect but may be an answer?

    Does it request root when you install the apk?
