    @orangechoochoo ... I know you have probably done a lot of this, but give it a shot.


    First, make sure that you do not have another Bootstrap APK installed.


    Download safestrap for the D4 from here (preferably on wifi or to the pc transferred to the phone)


    Double check to make sure you have apps from unknown sources checked


    Double check that SU and busybox are up to date


    Find the file (something other than Astro, if possible, such as Root Explorer)


    Tap the file and see if it will install.

    I did everything you suggested. I have no other bootloader. I unrooted using the droid4 utility because the superuser app installed with that utility would not tell me if I'm up to date on the binary, it would just say it's checking and that's it. I then rooted with motofail and it gave me the green supersuer app that says the binary is updated but I just press "that was fun, do it again". Version 3.0.3.2.

    I then downloaded busybox installer from jrummy and installed busybox 1.19.4. Before doing this i used es explorer and saw busybox already in system/bin. I installed busybox anyways. I also installed it in system/xbin.

    Rebooted, found the file via es explorer, clicked install, nothing. I unchecked install from unknown sources and tried the install. It prompted me to check my settings so i checked unknown sources, it gave the warning, and i clicked install and still nothing. When i tap the button it doesn't "glow" for that split second but the cancel button glows when i press it and cancels as it's supposed to.

    Ok, in case if anyone else is brand new to Safestrap, like I am: DON'T toggle the safe system to on, unless you flash a ROM. (right?) If you have Safe System enabled, it'll try to boot to the second android OS you DON'T have (since you didn't flash one.) So you'll have to hold the Power and Volume Down buttons for 10-20 seconds in order to restart. then push the menu button to get back to Safestrap to toggle the Safe System to disabled again. (Whew!)

    Anyways, I just assumed that the "Safe System" was a "safe" copy of my original, where I could play around and mess stuff up - but instead, it was nothing. Just wanted to share the info, in case if anyone finds it helpful.

    Update: when I decided to manually apply the update to 6.13.219 I unrooted the phone and applied the update. Before i rerooted I checked to see if the droid4 utility was updated with the option to install safestrap. Version 0.4 has that option enabled (version 0.3 has that option removed) so i installed safestrap and voila, it worked!

    Now time to try out those roms!

    Is it safe to allow the OTA update that verizon wants to push to my phone if I've got safestrap installed?
