    The OTA is not out yet, but someone mentioned that having safestrap on your system wont prevent OTA updates.

    I didn't think it would be out yet either, but after work today, I got a popup asking me to "install now" or "install later". I assume that's the OTA. I did download the update, yesterday, but I haven't installed it. so maybe the download will cause the pop up?

    Anyways, I just wondered if I need to do something to safestrap (uninstall? disable?), first, before permitting the update... or can I just let it install as things are, right now. (I realize I'll probably loose root, but I'm not sure I need/want it right away again anyways. Although, do you need root to even boot up your phone with safestrap? Or did you only need root to *install* safestrap? I could also try installing that rootkeeper that I've been hearing about.)

    Ya, it looks like it was released today. What i read was it would be soon, so i guess soon is now. Try to install it but be sure to unfreeze all everything. Someone had the update fail because there were apps that were still frozen.

    Well, I decided to give the OTA update a try, today.

    I have safestrap installed, but I'm still running stock on the unsafe system.

    Here's what I did: I installed voodoo rootkeeper, and backed up su. Then I ran titanium backup and backed up everythung. Then I rebooted to the safestrap bootloader menu and did a full backup there. Then I rebooted and told the OTA update to install. The update went fine, but now I don't see the boot menu for safestrap. I ran voodoo rootkeeper to restore root, which seems to have worked... but it keeps showing me the option to restore root. ('Device rooted' and 'root permission granted' are unchecked. But apps that need root seem to work.) Anyways, I suppose when I get time by a real computer, I'll try unrooting with droid4utility and re-rooting and re-installing safestrap...

    Anyways, just wanted to give people an idea of what might happen with safestrap and the OTA update...

    How do I backup?

    I have safestrap installed. When I hit menu it takes my screen to a hat icon but I can't go anywhere from there...

    So far setup has been much easier than when I had D2.

    So I just want something to make Nandroid backups so I'm trying to grasp all of this so bear with me. I want to use Safestrap for D4, not Clockwork Mod? I'm new to this whole Boot/Safestrap thing because I used Clockwork mod to make backups back on my Droid 1.

    Clockwork mod recovery is IN Safestrap. Safestrap is just a program that allows you to get there with this locked bootloader business.

    It was fine last night. I think he requested no mirrors while in beta so it's probably taking a beating :)

    FYI: Any backups made using v2 will not work on v3.

    I mention that because I have my rom nicely set up and in order to update safestrap you have to have safeside disabled, so I thought I could make a backup of the rom & data then install v3 and restore the rom & data. That did not work so I reverted to V2 and restored the backup.

    Eventually when I have the time I will go to V3 because you can easily & quickly swap roms with it.
