    FAQ::
    What if we want to go back to bootstrap?
    Do I need to uninstall bootstrap to use safestrap?
    What are the benefits?

    We had a post over at XDA that I believe many users have questions about over here on DF.

    Hashcode, take it away!




    Also, You CANNOT use backups from bootstrap on safestrap. They are not interchangeable.

    So right now im using the tweaked bootsrap. So if i go to safestrap can i flash all the roms then. Im running the steel droid rom and so far ive flashed alot of themes using bootstrap with no issues. So should i just stay where I am or will I eventually need to switch to safestrap.

    Most ROMS you will be able to flash. CM7, the latest Steel Droid is safestrap compatible, Maverick is compatible, the Eclipse port, etc. The themes will still work on safestrap too.
    If you are perfectly fine where you are at, that's fine! Nothing wrong with it. IMO, safestrap just lives up to its name. Safer.

    I havent had any issues with bootstrap yet, so ill probably stay with it. Once the ICS rom gets all taken care of you think it will just be safestrap flashable?

    so if u already flashed with bootstrap all u have to do is unstall the app install the safestrap and it should just switch like that not just go over the bootstap recovery thing and conflict and screw up my phn?
