EDIT: Sorry, OK. I've done a normal boot in Fastboot, to no avail. Now I tried toggling safe mode. It backed the phone up. It couldn't back up date because the data.img (or something like that) wasn't found. It said then SAFE SYSTEM: DISABLED. Confused, i rebooted, and it still kicked me into safestrap (or cwr). So I am trying to toggle safe system again, if that doesn't work, then i'll try restoring.
If restoring doesn't work, I'll attempt to do SBF.
Hello,I'm sorry that you're having such a bad experience with Safestrap. I've never heard of this happening before, but I should probably add a way to undo the hijack from the recovery.There are only 2 triggers which cause the phone to enter recovery:1. Bp tools boot2. The phone thinks that the menu key is being pressed during the startup. (I know you're not actually pressing it)You could try a Power + M boot and select "ap tools" and see if for some reason your phone was stuck in bp tools mode.Or if you have adb access, from recovery you can:1. Mount /systemorig from the mounts menu2. Adb shell3. Mv /systemorig/bin/logwrapper /systemorig/bin/logwrapper.bak4. Mv /systemorig/bin/logwrapper.bin /systemorig/bin/logwrapper(My phone is capitalizing those commands, use lower case)Note: if you typo those commands there's a very good chance you'll be soft bricked and need to fastboot restore the main /systemGood luck!(And thanks to the droidforums guys for hitting me up on twitter.
wow i didn't understand a word of that. haha. but thanks for replying. at least I know now that there isn't much I can do besides a wipe and that you're aware of the issue. I'm just going to wipe and start anew with the SBF link provided on the first page of this thread. I'll let you guys know how it goes
The craziness is over! Lol. I SBF'd back to normal and everything works. Of course, this won't deter me from trying to flash a rom with safestrap again XD haha. Thanks again for all of the help guys. You certainly shed light on this process to a newbie. Droidforums will be my #1 spot from now on, trumping even Android Central's forums
