Question [Q] Safestrap on unlocked bootloader

My phone boot loader is unlocked .installed twrp but I want to use safestrap. I like custom rom but only for tweaking .. so I wanna still use stock rom for normal use.as far as I am read, the only way is safestrap but can't be installed on my samsung galaxy note 3. So is there anyway I can achieve this?? Please. Tell me if possible. I would appreciate it.or is there any other way for using multi rom (2nd rom on sd card or internal) ?? Model no. Sm-n900. I know the credit goes Hashcode. Can't I just get safestrap recovery img, zip, tar anything .Just like normal custom recoveries.or can someone backup recovery.img and upload. Does it work that way? I have the firmware file so I can simply restore it. Just in case of _____.I also have backup.

Looks like you are out of luck. Doesn't seem like any developers have taken it upon themselves to get any dual or multi-boot options working. Only thing would be just do to nandroids to switch between. Not the best option, but better than no option.
Need some help, advice, something fixed? Hit me up on Hangouts @ es0tericcha0s

I thought it is possible cuz even on locked bootloaders its possible. So why not on unlocked ones.if any developer, think of this try to make this it can be easily done. I think...

Sure, theorectically it's possible as there have been a handful of Samsung devices that can dual boot with the help of a custom kernel, but I couldn't find anything, here or otherwise. that they have for the N3.
