So I was installing xposed installer today and instead of writing directly to system I had it go thru recovery to auto install. I thought it would go to the unoffical safestrap, as i'm sure everyone is aware you are locked out of the system recovery on the verizon varient anyways. What happens if I try to install something from there? And more importantly can I flash custom rom that way possibly revert to an earlier android version?

The whole thing caught me by surprise and Im not sure if I can duplicate it haven't tried. Just wanted to hear some thoughts on what this is.

You cannot flash anything from stock recovery except an update.zip file, you cannot flash a custom ROM from there, and you cannot revert to an earlier android version. This information is readily available in a couple of very easy to find threads in the S3 forum.
