Default [Q] Non-Safestrap Custom ROMs - ICS/GB?

Since we have SBF files now, and I apologize if this is the wrong area to post, but will we be able to get an official Clockworkmod Recovery so that we can install clean ROMs without needing to use Safestrap and running dual systems?

I am willing to test any developments on my D4 given that we can now flash the SBF should it brick.

Also on a somewhat side tangent, has anyone figured out a way to mod the system to allow apps2sd naturally like on the D2/D3 instead of the "media area vs app storage area"?

Thanks in advance everyone.

I am waiting for a response for this thread as well.the safestrap method has created issues I really don't want to deal with on a regular basis. I thought maybe once the sbf were out there we would have clockwork method out there fairly quick. I appreciate all the hard work hash & others put in to problem solving etc..J am so looking forward to a clockwork option..

I have read that people are using the razr bootstrap without issue. I have not tested it personally.

Someone posted in the eclipse ROM thread stating a flash with cwm of it. I asked what cwm they used but no reply yet

What issues? You could always use bootstrap, as others have said.

Personally, I really like using safestrap. Stock ROM when I need the phone to work, whatever rom I like otherwise (Though AOKP is getting pretty close to perfect now. Going to check up on CM9 soonish...)

What bootstrap is available? I haven't seen a thread with info on it yet.

Bootstrap for RAZR apparently works, although there are some issues at least:
