Default (Q)Stock Rooted 4.3 Recovery?

What happens if I reboot to recovery mode via Xposed Framework's custom boot menu? I'm afraid to do anything because of this bootloader penitentiary.

Plus I think I'm gonna wait a week or so to Safestrap. I sure would love to have a nandroid!

Yes. Safestraps recovery is like TWRP.
It runs seperately from the stock recovery so as not to hork the phone.

You can't do much in a stock recovery.

You can install a custom recovery called safestrap if you want, but right now you can't nandroid.

i used to have a gs4 with safestrap, and unless somethings changed i dont think it has ever had the ability to nand backup. Correct me if im wrong though.

You can nandroid on each system. You make a backup just like normal, but it only backs up the slot that you want it to. It doesn't backup every slot at once.
