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!

All that will happen is that you be booted into the stock recovery.

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

your options in the stock recovery are very limited you can factory reset but you cannot nand.

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.
