At the top where it says "State", its still showing "Not Installed" and at the bottom, for "Safe System" its still saying "Not Active" and the "reboot to recovery" is grayed out

any suggestions on how to get past this problem? i've tried re-installing multiple times with both 3.71 and 3.70 but it is still not working.

i'm on AT&T, android 4.3 with build MK2

Thanks!

Is there a way to force activate safestrap on re-boot?

Hmmm. I would double check your unknown sources setting & perhaps even try reinstalling SafeStrap. You will get the Safestrap Splash screen upon reboot which gives you the option to continue to booting the phone or to enter Safestrap recovery. It always shows in red as disabled on stock rom and green as enabled on a custom rom. Do you have Safestrap showing up in your apps?

Try installing Busybox from the Play Store, then try the installation again.

Safe system will say not active until you switch to a rom slot from within the SafeStrap recovery.
