Exclamation [Q] Bricked? [Solved]

I was following the instructions at the CryanogenMod Wiki for the Droid 4 (Maserati) to install CM11 nightly.
I followed the instructions word for word up to "Boot to recovery mode on the device by holding Power and at SafeStrap splash screen press Menu key within 10 seconds." I was already in SafeStrap (I had just activated rom-1) so I used the Reboot> Recovery option in the program. When it loads up I get the Droid! screen. I tried going to the Boot Options screen and go to recovery with the same result.
So is it bricked, or am I missing something?

It's pretty hard to really brick a D4. Worst case you'll have to fastboot using the JB fastboot files and RSDlite. Can you still get in to safestrap recovery?

I was having noob trouble getting to SafeStrap. I finally figured it out but I couldn't figure out how to delete my thread here. I appreciate your help though.
