Safe strap is sandboxed even the stock rom slot. Nothing you do it in can hard brick you. You can always Odin back.

Loading a custom rom in Stock slot goes against the whole purpose of why Safestrap was created.

It's a bummer when the stock slot goes bad and the phone won't even boot into download mode to use Odin and hack your way out of a tight spot.

How can a ROM not booting affect the Download mode portion of the phone?
Since we have locked bootloaders and the ROM loads after the kernel that controls the hot keys combinations at boot, I don't get it and never heard of such a thing happening to anyone
