[Q] Blank black screen w/SafeStrap on Droid 3
Okay, looking to get more involved and learn a lot more in hopes of contributing someday but for now I'm stuck. I picked up a very used Droid 3 on Ebay and rooted it with MotoFail, then installed SafeStrap 3.05 & everything seemed fine. Problem is I can't boot into any "safe" ROM slots, it just gives me a blank black screen & I have to remove the battery to restart. My original D3 has CWM on it, but I was always too scared to flash anything too drastic so this is my test toy. It is running on the 906 with SS version 3.05.
I downloaded a bunch of ROMs and none work. I tried restoring my backup which I'm sure I saw somebody do on Youtube but I have since read that won't work anyway but I'd still like a "stock" rom in a safe slot. I also tried the official 906 zip, but also read somewhere that that only works on the stock partition. I tried aokp_toroplus_nightly_2013-08-20.zip, D3-Eclipse-v3.0_NON.zip, minimoto_v1.7.zip, & the afore mentioned VRZ_XT862_5.5.1_84_D3G-66_M2-10_1FF_01a.XML.zip but none would even flash, just gave errors. Also tried KEXEC-cm-9-20120905-UNOFFICIAL-solana-SS2.zip, Liquid-JB-v2.9-OFFICIAL-solana.zip, & something small called phablet-20130327-cm_solana.zip. That last one, tried usually in slot 4, is the only one that does something other than give a black blank screen - it eventually shuts the phone off. I read that Liquid had to be in slot 3 so that's where I put it every time.
I DID discover that I don't think Busybox was installed during the root this time, when I rooted my original D3 it was already there. So I installed a BB from Market, then went into SS & uninstalled, then reinstalled. Rebooted into recovery and re-wiped all the slots (except stock of course) with all 4 options (cache, dalvik, system, & uh, something else I forget now) & re-installed the ROMs but nothing changed.
More possible helpful info: When this BB installed it gave me an option of normal install or more thorough "smart" install, I did the smart install, also installed CWM ROM Manager to try something but that didn't work either, and downloading official ROMs through that always gives an error. Data sizes of slots are all 2GB except #4 which is only 1GB. Under the "Mount" tab, system & (either data or cache, can't remember) are unchecked, and the 3 "unmount" boxes below are checked. Using a root explorer, I can confirm that SS did "install" the roms & each slot contains a cache.img, system.img, & a userdata.img.
So, what am I doing wrong guys? Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated! Sorry for being such a noob here, Thanks in advance!
