I am having a problem with loading Safestrap I think. I downloaded Safestrap to my phone from the above link and I was able to hit the install recovery tab and I received a message stating that Safestrap installed. However the state on my phone reads not installed and I cannot run reboot to recovery not sure what the problem is. I ran the install a couple of time just to be sure.

I've already answered this in the other thread.
Don't open it using your file manager, open it from the downloads folder and it'll install.
My Android devices:
vzw Samsung Galaxy S4 stock NC5 rooted
Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, also stock but rooted.

VZ Droid Incredible 2 rooted but otherwise stock.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1
