Default <safestrap 3.71>Backup stock rom and restore to rom slot?

Can one simply backup their stock ROM and restore it to a rom slot? If I could, I wouldnt be as worried trying out different mods.

Yes, you can absolutely do that. Please watch this video to learn about the basics including backing up and restoring ROM slots. It's for a different phone, but it works exactly the same on the S4 Active.

Thank you. That makes me less worried about trying different mods.

Edit: I made a new rom slot, restored the backup to it, and installed xposed. Thank you for your answer. On my second GS4A, did not want to come close to having to restore this one after my last mishap.
