Newbie here with newbie questions
I come from the Samsung world. My SGS3 became physically non functional (broke screen including digitizer & LCD), so I bought a DROID Bionic off eBay to hold me over until contract renewal/upgrade time. It has the latest update on it.
I've been reading various threads and trying to figure out this new world, but I'm still a little confused. Or maybe just unsure of a few things and not sure what is still relevant information. A lot of the guide and how-to posts assume a knowledge of terminology that I don't have yet. I understand the concept of booting from different "slots" I SafeStrap, but I'm unsure quite how to get there.
Is Root required before installing SafeStrap?
Is the Motoshare method of rooting still the way to root? http://www.droidrzr.com/index.php/to...g-new-exploit/
Is that any different from Easy Root? http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2256439
What is House Of Moto? I found instructions for installing it, but I still don't know what it is.
Once I have SafeStrap and a custom rom in one of the slots, will I be able to boot automatically from the rom of my choice? Or will I have to choose it from a boot menu each reboot?
I'll probably have more stupid questions.
