I'd really be interested if someone is able to get this working without flashing via SafeStrap. Or perhaps there's a way to push and overwrite the 2 files via ADB while in safestrap recovery? Thanks

If you're in safe strap you might as well just flash the file.

FML, I should have known better. For the record. Flashing that .zip to the stock rom using SafeStrap will hose your phone. -Thanks

That's what I use the Rom slots for...You can try replacing the SystemUI.apk and SecSettings.apk with the originals.

Yeaaah, hmmm, I don't intend to use SafeStrap with a rom slot until I can at least reboot/shutdown the phone without having to pull the battery.

Haha, it may have been 10 seconds after I began flashing the stock tar via odin, when I read your response. I'll try that this time. lol - Thanks

P.S. Before you flash the zip next time use the file manager in safestrap and rename your SystemUI.apk and SecSettings.apk to SystemUI.apk.bak and SecSettings.apk.bak the after you flash the zip wipe cache and dalvik and reboot. If for some reason it were to fail again you can just delete the ones that were installed using the zip and rename the old ones and that would keep you from having to odin. Make sure you rename the odex files and add .bak as well because the install script will remove them
