*** disclaimer ***
i work on projects that may brick your device. Don't sue me, hate me or try and kill my dog if that happens. I will feel bad the community will feel bad and hopefully we'll find a way to get you going again. But, the very nature of my projects involves a certain amount of risk taken by you. And by using the projects that i work on, you've accepted that fact.

what is safestrap?
safestrap is a bootstrap / recovery for locked bootloader phones. The goal is to avoid touching your primary system (i'll call this "stock" system) and only flash or make large changes to another place on your phone that safestrap treats as a "2nd system" (in this case, it's a series of virtual rom slots located on the internal emmc area: "/sdcard"). Once installed, you will see a "splashscreen" giving you the option to hit "menu" to enter recovery. The recovery portion of safestrap is now based on twrp 2.7.1.x (a touch based recovery) and you can perform .zip installs, backups and restores here. The additional features i've added to twrp are mostly located under the "boot options" menu:
