For some reason the safestrap apk won't install the recovery program. When I hit install recovery it gains su permissions, shows a loading bar, says installation successful, but still says "Recovery State: Not installed" and there is no new splash screen on reboot. I just rooted this phone for the first time and have no other bootstrap to uninstall first. Any ideas?

I've seen this happen when Superuser has just been updated. It's like Safestrap thinks it has su priv, but Superuser never gives it out. Or something odd. I would try removing and reinstalling Safestrap so that Superuser can re-add it to the "allowed" list.

Safestrap is the recovery system that lets Bionic users utilize an alternate recovery firmware to install alternate ROMs. That's what this entire thread is about.

It almost sounds like you trying to make your backup through ROM Manager. ROM Manager looks for Clockwork Recovery (that gets installed with Bionic Bootstrap and not Safestrap). Safestrap is an entirely different system that ROM Manager won't recognize.

Make sure you reboot your phone and manually enter into Safestrap so that you can make a backup. It will work properly that way.

Would it somehow be possible to load a stock 5.5.886 image with kernel and everything stock like using the full 5.5.1_84_DBN-55 image? Then being able to update it through the upgrade path then flash it to the normal phone system? I mean using the 2nd partition created by safe strap to do all the steps before flashing to the normal phone partition.

I was also wondering is it possible to copy a backup from CWM into the folder this creates for backups and be able to flash that?

Safestrap does not interact with CWM backups from the other bootstrapper.

Although you can still copy the backup from CWM to safestrap and still restore it and it will work. i have done this.

I Loose boot after safe mode enabled
I rooted the .886, then used the OTA and lost root.

I had to factory reset so i could R3L3AS3dRoot and 4ever root, I then used the OTA to come from .886 system to the .893 system.

I am rooted and have the recovery state installed.

When I install the safe strap I loose the ability to boot, I then have to uninstall it to gain boot once again.

EDIT:
Safe strap enabled, had to flash a custom rom over the one which wouldn't boot. I'm sure it would work if i reflashed stock over the safestrap.

Thank you!
