No. Safestrap only uses the preinstall partition as a 2nd-system for booting. It doesn't do anything w/ the external SD.

I found out the issue. The "USB Storage" in MIUI settings only displays the internal "sdcard" space. It doesn't actually show the external card usage, but the card is mounted and in use. Too bad ES File Explorer force closes.

OK quick question,

I was on an ICS ROM then I went into safe mode and installed Eclipse 2.2. I like Eclipse because it is extremely stable. How do I make this my default ROM? Do I just copy the data.ext3.tar file from the Safe folder to the Orig folder? Or is the other way around? Or is there a smarter/safer way to do what I'm thinking.

Thanks,
balde

When you apply a rom ZIP, it will be installed to either the safe or unsafe partitions, depending on whether or not you have Safestrap enabled or disabled. Are you saying you want to remove the Safestrap setup and flash only Eclipse to your phone? If this is the case, then you'll need to remove Safestrap entirely and use Koush's bootstrapper.

If you just want to install Eclipse to the Unsafe partitions, instead of the Safe partitions where it is now....why?

Thank you for your quick reply rick. I'd like to put eclipse onto the safe partition as I'd like to try newer ICS ROMs when they come out and have eclipse always around as my backup since the dev for that ROM has said he will not be making any new versions. I might be asking the question incorrectly. Let me restate it.

I'd like to keep Eclipse as my main go to ROM but would like to be able to test out newer ROMs as they show up. What would be the best way to do that if I already have Eclipse loaded (switched to safe mode and then installed Eclipse)?

Thank you again,
balde

I gotcha, that makes sense. You want to use Eclipse as your daily driver in place of the stock ROM, and use the "Safe" partition (normally used for community ROMs) as a test area. You should be able to disabled Safe, wipe, and flash. If you want to be completely certain, wait for someone more familiar to answer. The way I understand it, however, is you can enable or disable Safe and then flash as normal. In this case you'd disable Safe (to point everything at the default partitions), wipe, and flash.

I think you've got a great idea. I made a backup this morning of the Eclipse ROM set up the way I like it. I wonder if I disabled safe mode and then RESTORED that backup it would put it into the unsafe/orig area.

Again, thank you Rick, you've been a great help. Have a rad day.

I think that will work, but you might want to do your research first.
