md5sum: 713a1633da981f9a7c13a462a5b4ca95
FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS: How to Safestrap
[ DOUBLE-CHECK you have the "Maserati" version ]


NOTABLE TWRP-BASE CHANGES:
  • Key/button vibration in recovery and MANY more 2.7 updates
  • Screen saving in recovery. Can set the timeout under Advanced->Settings->Screen *Don't freak out of the screen is dark, try the power button.*
  • SElinux support in recovery
  • and much much more.. check the TWRP changelog here: http://www.teamw.in/project/twrp2

DEVICE SPECIFIC SAFESTRAP CHANGES:
  • [04/14] (3.72) Mostly other device updates
  • [01/15] (3.71) Code cleanup
  • [01/15] (3.71) Minor hijack updates
  • [12/18] (3.70) Mount cleanup during hijack / debugging output
  • [12/18] (3.70) Splashscreen: Instant stock boot key (needs to be set for Moto OMAP4's still)
  • [11/13] (3.65) recovery init.rc cleanup
  • [11/13] (3.65) fix updater build for cm 10.1 and 10.2
  • [09/20] (3.60) Better handling for virtual images > 2gb
  • [09/20] (3.60) Much improved block device handling
  • [09/20] (3.60) Bugfix in script translation
  • [09/20] (3.60) hijack / init.rc tweaks
  • [09/06] (3.53) Fixed mass_storage in recovery (via Mount menu)
  • [09/06] (3.53) Added Webtop to partition backup list (optional)
  • [09/06] (3.53) New virtual systems created will be 640mb (got reset 600mb)
  • [09/06] (3.53) Fixed file selector when changing from internal to external storage (previously location wouldn't update)
  • [09/05] (3.52) added "Reboot to Recovery" in APK
  • [09/04] (3.51) Disabled screen blank while creating a rom-slot
  • [09/04] (3.51) Fixed openrecovery script processing for stock slot to re-inject hijack after .zip install (cmupdater on stock now works)
  • [08/30] (3.50) If running a new CM10.1/CM10.2 ROM (08/30 or later) you *should* be able to install Safestrap and update the recovery w/o having to go back to stock. If Safestrap shows "recovery not installed" while you're on a ROM-slot, then that ROM hasn't been updated and it won't work. Swap back to stock ROM and update Safestrap from there.
  • [08/30] (3.50) Worked on stock ROM flashing and *should* work with CM10.1/CM10.2 builds on or after 08/30 *WILL NOT WORK WITH OLDER ROMs.*

  • [08/30] (3.50) Complete re-write against TWRP 2.6 base (up from version 2.2.2.1): TWRP changelog for reference
  • [12/29] (3.11) Allow use of custom updater-binary in .zip files for flashing on stock ROM (virtual slots still use prebuilt updater-binary in recovery).
  • [12/29] (3.11) BUGFIX: Fixed fake flash error at the end of a .zip install. (No real error, .zip installs fine)
  • [12/29] (3.10) Early support for booting custom ROMs on stock partitions.
  • [12/29] (3.10) Enable flashing to stock ROM *BE CAREFUL -- NEW FEATURE -- STILL TESTING*
    • After .zip installations, nandroid restore or system wipe on the stock ROM: the current Safestrap files are restored to the system partition (Doesn't include the APK in /data -- so if you're restoring an old backup, be sure to update the Safestrap APK)
    • During the Safestrap files restore a check is done to be sure there are minimal files on /system to re-enter Safestrap
  • [12/29] (3.10) New virtual system partitions will be 640mb (closer match to stock RAZR/D4)
  • [12/27] (3.07) Bugfix: missed some changes in Safestrap 3.06

  • [10/14] Updated to v3.04 BETA.
  • [10/14] Recovery is now based off TWRP 2.2.2.1 (fully featured touch-based recovery)
  • [10/14] Can create up to 4 Virtual ROM-slots to flash ROMs to and when "Active" ALL TWRP functions affect that ROM-slot (For example: Flashing .zips, Backup and Restore)
  • [10/14] Nearly instant swapping from ROM to ROM
  • [10/14] User selectable data partition sizes during ROM slot creation: 1GB, 2GB or 3GB
  • [10/14] ROM slots are saved on the internal emmc space so that preinstall and webtop partitions are no longer used and shouldn't break OTAs.
  • [10/14] Charging in recovery
  • [10/14] Supports "Reboot Recovery" from Android OS

Entry to recovery via Splashscreen on boot-up. The screen stays up for around 8-10 seconds and if you hit the menu button, it takes you to Safestrap Recovery.


SPECIAL THANKS TO:
  • The entire TWRP team who has built an AMAZING recovery system.
  • The testers which have helped in past and present versions of Safestrap, knowing that it could mean they brick their devices.

As always, let me know what you think!

Yes. There is no way to get Safestrap installed w/o being rooted.

Default Tol flash the leak or to not flash the leak

Hashcode,

There seem to be too differing opinions on whether or not it is safe to flash the ICS leak or not. Being the android guru that you are, would you mind weighing in or whether or not this is safe to do? It seems, based on the fact the people are able to go from .200 to .206 that, theoretically, you should be able to use the same method to flash the OTA when it comes out and get back on the upgrade path. What are your thoughts? Thanks!

Just used safestrap 2.0 to do a full system backup. I think the confusing thing about pressing the keys to enter or skip the safestrap menu is the lack of haptic feedback when pressing the menu or search softkeys.
Thanks for your work hashcode. Without you the D4 would be lost.

I don't recommend people jump on the ICS leaks just yet. But, if you do and are looking to make backups etc, then Safestrap is probably what you need. Just make sure to do the initial backup of your non-safe system (don't need webtop) so that you can put everything back the way you found it.

Ah the haptic feedback. Yes, I probably should add that back in. As it is, I'm not super thrilled w/ the touch response in the new Safestrap. I probably need to work on it as well. There are times when touches are "lost" and then double up (for 2 touches at once). But hey, it's better than nothing.

I could not agree with you more. I am ecstatic that i was able to make a backup. Now i can work on getting rid of some of this bloat without sacrificing the ability to update again.

I'm behind, say I'm running stock, with safestrap with aokp.

What's the best way to install the leak then install safetrap 2.0?

1. Go to non safe
2. Flash leak
3. Root the leak
4. Install safestrap


That about right?

Any gotchas we should know about?

Here is the link for detailed instructions. If you have to the fastboot route than it is about an hour long process so my advice is start with a fully charged battery.
