SS uses TWRP as a base recovery. Which means there should be a "TWRP" folder on the internal storage. Inside that folder is a "theme" folder (or should be).
So to use a theme, you need to place the .zip file (rename to ui.zip if needed) into TWRP/theme/ on the internal storage.
However, there are graphic elements in Safestrap which are not present in normal TWRP themes. So they aren't really compatible (missing high lighted buttons and some font color settings). You can use the /res/ folder from inside Safestrap recovery as a base for a theme if you wish to setup a new one.
The actual recovery files for Safestrap are installed to the stock ROM at: /system/etc/safestrap and then there's a duplicated system binary which acts as a hijack (can be different per device depending on what's needed). These files are temporarily backed up and restored when doing most destructive actions to the stock rom in Safestrap Recovery, such as restoring a backup, flashing a ROM or doing a wipe. However, while I do try and test those features, I'm going to do my best to get rom-slots back up and running so that users are in a safer place and always have the stock ROM as a safety net. While flashing to the stock ROM is all we have at the moment on KK builds.. it's not preferred IMHO. :P
Hope that helps.
