Prompt [Q] HDXPosed Mod - Safestrap?

Hey Everyone, I have a burning question:

FYI: I have a rooted kindle fire HDX 7"

Can I use the HDXPosed Mod (in the android Development forums) on my Stock ROM? because Safestrap only lets me use 4GB, so I was basically just wondering if the HDXPosed Mod was for the STOCK Rom. Thanks in Advance

That's a misunderstanding.

While Safestrap does limit you to a 4GB partition, the way HDX counts storage is the data (books, music, video, pictures...) resides in a completely SEPARATE storage that's NOT a part of the 4GB limit.

So apps that count storage will show you that you have stuff way past 4GB.. and you do have stuff stored there.

So the 4GB limit doesn't actually mean very much to apps that are written properly.

Now to answer your question... Yes, you can use it on stock OR any ROM slot. I did.

Yes, I used this to get it working on my stock ROM. While not recommended, it is possible to flash in SafeStrap to the stock ROM slot. Just make sure you have a nandroid backup first, in case things go wrong. And follow the instructions to a T, otherwise they will not work.

This is the only way to get Google Play working on stock?

No. You can do it using SafeStrap in a rom slot. Or, you can just install the Xposed stuff & then use a utility like KindleFree to install the play store, or use adb & do it yourself by hand, or you can modify the partition table & utilize the secondary framework location (don't even think about this option)...

The bottom line however, SafeStrap DOES NOT limit device storage. It creates a loopback partition with a shared storage pool. The only thing that is limited is the rom slot /system, /data & /cache looped partitions. These are limited in the stock, 100% factory setup too, but the user storage space is SHARED. So, when you have a big app, like Asphalt, or Madded 25, the biggest thing is the obb files, which are stored in /sdcard/android/data & is a part of the shared storage. While the storage settings may say xxGb available, it does not correctly reflect how much storage you truly have. You can indeed access 100% of your 64Gb, or 32Gb, or whatever amount of storage your HDX came with. the only thing you lose storage-wise, is the 4Gb you use for the rom slot,

PEOPLE! You still have access to ALL of your user storage, i.e. /sdcard with SafeStrap.
