Can any of you guys tell me what version of Safe Strap you are using? I still have Safe Strap 3.73 but I hear that one needs an update for it to use CM12 on an XT912 Razr phone. Is there a patch or update for Safe Strap and does it affect one's existing CM11 and stock installs?
How much partition size does one need to install the new CD12 Alpha on a Razr phone? Typically I use the following partition sizes for CM11:
Slot1 - CM11
System: 700 Mb
Data: 2,000 Mb
Cache: 300 Mb
Is this going to work for CM12 or should the partitions be larger? Since I have CM11 on slot 1 and stock is JB, will CM12 work on slot 2?
If you know, please respond. This would help me and others to get a good start on trying out the new CM12 Alpha builds. Thanks a lot for your testing and posting!
As far as I understand, the new SafeStrap is needed for ROMs beyond 11/20.
I have the same setup as you: Stock is JB, Slot 1 is CM11 and now Slot 2 is CM12. Works perfectly.
I used these sizes:
System: 700 Mb
Data: 2,300 Mb
Cache: 310 Mb (Somehow SS defaulted to 10MB and let me increment in units of 100MB.)
At a glance, CM12 seemed to use a bit more space out of the box than CM11, but I did not really do any in-depth analysis. Maybe it is just due to GApps package or ART or whatever.
I originally only had around 1700Mb available for data, and that was just almost enough for the limited number of apps that I have. There was less than 30mb left, and I could not update any apps.
I recreated the slot with 2300mb, and it has worked great.
Again, I have not done any in-depth analysis. These are just my observations.
