I have the same problem. I was able to flash cwm, uninstall the SS recovery, and uninstall the app. The first time I got the dead android symbol. I restored SS via Titanium Backup, reinstalled the SS recovery, and flashed cwm again. I tried rebooting into recovery and was able to get cwm working. As soon I uninstalled SS and rebooted, I got another dead android.

probably because were all on the XT926 if we were to revert back to XT925 then the recovery should work otherwise we will have to tweak the recovery to get it to work properly witht the XT926 software awesome thing is we can now free up the space that SS used for a rom slot however for noobs you might wana stick with SS once you hardbrick without anything to go back too it will be game over for your phone and then you have to con ATT for another

From Phone Off, Hold Power and Both Volumes.

If the phone is on, do the above and when the screen goes black, press them all again...I've been doing that for an hour now

I installed MR via fastboot and just now got it booting. I made the mistake of using the SDK fastboot to flash /system.

You won't lose root
And with an unlocked bootloader, all you gotta do is flash an updater zip with the su binary and app for Stock roms that don't have root

I'll link to a root zip in the op once I find one (or just make it; depends on how quick I find it in a search)

is there a point to flash a different firmware? is it required by any means?
I had SS and was backed up, I booted up the "stock ROM" and was successful in unlocking the BL and flashing CWM. I made a new backup of the stock ROM and restored it with success in CWM. In the video it show he has MR , but im confused as to why.

Also, I cant seem to get rid of safestrap....how in the hell do you uninstall it???

open the ss app in your phone...on the screen it will give you 2 options....install or uninstall recovery....

then remove app from setting/app.....select and uninstall app....
