BETA-STABLE


WHAT IS SAFESTRAP?

Safestrap is a Bootstrap / Recovery for locked bootloader phones. The goal is to avoid touching your primary system (I'll call this "stock" system) and only flash or make large changes to another place on your phone that Safestrap treats as a "2nd system" (in this case, it's a series of virtual ROM slots located on the internal emmc area: "/sdcard"). Once installed, you will see a "Splashscreen" giving you the option to hit "menu" to enter recovery. The recovery portion of Safestrap is now based on TWRP 2.7.1.x (a touch based recovery) and you can perform .zip installs, backups and restores here. The additional features I've added to TWRP are mostly located under the "Boot Options" menu:
  1. Here you can create virtual ROM-slots for flashing ROMs. These ROM-slots allow for different sizes of /system, /data and /cache partitions. The defaults *SHOULD* be good enough for flashing the stock-based ROMs.

    NOTE: The bigger you make these partition the less room you will have to make other ROM-slots.
  2. You can activate a new ROM-slot by choosing the slot you wish to make active and then selecting the "Activate" button. Once active, you will see the "rom-slot#" up in the top of the screen shown in green. If you make the "stock" ROM active, then you can see it in the top shown in red.
  3. Once a ROM-slot is active, all actions you would normally perform using TWRP are directed to that ROM-slot. For example, "Install" to flash a .zip, backup and restore.
  4. For more information you can read up here:
    http://blog.hash-of-codes.com/how-to-safestrap/

HOW DO I INSTALL SAFESTRAP?
  1. Requirement: Rooted w/ SuperSU installed
  2. Requirement: Allow APK install from Unknown Sources
  3. Download the Safestrap APK
  4. Find the APK using a Filemanager tool and open it on your device, then click "Install".
  5. (If updating from an existing Safestrap you might be warned that this will over-write the existing installation. Click the "Yes" equivalent to this message.)
  6. Once installed, open up the Safestrap application as you would any other app.
  7. Agree to the disclaimer that you won't try to sue me and hunt me down with a rifle if you manage to break your phone..
  8. Then use the "Install Recovery" button. You should see the current version down in the lower left corner of the window. And the "Status:" should say "Installed" when you're done.
  9. From there you can reboot and you *should* see a new splash screen during the boot up. While this is showing you can enter Safestrap Recovery using the [ menu ] button.
  10. That's it for the installation! Read below for a brief overview of Safestrap Recovery v3.x


HOW DO I ENTER RECOVERY?

During each reboot a splashscreen will be displayed showing whether the device is running a rom-slot or on the "Stock ROM".
Press the button shown on the screen to either enter "RECOVERY" or "CONTINUE" booting.

HOW DO I UPGRADE SAFESTRAP?
  • Push the APK up to your sdcard.
  • Boot back into the "stock" rom-slot.
  • Go into your old Safestrap app and use the "Uninstall Recovery" button
  • Open an "explorer" of some sort (ESFileExplorer, etc)
  • Browse to where you pushed the APK
  • Click on it and install like normal
  • Once installed, open the APK
  • Grant SU access
  • Use the "Install Recovery" button
  • All set, now you can reboot and re-activate whatever rom-slot you were using

As of version 3.75, Safestrap Recovery is now based on TWRP 2.7.1.x. For more on TWRP you can visit their website: http://www.teamw.in/

WARNING: Safestrap is heavily modified to be "Safe" for your device. Do not download TWRP from their website and expect it to work the same way. Also TWRP does not support Safestrap, tho some issues that may come up will be TWRP dependant, please try and contact myself or look on the forums for your device for answers before hunting down TWRP people. They won't be able to help w/ Safestrap specific questions.

For the purposes of direct user testing I've established a channel on freenode.net IRC: #safestrap
I'm in the channel mostly all the time, but may not be active for discussion.

Special Thanks To
DeesTroy & TeamWin for all their hard work making TWRP such a fantastic recovery

ONLY MODIFY ROM-SLOT FILES. LEAVE YOUR STOCK ROM ALONE!!



KNOWN ISSUES WHEN USING ROM-SLOTS (The ROMs are kept on loop device mounted partitions)
1. In theory you will lose an extra 3-4 percent battery compared to normal usage from 100% to 0% due to the extra read/write work involved when using ROM-slots.
2. The /data partition is kept separate from the "/sdcard" contents on SS ROMs. This causes the Storage settings to only show the size of the loopback data partition and then it shows "used" which includes the "sdcard" + /data so this can look odd at times (larger usage than partition size). It doesn't have any adverse affects that I know of.
3. No custom kernel flashing support at this time. Don't try it. It won't work. All kernels need to be signed by Amazon at the moment.

CHANGELOG:
  • [v3.75]TWRP 2.7.1.0 update + display fix for 14.3.2.3.2/14.3.2.4
  • [v3.72]TWRP 2.7.0.0 update. *** This includes a bugfix for backup time showing correctly ***
  • [v3.72]Raised /data partition size to 16gb
  • [v3.72]Swapped "Reboot" -> "Download" mode to "Reboot" -> "Bootloader" (places you in fastboot mode)
  • [v3.71-B05]New QCOM recovery graphics patch to fix devices with larger than 2048 width
  • [v3.71-B05]Fixed touchscreen rotation (off by 90 degrees)
  • [v3.71-B05]WIP adb access in recovery (may only work on Linux for now)
  • [v3.71-B05]Initial release for Apollo (Kindle HDX 8.9")

Alrighty then! I guess you had it covered! I wondered why I never got a response. At any rate, if anyone has any issues or if you need any further bug testing, feel free to let me know @Hashcode .

As I dig further into the HDX framework, bootloader & kernel it seems like I find some new roadblock that Lab126/Amazon has thrown into the mix.

One last question. I am unfamiliar, totally unfamiliar, with Safestrap. I assume it lives in it's own partition, & recovery calls are redirected there? Does that mean I can remove it & restore the main partition to default size, then use the build.prop hack to return to stock? Or is safestrap modification to partitions semi-permanent?

EDIT: Nevermind, I did a little reversing & checked out your blog. Needless to say, I answered my own question.

What are the optimum partition values to use when creating a rom slot. Are there values that are usafe to use at this point. By the way thanks @Hashcode for bringing this to the 8.9.

If at any point you decide you need a larger userdata or cache partition, you can:
- run a backup of the rom-slot
- delete it
- then create a new rom-slot w/ the right sizes
- and finally restore the backup to it (after making sure it's active)

So short answer: no real "wrong" sizes. Can stick w/ the defaults if unsure.

Actually, the ENCRYPTION reference I'm talking about is when you turn on Android OS level encryption for the userdata partition. I'm not finding that setting in the Kindle OS Settings anywhere. So we might be ok on that.

No there is no custom ROM to load right now.
As far as I know, you could just load the stock ROM into the rom slot #1 and play around to your heart content without fearing you will brick your device since all you mess around is just a copy of the original one only. :)

Thanks!


So I tried installing ancestral but when I click install recovery from the app it goes through the motions but state never changes. Remains at not installed. Rebooting doesn't bring up the recovery menu.

Going to try to go back to stock and start from beginning. It was awesome using play store!

    For awareness both mirrors have been down for weeks (one permanently) with several recent requests for the 3.75 apk in other threads going unanswered. The OP clearly indicates support would be withdrawn Sept 1st, 2014. It appears that end is drawing nearer and serves as a clear warning to those still on safestrap: keep a backup of your apk!

    For those considering a rollback to 3.2.8 for the purpose of running Nexus 1.0.x you may want to hold up until the Safestrap 3.75 apk is reposted (which may or may not happen).

    I've reuploaded all the files to MEGA: https://mega.co.nz/#F!BZVi3JzL!sveOygO-qbcmerp3BkgcxA

    • Boot back into the "stock" rom-slot.
    • Go into your old Safestrap app and use the "Uninstall Recovery" button
    • Open an "explorer" of some sort (ESFileExplorer, etc)
    • Browse to where you pushed the APK
    • Click on it and install like normal
    • Once installed, open the APK
    • Grant SU access
    • Use the "Install Recovery" button
    • All set, now you can reboot and re-activate whatever rom-slot you were using


    NOTE: As a "short-cut" you can install the APK via adb (if for instance you don't want to take the time to load a FileExplorer onto the stock ROM):
    <cd to the directory on your PC where the Safestrap APK is located>
    adb install Safestrap-Apollo-3.72.apk

    Stock Amazon flash .zip for the HDX 8.9:

    Note it is not altered in ANY way. Need to root and stop OTAs if you flash it.
