  • [10/14] Charging in recovery
  • [10/14] Supports "Reboot Recovery" from Android OS

Tol flash the leak or to not flash the leak

Hashcode,

There seem to be too differing opinions on whether or not it is safe to flash the ICS leak or not. Being the android guru that you are, would you mind weighing in or whether or not this is safe to do? It seems, based on the fact the people are able to go from .200 to .206 that, theoretically, you should be able to use the same method to flash the OTA when it comes out and get back on the upgrade path. What are your thoughts? Thanks!

Just used safestrap 2.0 to do a full system backup. I think the confusing thing about pressing the keys to enter or skip the safestrap menu is the lack of haptic feedback when pressing the menu or search softkeys.
Thanks for your work hashcode. Without you the D4 would be lost.

I don't recommend people jump on the ICS leaks just yet. But, if you do and are looking to make backups etc, then Safestrap is probably what you need. Just make sure to do the initial backup of your non-safe system (don't need webtop) so that you can put everything back the way you found it.

Ah the haptic feedback. Yes, I probably should add that back in. As it is, I'm not super thrilled w/ the touch response in the new Safestrap. I probably need to work on it as well. There are times when touches are "lost" and then double up (for 2 touches at once). But hey, it's better than nothing.

I could not agree with you more. I am ecstatic that i was able to make a backup. Now i can work on getting rid of some of this bloat without sacrificing the ability to update again.

I'm behind, say I'm running stock, with safestrap with aokp.

What's the best way to install the leak then install safetrap 2.0?

1. Go to non safe
2. Flash leak
3. Root the leak
4. Install safestrap


That about right?

Any gotchas we should know about?

Follow the instructions posted but the basic rundown will be..

1. Fastboot .219 images
2. Re root phone with motofail.
3. UPDATE SUPERUSER BINARY!!!
4. Use Voodoo rootkeeper to backup root, temp unroot, and restore root.
5. Install .206 ICS leak with stock recovery
6. Use Voodoo Rootkeeper to restore root.
7. Install Safestrap 2.0

Done, and pretty sweet.
No more data issues!
No more not being able to do video!
No more not being able to use flash!
No more weird youtube glitch!

Now to wait to wait for an AOKP port and I'll be perfectly happy!

...Until the next android comes along...

Have you successfully removed any of this awful mototrash? It almost makes me want to go back to CM9's dailys. It's that awful.

I know your questions was not directed towards me but I used Titanium Backup to freeze all of the bloatware, then realized you can do this within the OS under the APPS list. There is a disable button in each app details screen. I froze almost EVERYTHING, except for the My Gallery/music apps. I pretty much did the same thing when I was running GB...was worried that something would cause a bootloop but was very careful I guess. Battery is MUCH better now!!!

Yeah I've done that for the most part. I just really can't stand the motoblur. It's so frustratingly cartoony and awful and I'm really conflicted about what is worse, the intermittent data or this crappy interface.

Lol tell us how you REALLY feel. I have to agree with you though. Motoblur is dog ugly but then again so are most of the custom interfaces. I prefer vanilla android.

Actually I fixed mine. Make sure you install busybox when you root your phone. I just used the free busybox installer and it fixed it where Safe Strap installed on 208. Woo Hoo! My data from 206 also restored. Thank you god for Hashcode and this wonderful tool. :-D

    Safestrap v3.72 posted in the OP.

    Main changes are base TWRP updates for 2.7.0.0

    Enjoy

    As you may have noticed I will be stopping official Safestrap support on 9/1/2014.

    I am seeing if I can get some other devs trained up on how to build Safestrap, but as always there are no guarantees.

    Thank you for all your encouragement and support over the years.

    Updated the OP w/ D/L + information for Safestrap Recovery v3.04. Enjoy.

    SafeStrap 3.75 without the splashscreen at boot time

    Here SafeStrap 3.75 without the splashcreen during the boot for the maserati, spyder, targa and umts_spyder.

    Here SafeStrap 3.75 without the splashcreen during the boot and with the support for the unused partitions for the maserati and spyder:
    - /preinstall (~ 600mb) for /system, /webtop (~ 1,4gb) for /data and /cache shared with the stock slot.

    To enter in SS you can select BP Tools in the Boot Mode Selection Menu(VolUp&&VolDown+PowerOn). In this way SafeStrap is more similar to a standard TWRP recovery.


    Thank to @Hashcode for SafeStrap, @stargo for the version 3.75 and @Asianism for the idea to remove the splashscreen in this way.
