Default CWM for razr maxx

Hey everyone.
I'm sort of a noob to root and recovery. I got the ICS update - is this Clockworkmod sticky still applicable with the update? Or do I need to use Safestrap 2.0?

Thanks! Sorry for being such a noob

Use safestrap. Stay away from bootstrap. Most roms require you to use safestrap. And it's safer just make sure you read up and learn how to use it right

You should do some more research...
All custom roms come as zip files.

By flashing zips he means something different than a rom. Example, Google now comes in a zip file that you would flash. It's just what we call it. But I would use safe strap for zips, and for roms. You cant have both of them installed on your phone or bad things will happen.

Well that's all I needed to know.. I didn't think you could have 2 at the same time. Thank you
