    To check if ur encrypted u have to check in developer options in the setting menu. Itll b in the MORE section just above the about phone option. And I had no problems installing safestrap on my phone and still dont have any issues with it. I have run (fully booted up) a couple few roms as of now using safestrap. Just make sure any rom u choose to run is based off our mf3 and isnt above android 4.2.2 or u will get a failed message when trying to install also do not flash any rom over the stock slot no matter what as we cannot odin back to stock in case of brick yet and always make sure to read everything about the rom u want to install...
    Happy flashing

    After u installed the safestrap app itself via a file manager, did u open the app and install the recovery for ur phone...if u did, look at the top of the app when opened it should say ~recovery state: installed and below that under where it says install recovery and uninstall recovery it should say ~safe system:active

    I posted a link in this ( Safestrap recovery and roms that wrk with mf3 ota) thread a few down from this one with roms that work for our mf3 phones...the only roms that I have found to work so far r the ones based off the mf3 update, all the others fail upon installation ie. Any rom based off android 4.3 and any cyanogen rom base. They wont work I have tried and tried and cannot get them to install...but im running SHoStock right now and its pretty perfect imo but u may like something else like deadly venom or gravitron the google edition 4.2.2. And there r a few more but its really up to u...
    Hope I helped
