    Hello all, sit back and listen to the story of a true idiot.

    I was running the eclipse ROM with a SUPER old version of SafeStrap (2.11),
    (This should tell you where this is going)
    and it was getting unreasonably slow. Apps would close, etc, so I finally had to upgrade.

    I went about installing the latest version of Safestrap, which went fine, but when I went to reboot the phone it always showed up as 2.11.

    Here's where I pulled a real idiot move.

    I thought that safestrap 2.11 and 3.whatever could be running separately, and that disabling 2.11 would allow me to access the newer version
    (I swear I'm not normally this stupid)
    Anyways, I decided to disable safestrap on boot, and now I'm stuck with the red eye of doom. Never boots past it.
    No safe strap prompt on boot.
    I'm a bit lost as to what steps I should be taking.

    Any direction would be greatly appreciated.

    If you can boot into fastboot, yer @$$ is saved. Use Mattlgropf (sp?) Utility for JellyBean on da Razr.

    I got it working, and ran the fastboot restore, but I'm getting the same issue.

    I tried to install the Safestrap utility, but it seems to hang. Thoughts?

    You're help thus far is super helpful, thanks!

    I'm still not rooted, maybe after Santa has done his thing someone who is can help.
