    So I rooted my Droid 3 and I installed Safestrap.apk

    I had successfully installed a recovery as well as backed up the systemorig to my ext sdcard via safestrap in recovery. Then when I rebooted system the phone is now stuck in boot loop and won't boot into recovery. Can someone help?

    In addition safestrap would not enable safe system, I toggled enable safe system but when ompleted the system was still disabled?

    Which version of safestrap? Is the phone plugged in to power, or running on battery?

    Just make sure your phone is not plugged in when you reboot.

    I think #Code corrected that odd behavior when he updated SafeStrap from 2.01 to 2.1 - I thought it was kind of cool the way it worked before, but it did cause what looked like boot-loops.

    I followed the directions but in bootstrap I do not have the option to install highlighted

    Instructions are basically this:

    - root the phone
    - allow third party app installs
    - remove Koush's bootstrap, if you have that installed already
    - install the Safestrap app
    - start the Safestrap app from the app drawer
    - press the "Install recovery" button
    - Allow the Safestrap app to have root permissions
    - Restart the phone
