First off there are very few circumstances where this should be used. The most obvious one could be:
- You are having some kind of odd display issue where you feel Safestrap is causing a scrambled display, but can’t obviously see anything on the phone to go into the APK and use “Remove Recovery” button. (I’ve never had this happen.) NOTE: There’s a good chance that you will still see a scrambled display after Safestrap is removed and that it’s not actually causing the problem. It just happens to be the last thing that shows before the boot animation which if that’s swiss cheesed means there are driver / kernel / display issues in the stock ROM.
- Connected via ADB either in Recovery itself or fully booted in the OS
- Should be on the stock ROM slot
Commands to be entered as su (should show “#” command prompt):
- mount -t ext3 /dev/block/system /system (if you need to mount system)
- ls -l /system/bin/logwrapper.bin
- Double check that this #2 command shows you a file on your system! If not, then you are not on the stock system and/or don’t have Safestrap installed: proceeding further could brick your phone!
- mv /system/bin/logwrapper /system/bin/logwrapper.bak
- mv /system/bin/logwrapper.bin /system/bin/logwrapper
- rm -rf /system/etc/safestrap
