Safestrap Problems on Note 3 4.2.2 (UK)
So I've got some issues trying to use safestrap to install custom ROMs on my Note 3. I have been searching the internet for answers and cannot seem to find anything to help. Let me give you guys all the information.
I have successfully rooted my phone (checked with a root checker)
I have Busybox Free and Busybox Installer on the phone
I have ES File explorer
I have Lucky Patcher
And obviously I have Safestrap (Version 3.75)
So first I had problems with safestrap where the 'Reeboot to Recovery' box was constantly inactive and greyed out so I couldn't use it. I solved that issue by just finding a new version than the one I had with this problem, now that is fine and I was able to select 'Install Recovery' which worked and then selected 'Reeboot to Recovery'.
Next I was in Safestrap from booting into it and created a backup as most guides for installing a custom ROM suggest.
Now to the problem...once I am in Safestrap I need to select 'Boot Options' then select a ROM Slot (in this case ROM slot 1). The problem is that 'Selected Space' shows as 5512MB and 'Free Space' shows as 21MB. Why is that???
I have hardly anything on the phone, I used apps to remove all bloatware, deleted all my music, videos and pictures, and when I return to the system (boot normally in to the phone) ES File Manager shows the structure as the following:
[picture of an SD Card] 0 (1.77 GB/26.32)
[picture of an SD Card] extSdCard (5.39 GB/7.38 GB)
What is the 0 ? and if it says that only 1.77GB of 26.32GB is used then why is safestrap only showing 21MB?
Maybe there is something simple I'm missing or maybe I just don't understand something but all these guides and youtube videos make installing a custom ROM look so easy when really its not. I'm not beaten though and I don't want to give up because the phone is great and with custom ROMs it will be even better, I just need to be able to get it working.
Thanks for your help guys,
