Anyone know how to get my DX out of Safe Mode? Got the phone wet and the rice trick seemed to bring it back to life, but it is stuck in safe mode. Battery pulls do not fix it.I have a replacement on order, but they aren't giving me a delivery date.
I just installed an app (Contact Owner) and once I rebooted my phone, I can never get back into the system. That shall be the only harmful action that I had done, can I know if there's any way that I can boot into safe mode to uninstall that particular app? Note:I read some links, including this. Some said, HOME + Power, some said MENU + Power. Am trying both now and see which is gonna work.Tried both, not working How long do I have to press on the buttons? Is the "Power" button the right most bottom button?
Im trying to root my htc hero with android 2.1 and ive done all the steps and im not getting the "superuser permissions" a[[ in my app tray ive updated my build number to 2.27.651.5 which it says to do before i root. ive downloaded sync, and all the files and when i use the command prompt it goes all the way to the "unrevoked" part and the app doesnt go into my tray, im thinking its because its in safe mode and i cant get it out of safe mode, i need to get out of safe mode regardless anyway
waited a very long time for the android 2.1 update to come available for the htc hero on 3 uk and was over the moon when i saw the message to update. i did everything it told me to and it updated fine apart from the fact that my phone is now stuck in safe mode, i haven't rooted my phone and i have tried all the usual methods of getting the phone out of safe mode but nothing seems to work. has anyone had a similar problem and or have a solution,
I was downloading a bluetooth toggle button from the market, battery died. After plugging it in and turning it on, it's now in "Safe Mode". Says safe mode in bottom left corner, none of my app's show up, none of my widgets work.
Rebooted 100 times, held the trackball, held the menu button, held the back button, held the volume button, factory reset. Still in safe mode.
I have been using sweeter home for a few weeks and I downloaded a theme that forced closed Sweeter Home. Since sweeter home was my default deasktop. I could not get back to the main desktop.
I tried starting in safe mode, by holding down the gold key and pressing the power button. Then I released the power button and kept holding down the gold key until I heard a buzz. The phone then rebooted after a few seconds.
I am at a loss what to do now? I am considering a hard reset.

How do you get an Eris out of safe mode? My wife left her phone outside and it got a little wet. I dried it off and pulled the battery to make sure it didn't get wet. Put it all back together and rebooted. Now the phone is stuck in safe mode. No downloaded apps are showing, Lookout will not open in App Manager, Pandora won't work, and I'm sure I'm missing some more.
I googled everywhere and couldn't find the correct answer for my problem. I pulled a pinheaded move by after rooting my phone, I wanted to put teenface's black notification bar. I put the 2 files from the zip (into my SDcard. I turned off my phone and now I am stuck in a boot loop.
I've had my Eris sense November, loaded and uninstalled way too many apps, performed hard resets, loaded the 2.1 leak the night it was "found", and even done a couple hard resets sinse then. Had a new one pop up tonight, playing aroung I installed LockBot free. playing with it and Home, the phone got laggy. So, first thing I do is reboot. the phone restarts, but now it has a translucient box in the lower left corner and says "Safe Mode" and none of my Non-Android (ie Sense, Handcent, Pandore,...) widgets are showing up on the screen, let alone working, they just have little boxes that say "Problem Loading Gadget". Rebooted again, "Safe Mode" is gone, but widgets stil not working.....
Trying to root my Trekstor Ventos 8 and follow the instructions by pressing volume - and power on button. Keep getting into safe mode instead of CWM mode. If i press volume + and power butten I get into recovery mode. How or why do/dont I get into CWM mode? Android 4.1.1 is installed.
Im having trouble getting my Sprint HTC Hero out of safe mode. every time i have tried to boot my phone from the boot screen it gives me a black screen with a picture of my phone and a exclamation point it in front of it. I also tried to root my phone and finished all the steps but when it says "UNREVOKED" in the command prompt i dont get the "superuser permission" app in my app tray,
This procedure can clear a large number of problems and should be tried before a Hard Reset. 1.) Turn phone off remove battery WAIT for at least two minutes. 2.) Power On Phone while Holding MENU key Until ALL actions finish from Powering on phone At the bottom left corner of the display in transparent text will be the words "Safe Mode" 3.) Power off phone again battery out wait two minutes 4.) do a normal power on
i just got the 2.1 update this morning and was cleaning up a few unused apps and i came across launcher. I couldn't believe I still had it on here (been using sweeterhome) and so i remembered i had to go into safe mode to remove it. Tried to get into safe mode no luck. thought, ok, i'm missing a step or something. looked up the directions to make sure i was doing each step correctly and still nothing! i've held the power button and the menu button (keyboard) down at the same time until i saw the eye, until after the haptic then major vibration. i tried holding the menu and power, then releasing the power while still holding menu until both things i just stated and still nothing! what is happening is after I hold the buttons until after the vibration one of two things happens,it will go back to the screen that spells out droid then the eye or it will load normally, no safe mode on the screen. i read somewhere doing a google search that someone else had this same experience and asked for help and no one replied.
Is this a common troubleshooting step for a lot of Android users or do you go right to the factory reset? I do tech support for a carrier and along with the calls I get daily from frustrated Android users and some of the threads that I read in various forums, it just seems like this isn't a widely known or used option. Personally, before I have someone do a factory reset, I always have them put in in safe mode. Only once has the original issue they called about reoccured while in safe mode, so out a replacement went. Just seems so much easier to do a little self troubleshooting rather than calling up a carrier or ranting on a message board about how bad or faulty a device is. I'd hazard to guess that 95%+ of the issues these devices run into is due to end-user error.
My Nexus S has been on safe mode on and off for a few months now. It is on safe mode because the volume down button is not working. I say safe mode is on and off because when the volume down button does happen to work, I restart my phone, and safe mode would go away. However, the volume down button would only work for a few minutes so I have to be very quick in rebooting. But safe mode would come back on if I need to reboot it again (phone freezes, etc). It would go back to safe mode because when I need to reboot it again, the volume down button doesn't work.
However, the volume down button is not working completely now and its been like this for like 2 months. I thought my phone would be always on safe mode now. But my phone has rebooted itself twice randomly (never happened before) and on its own and my phone would come out of safe mode, despite the fact that the volume button doesn't work at all. I can't just randomly wait for this random reboot to occur cause it can come at any time, sometimes even weeks. I just had to to restart my phone manually because my phone froze and it's back on safe mode. I was wondering how to make the phone randomly reboot itself on its own.
I got my phone back from getting it's screen fixed. When I got into the car I noticed it was in safe mode. I didn't think it was a big deal and thought I could easily return my phone back to normal. Turns out I was wrong, I am having a terrible time trying to figure out how to get my phone out of safe mode.
My phone died this morning on the way to work. When I charged the battery a bit and turned it back on, it was in safe mode. I've restarted the phone multiple times and it's still in safe mode. I have also shut it down completely and then restarted it, but to no avail. AND I have removed the battery and still, nothing. How can I disable safe mode?
I plugged my Eris into a two way audio jack to play music through a friend's car stereo, but when I removed the jack, it went into headset mode and I have no idea how to get rid of it. I don't own a headset and as such, cannot talk to or hear anyone I call or who is calling me now. I have scoured the net for answers but the only thing I found was an outdated app that will not work on the phone. Is there anyway to get my phone off headset mode. A toggle widget that works for the newest version of the os? Anything? Anyone
Last night, my phone was fine before I plugged it in to charge. This morning. No alarm went off. The screen was extremely jerky when I was trying to browse through music. And then random bits of screen were being "pressed" when I was tyring to do anything. Rebooted it, no change. Now the bottom cm or so of screen stops responding to ANY finger presses. Thus making it impossible for me to get into settings menu. But it IS responsive with the notification bar (ie you can drag it down near the bottom and jiggle it around the area which I can no longer press)I've got launcher pro, which updated last night automatically. So I have everything on its launcher bar, now I can't get to anything. (How do I create a shortcut to the list of all apps?).Now when I reboot the phone its in safe mode with sense and the bottom cm is still unresponsive.Getting a bit annoyed now as its making everything a bitch to do and I can't reinstall Froyo til I get home from work. Anyone had similar issues?
For those of you who don't know...this is how you can boot your incredible into safe mode (newer version). 1 start your phone wait for the white screen 2 hold down your volume down button with one thumb and use your other thumb to press the circular button and the menu button at the same time. 3 hold this until your phone buzzes (then its ok to release the buttons) 4 you phone will start in safe mode...you will see "safe mode" in the lower corner.
Today I plugged my phone into my car stereo to listen to pandora.When I unplugged it the headphone icon turned into a headset icon.I have no headset and now it's stuck in headset mode.I cannot hear anyone who calls me, or talk to them.I did a quick search for this problem and found some response that suggested it had to do with the hearing aid function in call setting, but when I went into call setting, the hearing aid option was turned off. I've tried powering down and restarting but that did nothing.I'm running a rooted version of 2.1, i don't remember which one but it based on the last leaked version of 2.1.
Can anyone give me an idea what sort of battery life to expect from my Desire if its in plane safe mode being used purely as an MP3 player? I'm off on holiday on Sunday and was contemplating leaving my iPod at home and loading my Desire up with tunes and using it during the day when I'm lounging in the sun.
