Safe mode for Android based devices

So.. if you’ve installed a buggy application, which is loaded at the system start-up and then reboots your phone every time.. or it entered in force close loop (meaning that the phone says that it has to force close and app, and the opens the app again, and then it’s force closing it.. you get it) preventing you to enter in the menu to uninstall that app, Safe Mode would be the solution. When you’re in Safe mode, no third-party apps are loaded and you can uninstall any buggy/unwanted application.

For HTC devices:

  • Turn off your device. If you can’t do it in the normal way, just remove the battery
  • Hold down the Menu button on the phone
  • While pressing the Menu button, turn on your phone but keeping the Menu button pressed until the phone has fully started
  • In the lower-left corner of you screen you should now see Safe Mode

For Motorola Droid:

  • Turn off your device. If you can’t do it in the normal way, just remove the battery
  • Hold down the Menu button on the phone
  • While pressing the Menu button, turn on your phone but keeping the Menu button pressed until you see the Droid eye
  • In the lower-left corner of you screen you should now see Safe Mode

For Nexus One:

  • Turn off your device. If you can’t do it in the normal way, just remove the battery
  • Press the power button to start your phone, and when the logo appears, press and hold the trackball. You should also be able to hold down the touch sensitive Menu button at this point, if you prefer that.
  • Keep pressing until you see the lock screen, and you should now be in safe mode
