I accidentally added a task to Tasker which reboots the phone on startup. How do I boot into safe mode on LG Optimus 2X to disable it?

Have you tried holding the menu button while it boots up? Do you have any reason to believe it has safe mode? – Matthew Read Aug 19 '11 at 0:32

If your G2x is rooted, the easiest work-around would be deleting the Tasker's data from recovery. Download and install Android SDK and LG's drivers for the G2x. Reboot the G2x into recovery mode (preferably ClockworkMod), connect to PC, and in command prompt issue the following commands:

cd C:\AndroidSDK\platform-tools\
adb shell
rm -rf /data/data/

This should remove all Tasker profiles, including the "bad" one.
