Note: The solution is tested on Android 4.2.1, 5.0.2 and 5.1.1.
The value for the system property persist.sys.safemode determines whether the phone should boot into safe mode or in normal mode.
When booted into Android OS, provided root access, the value can be changed as
adb shell su -c 'setprop persist.sys.safemode 1'
adb shell su -c 'echo "1" > /...

For Apps Installed on the Device
Assuming you have installed the app on your device, go to the app’s
Google Play Store link and take note of the words after “?id=” and
ignore the rest.
Connect your device to the computer via USB
Right way to do this
Disable the broken VOLUME DOWN key by editing /system/usr/keylayout/gpio-keys.kl and /system/usr/keylayout/Generic.kl as root and commenting that key out. Longer instructions on this answer.
Dumb and hacky approach that sort of worked for me
This is an ugly solution but it works for me. It is a "tethered" solution requiring adb to do ...
After doing some more research specially on Xposed itself, found out this way of booting is a fail-safe option to disable Xposed Framework at boot time which seems to be a feature of the framework itself and have nothing to do with Android core. As mentioned in this thread:
Xposed for the most part is STABLE and SAFE. However, installing an
I had the same problem. Spent a night to fix it. First i thought it to be a software issue.. browsed and tried infinite fixes. I tried re seating flex cable that connects the volume buttons and the motherboard.I tries to factory reset through boot loader. Thought of flashing a different ROM. Dint work out for me.
Here is what worked for me.

Try charging your phone to its max and try again. This should work, do not turn on your phone until it shows that it is 100% charged. Reboot your phone and disable Ultra STAMINA mode, everything should be fine.
If your battery is less than 15%, Ultra STAMINA mode does not allow flash, camera location, 4G which requires maximum power and drain the battery.
This applies to the original HTC Desire, codename Bravo. The instructions have been tested to work on the GSM version of the phone with Android 2.3.3.
How to enter Safe Mode
Power off the phone.
Press and hold down the menu button, and then press and let go of the power button, but continue holding the menu button. The phone will power on and start booting....
Look no further than the one-click root apps as an example. They exploit a vulnerability (usually on phones no longer updated or supported by their vendors) in the Android to gain elevated privilege to install a persistent piece of software, which usually is a system app in the form of a root access manager, but can also add daemons and other files wherever ...
I have a Samsung Galaxy S8 and have the same problem as you with TopBuzz showing up in the storage clean but unable to find it anywhere in my phone.
I tried the SD Maid app but that did not help. However, I did try Clean Master which I have used in the past with my old phones becuse it does work better than the built in storage clean (but uninstall it when ...
Safe mode only disable users app (non system apps) and let you troubleshoot which apps may be causing trouble.
And yes, of course you'll still have root access. The only way to check root is via adb command.
Install ADB (now available since Google released it without all the SDK), open a terminal and tape this command :adb shell su
The output should ...
Of course you can uninstall from the safe mode. Disable the authorization in the Device Administrator first.
Step for booting in safe mode:
From any screen, press and hold the Power key.
Touch and hold Power off. Review the 'Reboot to safe mode' screen,' then tap OK.
The device should restart in safe mode and 'Safe mode' will appear in the lower-left.
Sorry for telling you the truth , but the only way to get out of the Safe Mode of your Device , is replacing the broken button , because while you pressing the Power button , the volume button is being used automatically during the boot , so the phone will boot in Safe Mode , only because of the broken button...
Turned out to be a hardware fault in this particular circumstance a faulty connection between the flex cable that connects the volume buttons and the motherboard... Reseated the connector and 'safe mode' was gone next time I restarted.
Found this by trial and error - don't know of any way to narrow down the cause with the help of software.
So wish I had ...
Some instructions say hold Volume Down + Power 5 seconds to open the boot menu. On a ChaCha with software version 18.104.22.168 opens the boot menu immediately; I just hold Volume Down and get the boot menu within a second.
Booting works differently depending on which Android and ROM version you have. Open Settings, About this phone, Software and add in your ...
