I have a jailbroken iPhone 4S on iOS 7.0.4 and suddenly out of nowhere it started to boot in safe mode only. I did not do anything. It has been more than a month that I have installed or updated any new cydia app.
The phone was just kept on table and after some time I see it was booted in safe mode so I restarted it expecting that it will boot Normally in jailbroken mode but nope again safe mode and this Keeps happening.
I am unable to go in jailbroken mode. Any suggestions on how to fix this ?

Yes. Update to iOS 7.0.6, and re-jailbreak. 7.0.4 has a very nasty SSL bug in it that was fixed in the latest release. I'd say to upgrade to that, jailbreak, and see if the problem persists.

Hold volume up while booting and see if that helps

When I try to boot normally after it has boot, there is a EXIT SAFE MODE on status bar always and when I use volume up button and boot then it boots in safe mode but no EXIT SAFE MODE in status bar.
Either ways I am always in safe mode.

Should I start by uninstalling cydia apps and see ?

I had this happen back when I jailbroke my iPod 4rth Gen
Yes, you need to start disabling crap until it works.

Ok so it seems fixed now.
As darriksailo suggested, I first updated cydia substrate and It did not solve the problem so I went to uninstall it and it also uninstalled almost all tweaks in my phone.
Restart device and it appeared to be in normal jailbroken mode so for testing purpose I installed zeppelin (had it before) and it worked fine.

Thanks for the replies everyone. I hope it stays that way.
