I figured it out. It doesn't safe mode in the status bar when I go into safe mode. To get out I have to hold volume down and the reboot.

Why do you have to hold volume down? Could you just power cycle it as well as an alternative?

lol. Rebooting accomplishes what i needed. No holding down the volume is required.

Man, what a brain fart.

:d

Why won't my smiley face work? Every time I submit my post it keeps changing to a lowercase "D". Strange. Never had that happen before.

When I hold the volume up button while rebooting my phone doesn't go into safe mode.

Just in case you haven't figured it out, when you hold the volume up to boot, it boots up with mobilesubstrate disabled. It will not show safe mode at the top but you will notice all your tweaks relying on mobilesubstrate no longer works

You just do a normal shut down and turn on to boot back to normal

Yes I got it. I couldn't tell if it was in safe mode at the time because I had no tweaks installed at the time.
