lol. Rebooting accomplishes what i needed. No holding down the volume is required.
Man, what a brain fart.
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
