Copied over from the old forum in case others can use this. Here is how I got into Android Safe Mode on my Neo X5... Answered my own question based upon some hints in other posts for other devices... Using a USB keyboard that has dedicated volume up/down buttons (I have a Logitech K400 - pretty decent for use with the Neo btw), reboot the Neo. As the boot animation starts, press and hold BOTH volume up/down buttons until the main screen is shown. You will see "safe mode" in the lower left corner. This worked for me on Finless 1.3 YMMV on other ROMs.
