    I did not see this anywhere on this forum, so I thought I would add the info.

    Allthough I am not sure yet what the use of this is, safe mode on the moto droid is very easy to get to.

    Power down the phone completely.

    Hold the gold directional key on the keyboard down while powering up the Phone. Hold this key till you get a long vibration. This gets you into safe mode.

    perhaps it's like osx safemode, reboot with only required kernel, directory check, etc for troubleshooting.

    Could be I know everything seems to work expect for some miss. apps. I was wondering if it could be like single user mode on a Linux box. I do not think so but i am still trying to figure out if there is any benefit to it at this point.

    Well there have been known to be an app or two that can keep crashing your phone until it is removed, bad part is that you can't remove it because it crashes your phone to the point you can't remove it normally. So i would imagine that's why they made the safe mode, for rare instances like that.

    I would think you can just power down the phone and then start it back up.
