    I installed an alternative launcher and now unfortunately I'm stuck in a force close loop. To fix this I need to get into safe mode, but I don't know how. I have tried booting up whilst holding the menu button but I've had no luck! Does anyone out there know how to boot in Safe Mode on the ZTE Racer?

    By backup I take it you mean simply mounting the phone via USB and copying all the contents over to the PC? Sorry if I'm being a tad newbish :p

    So I was just about to do this, and a got a notification on my handset telling me that I'm running out of storage space. I pressed it and it took me to a menu from which I could uninstall ADW Launcher and return to LauncherPro!! So luckily I'm all good now... thanks for your help!
