    If I were to boot my non rooted s3 into safe mode would it affect my home screen layout or any of my settings?

    Also how do you boot into safe mode on an s3?:thinking:

    I moved this to the S3 forum where fellow device owners will be able to help out.

    Booting into safe mode will remove your apps and widgets from your homescreen so you'll have to sort everything out the next time you boot up normally. To enter safe mode press menu repeatedly while your phone is booting. To exit safe mode you need to remove the battery, replace then reboot.

    If you boot into safety mode, none of your downloaded apps will function so if youre using a 3rd party launcher, it wont be there, itl be the stock TW one. Everything will return to normal when you reboot into normal mode :thumbup:
    With phone off, hold in the power button til the screen lights up then tap tap tap the menu button until it boots. Youll see "safe mode" at bottom left of the screen.
    can i ask why youre using safe mode? :beer:

    EDIT just realised i got bloody ninja'd :D

    I've seen cases where people have said the only thing that changed was their wallpaper but others have said they've lost all their widgets so I'm not sure for definite.
