Power Up in Safe Mode - DROID Mini / DROID Ultra / DROID Maxx by Motorola

Safe Mode puts your phone in a diagnostic state (returned to default settings) so you can determine if a third party app is causing your device to freeze, reset or run slow.

An alternate method is available if the device can be powered on and is responsive.

  1. Ensure the device is powered off.
  2. Press and hold the Power button until the Motorola logo appears then release.
  3. When the Motorola logo appears onscreen, press and hold the Volume down button.
  4. Continue to hold the Volume down button until "Safe mode" appears in the lower left of the unlock screen then release.
    Note This may take up to 30 seconds to complete.
  5. With Safe Mode enabled, test device and app functionality.
