Guide to Boot into Safe Mode on HTC One M9 – There are so many apps to choose that you can install in your HTC One M9. This is one thing that makes Android so great because it allows its user to add so many functions to a smartphone easily.
But, this ability is a double edge sword. In once side it gives people the freedom to do anything with their phone, but in the other hand, it may cause conflict with the system or with other app.
This is what you need to remember next time your HTC One M9 have some issue. It is possible that a 3rd party app that you have in there is the culprit for your problem.
But what if the problem happens on the hardware and not for the app? You need to figure out exactly the real cause of the problem before you take any action.
If you want to know whether a problem happen because of 3rd party application or not, then you can boot into Safe Mode first.
Safe Mode will disable the entire 3rd party application in your device without you have to uninstall it. In this Mode you can access only the basic app that comes from the manufacture and you won’t be able to access any of additional app.
If you want to do this, then you need to record the problem that happen in normal mode and see if the problem is still around when you use your phone in Safe Mode.
If your phone works fine in Safe mode, then 3rd party application is the culprit but if the problem still persist, then it is possible that the problem lay in the hardware or in the Android system itself.
Now you get the basic idea of Safe Mode, it is time for you to enter Safe Mode on your device by following these steps:
- Press and hold Power button just like what you normally do when you want to turn off your device.
- When the Power menu show up in the screen, tap and hold the Power Off option.
- Keep doing this until a message show up in the screen that inform you that you about to enter Safe Mode.
- There are two options in the message, “Reboot” and “Cancel“. Choose Reboot and wait until the device boot into Safe Mode.
That is all. Now you already enter Safe Mode. The 3rd party application is grayed out or perhaps not listed in app drawer, so you won’t be able to use any of it. Make use of this Mode and see if the problem is still persisting or not.
If poor performance in the problem, you can check the performance of your phone in this Mode. If excess battery draining is the problem, then need to wait and see how long the battery will hold on in Safe Mode.
If your phone works great in Safe Mode than you can be sure that 3rd party application is the one that cause all those troubles and now all you need to do is figure out which one that responsible for it.
