How to put an iPad to safemode (jailbroken)

Sometimes it’s necessary to put a jailbroken iPad in safe mode because of various reasons.  For example, my iPad crashed recently.  All the icons messed up and basically the iPad was “acting” like an iPhone.  I didn’t want to restore it and lose all my data, so I performed the following steps to put it into safe mode:

  1. Turn the iPad off.
  2. Turn it on again, but pressing the up volume button until the iPad starts.
  3. Now, all the non-vital applications are down, so you can uninstall anything is messing up with your system.  In my case, I had to uninstall iProtect.
