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:
- Turn the iPad off.
- Turn it on again, but pressing the up volume button until the iPad starts.
- 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.
