    Stuck in Safe Mode

    Earlier this week, I had problems with my Nexus One,, screen freezes etc.
    I believe it occurred after I allowed a few App upgrades - Google Earth, Spotify and one other I can't recall.
    I wasn't able to switch off as the screen was unresponsive.
    As I was trying to get it to respond it changed to a white screen with some very very small text down the left hand side.
    I managed to highlight one of the instructions, Reboot I think. Not much happened that I could see.
    I removed the battery then reinserted.
    It powered up but has remained stuck in Safe Mode
    I have since rmoved all apps that I don't need but despite switching off and removing the battery countless times it won't come out of Safe Mode.

    Any ideas anyone??????

    In Safe Mode it shows all 5 screens in the normal way with all the Apps displayed and fuctional. However when I press the middle Apps button (the one with the 4 squares x 4 squares) on the tool bar it only shows the default apps supplied with the phone.

    Yes it allowed me to delete apps through my uninstaller app and just tried it, it allows me to install apps. But of course i can't place them on a screen because they don't appear on the Apps list??????????

    So please tell me why at the bottom left corner of my screen there is a small black rectangle with Safe Mode in white text.
    Haven't got a clue what Adw or Lp is??

    Did you try to do a factory reset?

    Well I'll be damned....I guess you learn something new everyday.

    Are you able to do a factory reset in the Recovery options?

    Could probably do a factory reset but don't want to go through the pain of re-doing all my email accounts etc

    You could try holding the trackball when you startup after the nexus x appears. If that doesn't work, a factory reset might be your only option.
