How do I manually enter safe mode to remove a Cydia tweak?

If you haven't installed Cydia's Substrate Safe Mode (which you should definitely do) you may find yourself with a tweak that constantly crashes or puts you in a boot loop. Here is how you can manually enter safe mode:

1. Reboot (unless your phone already is) by holding down the top button until the "Slide to power off" message appears.

enter safe mode manually to remove Cydia packages

2. Slide to power off.

3. Power on by holding down the top button again.

4. As soon as the Apple icon appears, hold down the volume up button. Hold until phone has fully rebooted.

5. At this point you will be in safe mode and you can go to Cydia and remove the offending package. Note: All Cydia packages should be inactive at this point, though we've seen a few that continue to load anyway.

6. The next time you reboot without holding down the volume up button, you will be out of safe mode and your Cydia packages will load.

Today I was installing some tweaks and getting the new version of my old ones when, the installation screen crases (Reloading Data...) I had to close cydia from multitasking and then my iPhone crashed. I restarted my phone and ir kept on the apple logo... I got in a big trouble now because I can not turn on my cellphone with cydia and the tweaks. I thing I got inffected by some bugs... I was not installing any unofficial tweaks (I am not crazy haha) HELP ME PLEAAAASE. I cant "completely turn on" my cellphone. Actually, the Substrate Safe Mode is not working. It doesn't boot in safe Mode... :( so bad

You just save my Iphone live!!!, Thanks :D (Works in IOS 9.0.2)

Thank you so much!

Thank You!
Your tip saved me a lot of time and aggravation after installing BiteSMS for iOS 9 and instant crashes.

Thanks for the info, I am on 8.4 stuck with the shitty tweak updates that are coming for the ios 9 untethered jailbreak. My fault, if it was working well why the hell did I have to update... Anyway, It worked perfectly, I put it in safe mode and restored the old tweaks

dude let me suck your dick please after 8 hours i finally saw my lock screen!

I downloaded Convergence tweak for my iPhone 5S, but my phone got stuck in apple logo after I resprang my springboard. I thought it was the tweak so I managed to delete the Convergence tweak by holding the volume up and power button at once. After I deleted the tweak and resprang again, my Iphone is completely blank and shows no icon at all. It does gives me access to enter to my home screen but shows no apps at all. And whenever I pull down my notification center, it gets stuck in that forever and I have to restart it back again. I have tried puting it in safe mode and deleting other tweaks but now I cannot even get it in safe mode. I have found that restoring will solve this problem but I don't want to restore my iDevice. What could be other possible ideas guys? Can anyone please help me?

i'm not sure what I'm doing wrong, but this isn't working for me. i downloaded a tweak called notification tab remover, and it crashed my phone. it took about five minutes before it finally woke. the problem is that i have a semi-tethered jailbreak on my phone, so when i reboot in safe mode, i still can't access cydia to remove the damn tweak. every time i try to re-jailbreak the phone, it goes into a boot loop because of the tweak. is there anyway i can remove the tweak without being jailbroken?

thanks alots for solving my problem
(apple logo loop problem)

I've backed up my iPhone but it won't let me restore it to factory settings. I'm thinking something is corrupt in Cydia. I tried uninstalling Xcon because I think that's what the problem is, but it doesn't let me. It just keeps saying preparing to install. Do you think if I go in no substrate and delete a bunch of apps, then do a new backup, maybe it will let me restore to factory settings? I'm trying to load backup onto my new phone but I'm having trouble because I think my current backup is corrupt.

Doesnt work :/ iPhone 5s, iOS 9.3.3

Cydia just wont open... it opens for around half a second and closes...

oh my god thank you so much man! every time my phone reboots i get stuck at the apple logo and have to force shit down then wait an hour and a half then turn it on and PRAY it boots. Thank you!

I have held the volume up button for !0 minutes and nothing Iphone 6s ios 10.2

This did not work for me. My device is iOS 9.3.5 iPod 5. I tried multiple times. I guess maybe the tweak I have installed is the few that does not get disabled. How will I fix it this?
