One of the lesser known, but potentially very useful new features in Android 4.1 and higher (aka Jelly Bean), is the option to boot your device into Safe Mode. This is a power-user feature which can help you to get rid of rogue apps and troubleshoot issues...

extended power menus are also nice, but if people know what i'm talking about i bet they're already running a custom rom

You press and hold down the Reboot button in Cyanogenmod to get the safe boot menu, just putting it out there.

This man speaks the truth. Tried it on my HTC one x US version running a custom ROM.

Reboot or boot it up if shutdown. When phone booting up, tap the Menu button when it lights up and it will boot into safe mode. Same for SGNote 1/Note 2.

So if one boots the phone into safe mode and disovers the rougue app can it then be uninstalled?
If so, can this be applied to bloatware or other uninstallable apps? This would be a great workaround for that!
My phone is slated for upgrade to 4.1 later this week so I will try it.
