    Default Safe mode crashing

    Hi,

    I was trying to enter safe mode on my moto g to see if battery drain was still there.

    But the problem is as soon as I enter safe mode the moto g crashes..

    It's showing that ''launcher'' + ''settings'' have stopped working so i can't even acces the phone at all in safe mode...

    Does anyone have the some problem or possibly now a solution?

    Thanks.

    Welcome to the forums. I have not seen that before. What is the reason you need to reboot into safe mode?

    Nor sure if it's poor for the G. Could you post some screenshots of the battery stats please?

    Well the thing is i see alot of people getting at least 4-5 hours on wifi. And since i bought the phone for it's "great" battery life, I'm kinda dissapointed.

    Because i could get these stats easy on my nexus 4 so..

    Still it doesn't explain why safe mode is crashing on me :/

    Sorry, forgot about that part. Have you tried a cache clear in recovery?

    Are you using a different launcher? Safe mode disables all 3rd party apps. Maybe that is part of the problem.

    Well, good luck. If you do find something out please post it for others who may have the same issue.

    I will !

    I tried removing ''dashnotifier'' since that message also showed up, and i did set the stock launcher as my default launcher, but still the same ''launcher has crashed'' issue shows up so..

    Will keep this thread posted if anything new comes up.

    So you're disappointed that your moto G can be alive for almost 2 days?
    I wish I could do that

    Well, the thing you should consider that it was in airplane mode for 2 times..

    I dont think i would make it to 2 days if i wasnt using that,

    Just curious then, how long does your G last?

    Press the power button, then hold down your finger on power off, you should see boot into safe mode

    If I'm doing my maths right your screen is drawing an average of just over 9%/hour of use - that's pretty high - mine tends to average out at about 5%/hour on Auto Brightness if I'm mostly using the device indoors so actual brightness is at the lower end of the scale. What are your brightness settings - the power draw difference between minimum and maximum brightness is huge.

    Also this is just a theory and may not be the case with modern tech, but if there is a higher power draw needed to initially light the backlight your pattern of repeated screen start ups (presumably from the ACDisplay app) may be contributing to a higher than normal overall drain associated with the screen.


    The Maths.

    Battery drop on graph is 100% - 27% = 73%
    The screen has used 39% of that 73%. 73% x 0.39 = 28.47% - this is the actual percentage of your battery that has been used by the screen.
    The screen is reporting to be active for 182 minutes.
    Power draw per minute on is 28.47% / 182 = 0.156%/min
    Power draw per hour is 0.156% x 60 = 9.38%.

    I'm also using autp brightness so.. Also indoor mostly. And acdisplay isnt turning my screen on for most of the times because im using active mode.
