    I found out how to enter safe mode - this is like safe mode in windows
    1. Install veency on your iphone/ipod - veency can be found on cydia
    2. connect to your iphone/ipod with a vnc server - I used tightvnc
    3. after you have connected, hold the sleep/wake button and slide to power off
    4. instead of turning off, your iphone/ipod will go into safe mode
    - if it does turn off, just turn it on again and the device will still go into safe mode

    To exit safe mode, simply respring or reboot your device
    :D Enjoy! :D
