Re: Can't get out of Emergency mode

I don't know if this clue will help, but the "Vibrate on touch" box in the Security & Screen Lock settings keeps getting checked every time I reboot. I uncheck it (I prefer no vibration), but it doesn't stay that way I power back up.

It doesn't help directly, except I can tell you that it should not auto-toggle off to on and I can't see how FoxFi that has now been uninstalled would affect that setting.  Let's go back to safe mode again, two questions, when in safe mode is the PIN menu displayed at that point?  Also prior to entering safe mode if you have "vibrate on touch" toggled off, does it remain toggled off in safe mode?  I have this feeling that the solution to this is going to either be very simple or it's going to require a factory data reset.     --- Dan

I'm back in Safe Mode now. Yes, the PIN menu is the first screen that appears. Vibrate on touch is NOT checked in safe mode, I had unchecked it before I powered down for this Safe Mode test.  I really, really, really like simple.....very much dislike factory data reset.

I just did this again on my phone and what I just said will absolutely work. You don't even need to reboot the phone.

Does this cause other apps to not work?

Just clear credentials and everything will go back to normal. The lock features will not be greyed out anymore and you can set it to None or what ever other one you want.

Well, we've danced all the way around this because I've never tried to clear all credentials on my phones, never had the occasion to...it's suggested that settings > security > clear credentials will, at minimum, we hope, take care of the PIN entry requirement...it remains to be seen if it will also address the "vibrate on touch" problem with that action.  After you've cleared the credentials, turn off your phone and then turn it back on and then test for the PIN menu to be gone.     --- Dan

It shouldn't affect any other apps unless they have installed a certificate.



Foxfi is the only app that I have seen on the phone that has actually installed a certificate. I think you will be fine.
