Flash a custom kernel, then install a ROM through the recovery.
It's that simple.

We need to know if you have an Unlocked bootloader, if you have a custom kernel installed at the moment, and if it's a custom rom that you want to flash.....

If your bootloader is unlocked and it's a custom rom you want then the menu button is the only one you need

You might have a broken menu button which doesnt trigger properly, I had a waterdamaged phone with this issue a while ago and I fixed it by replacing the secondary board with microphone and buttons.

Guys, i have unlocked bootloader and currently using MIUI 5 because it's the exceptional rom that i'ved used without any issue while
using GB, ICS & Jelly bean will always end up in SAFE MODE.

to Devstaff, how did you replaced your secondary board with microphone and buttons ?

Thank you ...
