Default Safe Mode

Has anyone booted into this? Also, does anyone know what it means and what temporarily disabling third party apps mean?

No, I am not looking to exploit root this way, I'm not an idiot. Just wondering about this

safe mode launch only pre-installed apps (system folder) not third party apps (data folder)
If you want to launch third party app in safe mode, move it from app folder in data to app folder in system

Well yeah, I got that understanding already. I had a brain fart and due to lack of sleep was confused. I was originally trying to find download mode and since it's been forever since I've needed it with the S4 I forgot you had to hold down the Home button as well.
