5.Let device power on without holding any buttons as normal Once the device is on the home screen, you should no longer see Safe mode. Hope this helps, good luck.
I have the same problem, I got stuck in safe mode after replacing my cracked screen.
I did exactly what is suggested by 'kenxda33' above
and I did the following too:
1) Factory Reset from the settings menu.
2) Wipe Partition and Reset through recovery mode,
3) Upgraded the phone to Android 4.2.2 using Odin
4) Dissembled the phone and removed the volume buttons and switched it on.
and still I have the same problem,
