Reason: I have a nexus 7 with a broken volume down key.
Therefore it always boots into fastboot, and then then on start, boots into safe mode.
Steps taken to rectify button problem:
1. I have already replaced the Power & Volume Button Cable and it did not fix it. I am assuming that it is a mainboard issue.
2. I have also re-flashed 4.4.2 (KOT49H) factory image, just in case something was stuck.
So I was thinking if it could be solved via software (custom rom), by either disabling safe boot entirely or remapping keys early enough in the boot sequence.
Seems a shame for this thing to be almost useless (no 3rd party apps) just because of a broken volume button.
Any ideas would be much appreciated.
