Hey guys, this is my first time starting a thread on this site, so please bear with me for a bit. Earlier today my S2 was working fine, i was browsing the net, chatting and etc. But when i started my "whats app" it started lagging for a bit, because i was chatting to a group. Then all of a sudden when i lock my phone and later on unlocked it, it said the phone was running on "Safe Mode". Soo i google'd "how to exit safe mode on galaxy" and it gave me a few solutions, one of them told me to switch off the phone and remove the battery for a minute. I did that, and all of a sudden when i unlock my phone, applications keep crashing including the interface itself ("TWLauncher" i guess that's its name) Soo please help me as i don't know much about this. My phone is not even rooted, i could manage to open the task manager but that's all. I can't even use the usb as it will crash again. All help would be greatly appreciated =)

*small update* I could access my settings and i could switch to the ics launcher but i still can't use the net and stuff =S
Basically I've noticed the default apps that comes with the phone are acting up :S

If you are not bothered about your installed apps and data and you can manage to go to settings/ Privacy / Factory Data reset.....have a try

You have not backed up your data ??? Nor do you have a nandroid backup ???

If so you need to access the internal storage of the phone via USB mass storage and copy off what you can .

Alternative methods such as rooting and installing a no wipe custom rom will probably keep your data but void warranty .

Problem is, i never backed up my data =S
And i can't access the USB mass storage, the thing keeps crashing and telling me to "force close" even if i try reporting the wifi isn't connecting to the network soo things are really messed up =S
I don't mind rooting my phone, as long as you could provide me a step by step guide on how to root my phone without loosing my data.

My phone version is 2.3.3
Kernel Version (if this is important :S) is 2.6.35.7-19100
Soo i really don't know what to do now. Luckily i already had ICS installed soo i could switch between that and twlauncher but still same problems i can't access my initially installed apps that came with the phone such as (internet,clock,calender,gallery and etc.) But the downloaded apps that don't require internet access are running fine.

are you able to open application "my files" ?

if you are still not able to access your phone from PC, then you can copy and paste your stuffs to external SD using "my files".

Give the complete detailes when you see about phone or dail *#1234#

If you are not worried about your applications you just do factory reset of the phone and try
settings/privacy/factory data reset

if you are not able to do this,

Volume Up + Home + Power brings your Phone into Recovery Mode.

Volume up: Highlight up
Volume down: Highlight down
Home: select
Power: back

select wipe data factory reset
