i dont think that has anything to do with safe mode. if it doesnt even get to the lockscreen safe mode will be no help. did you install anything obvious before it wouldnt boot? or would it not boot at all

it worked after respring for a few days, then, this morning i got a black screen when i unlocked it (unresponsive). i did a hard restart (home and power button). now, its stuck with the boot logo (for the past 7 hours) and the rotating circle (with the circle sometimes stopping every 3-5 minutes for about one minute

If you have SBSettings, yes. Just tap power and choose safe mode.
