How to Enter Recovery Mode on an Android Phone

How to enter recovery mode on an android phone – First of all we have to know what is recovery mode? In short, recovery means recovery, update, or it can also be interpreted as repair. Recovery mode is a menu system that serves to be used as a recovery on Android devices. On smartphones that have the Android operating system, not all of them are equipped with a recovery mode, but most have been equipped with a recovery mode. Before entering recovery mode on an Android phone, it would be nice to back up your data first, this is so that when an error occurs, your data on the Android device is not lost/deleted.

The following are the steps to enter recovery mode, including:

  1. Make sure your Android cellphone battery is sufficient.
  2. Turn off your android phone. Because if the android phone is not turned off, it will not be able to enter recovery mode. So make sure the android phone is really turned off.
  3. Press the power button, volume up, and home simultaneously. Wait a few moments and then a display like the image below will appear.
