Every Android device has a recovery mode, which is called stock recovery and can be accessed with a hardware key combination. In recovery mode, users can carry out various administrative tasks such as backup/restore/flash ROM, kernel, and system files, wipe data, and make a factory reset and more. Users can also install custom recovery, which is suitable for development tasks. ClockWorkMod (CWM) and TWRP (TeamWin) recovery are popular among them.
In order to boot your Android device into recovery mode, you need to use a hardware key combination. For example, press Power + Volume Up + Home button in Samsung Galaxy Note to boot it into recovery mode.
Each device has its own key combination to boot into recovery mode. If you can’t remember all that key combinations or don’t know what is your device’s key combination, here is a simple solution.
