Tuesday 13th of July 2010
If your phone is currently running Android Froyo FRF91 as downloaded from Google or the OTA update, here is how to unlock your bootloader and root your phone.Unlock the bootloaderDetailed instructions here, but essentially boot into fastboot and issue the fastboot oem unlock command. Note that this will do a factory restore, but if you've enabled web backup, all your applications will be downloaded again upon reboot. Boot normally to ensure everything is running fine after the restore..Flash the Amon-RA recovery imageDownload the latest image and follow directions here.

cyanogenmod - How to boot the Mele A1000 in recovery mode
Saturday 30th of March 2013
I installed CWM on my Mele A1000 and I was able to reboot into recovery modeusing adb.At which point I got the CWM menu where I was able to install files from SD, wipe cache etc...After installing all the files (Cyanogen) I rebooted, now when the device starts all I see is the Cyanogen splash screen for a few minutes and then a message indicating: Encryption Unsuccessful. Encryption was interrupted and can't complete. As a result the data on your tablet is no longer accessible. To resume using your tablet, you must perform a factory reset. When you set up your tablet after the reset ....This message looks like it's part of the standard Android system.Since CWM is installed I should be able to access it in order to install somethingelse,but I cannot figure out how to reboot in recovery/cwm mode. There is no hardware button other than the power button on the Mele A1000
unbricking - How do I enter recovery mode on my Motorola Milestone 2 to unbrick it?
Monday 13th of August 2012
I own a Motorola Milestone 2, also called A953 (apparently this is different from the Droid 2 Global). It used to have Android 2.3 with Motoblur middleware. It was bought independently from any phone carrier (so it was not bought from Verizon for instance). I rooted it, installed ROM Manager, Droid 2 Global Recovery Bootstrap and ClockworkMod Recovery. From ROM Manager, I could successfully reboot my phone into Recovery mode, allowing me to back-up my data for instance. Until this stage everything went fine.What lead to my problem : I also wiped the cache and installed CyanogenMod 7.2 and the Google apps from ZIP files and from the Recovery Mode interface. But now my phone is broken. When it now boots, it shows the stylised M logo, but then switches to an entire black screen. The phone is still on so I have to pull the battery to shut it down.I would like to reboot into Recovery Mode but this doesn't work : I am never able to see the Recovery Mode logo (a warning sign with a little android). How should I do it ?What I have tried : I tried to boot while holding the Power and
Can't reboot into recovery
Sunday 05th of May 2013
I just got a Nexus 7 tablet. I used m.sabra's 1-click method to unlock the bootloader, root, and install SuperSU and TWRP. It worked like a champ, and I thought I was good to go for installing all my apps/data from my previous tablet using the update.zip files I created with TiBu. I have the zip files in place on my Nexus 7, but I can't boot into recovery to install them.Using both the manual boot method (Power + Vol down) and from inside apps (TiBu, ROM Toolbox, Quickboot) I can get into the bootloader menu just fine, but when I choose to go into Recovery Mode from there it simply goes to the white "Google" screen and then back into the normal boot process. I never get to the dead-looking Android guy with the exclamation mark.How do I boot into recovery so I can install the update.zip files?
Evo 4G update is pushing out now, here's how to manually update
Thursday 23rd of September 2010
So the maintenance release for the Evo 4G -- you know, the one that tackles the 30fps thing, among other fixes -- is finally starting to hit phones. But if your Evo's wearing a sad face, you can update it manually. Don't worry, it's the same update you'd get if you did it over the air. Here's what you need to do: Download the update from this link. Rename it to update.zip (but be sure not to rename it update.zip.zip). Save it to your Evo's microSD card. Time to reboot into recovery mode. Turn the phone off. Then hold the volume down button, and press the power button. You should boot to a white screen with three Android guys on skateboards. Use the volume button to select RECOVERY, and press the power button again. The Evo will now reboot into recovery. You should see a render of a phone, with a red triangle and exclamation point. Hold the volume up button and press the power button. Chooseapplysdcard:update.zip. Let it do its thing. Reboot, and that's it. You've manually updated your Evo 4G. No muss, no fuss, and no waiting. Now head on into our Evo 4G forums and share what you
Boot loop after using mobile Odin. Can't get into recovery
Saturday 30th of March 2013
My friend was trying to unroot/unzip his s3 and go back to stock firmware. He used android rootz website since he doesn't have a PC. They have a thread where you can do that process without using a PC. He did everything and when it went to reboot to get into recovery, it just has the blue android guy and it keeps boot looping. I tried to get him to get it into recovery mode and download mode but it won't go past the boot loop and it does it multiple times over and over; won't stop.I've seen some other threads on this on various sites (tried googling and reading for over an hour) and couldn't find anything that can help us. If you have a solution or something other than trying to go into download or recovery mode, please let me know. He has a Mac but not a PC, lives 1500 miles away from me and won't know how to install windows on his Mac unless I was there. Anyway, any help is appeciated, I'll continue to monitor this thread and search for other solutions and will update or delete when I do. Thanks.
My EVO 3D won't boot into recovery mode anymore.
Monday 03rd of June 2013
My EVO 3D (Sprint) is rooted and is on android version 2.3.4 and I believe it's not an android official release, this is how it was given to me. I'm trying to install CM10.1 I installed ClockworkMod 18.104.22.168 using ROM Manager and since then I haven't been able to boot into recovery mode. I can get into bootloader but not recovery. I've tried powering it on with the volume button down, using the recovery reboot option, and tried using "Reboot into Recovery" in ROM Manager, but I keep seeing the same thing. It boots with the HTC logo then goes black then at this point i believe I should be seeing recovery mode but instead I see the HTC logo again and then it just boots like normal. Is there something I did wrong and is there a way to get recovery to work again? Thank you
can't get into cwm recovery mode
Friday 18th of October 2013
I have an lg esteem running zve and I used the aio from this site to root it and install cwm. That part seemed to go well, no errors. The instructions go on to say to install quick boot(reboot) from app store and restart phone into recovery boot mode and run a backup. Well I did all that but when it restarted it would show the little android guy standing next to a triangle with a yellow exclamation point in it. I can restart it by holding the pwr button and it reboots normally. So I try the hold the pwr button and vol +/- buttons and it comes up in a different mode and I hit the pwr button three times. It resets my phone back to original factory settings and all my downloaded apps are gone. So how can I get past the little android guy and get it to boot into recovery mode and is there any way to get my old apps back? I never got a chance to run backup since I never got into recovery mode.

Can't start in recovery mode
Sunday 10th of November 2013
I bought a 32GB N7 from ebay. It had Paranoid Android on, so I downloaded and flashed the JWR66N stock ROM from https://developers.google.com/android/nexus/images, including updating the bootloader. It all works fine, but I've just noticed that holding power + vol up + vol down doesn't start in recovery mode. In fact it doesn't start at all. Worse, after attempting a recovery start the N7 won't turn on at all and I have to hold the power button in for 20 seconds to get the tablet to start.Is this likely to be something left over from the Paranoid Android installation that I haven't managed to wipe? If so, does anyone know how to fix this? It's not a problem at the moment, but one day I might need to start in recovery mode."adb reboot recovery" does boot into recovery mode. In fact that's how I flashed the stock ROM. So recovery mode is working fine. It's just that power + vol up + vol down won't boot into it.
