What do you do when your phone says Android system recovery?
"Android System Recovery" can be used to boot system, update system from ADB, cache or external hard drive, wipe data, do hard reset/factory reset, wipe cache partition. Usually, the android system recovery stuck problem is resulted from damaged buttons or just hardware issues.
Apply update from ADB: The Android Debug Bridge allows you to plug your device into your PC and issue commands from there. It's designed for developers and requires you to install the Android SDK (software development kit).
- ADB sideload is a new feature that was added to AOSP recovery in Jelly Bean. As of version 2.3, TWRP now supports ADB sideload mode. ADB sideload is a different ADB mode that you can use to push and install a zip using one command from your computer.
- Rebooting the phone means to turn off your phone and turn it back on again. To reboot the phone, disconnect the cord supplying the electrical power to the phone and plug it in back into the same port a few seconds later.
- Before your computer can use any kind of storage device (such as a hard drive, CD-ROM, or network share), you or your operating system must make it accessible through the computer's file system. This process is called mounting. You can only access files on mounted media.
Rebooting is simply a case of tapping the Reboot button from the TWRP main screen. You can select to reboot the System (Android), to Power Off, to reboot Recovery, or to boot to the Bootloader. This powers on the device but boots no software, and allows you to access a bricked device via a USB connection to your PC.
- Team Win Recovery Project (TWRP) is an open-source software custom recovery image for Android-based devices. It provides a touchscreen-enabled interface that allows users to install third-party firmware and back up the current system, functions often unsupported by stock recovery images.
- Install via ADB
- Open the folder where your TWRP Recovery .img file is saved.
- Then open a CMD window inside that folder.
- Connect your Android device to the PC.
- Once your device boots into bootloader mode, type this into the command line.
- I assume you're asking what it means to reboot to the bootloader, on an Android phone. You can boot into 3 different modes on Android: system, recovery, and bootloader/download. Rebooting to system is just normal Android. If you boot to recovery, you can do stuff like factory reset your phone or install updates.
