The android operating system has some capabilities and functions that are usually helpful when the device stopped working optimally or in a way that we seek to access the system directly and also manipulate the internal functions of the device, many times We fall into the Android recovery without knowing how and also we cannot get out, in this article we will explain what the Android Recovery is and how to get out of it.
What is Android Recovery mode?
Like any operating system, be it a computer or a cell phone, they have a way of accessing the direct programming of the cell phone, that is, the BIOS of the system, which is basically the pure section of a system where we find options and functions to program or modify Accessibility options of our android device can sometimes become complex but it is usually simpler than it seems.
The recovery mode is activated and starts when the android system crashes, that is, when an internal file of the cell phone fails or a file is missing that does not allow the cell phone to operate as it should work, this as a system warning measure or also to start safe mode as a method to reset the cell phone, delete or erase some settings.
This mode is stored in a different partition from the system of our cell phone in this way it protects the configuration and location of important files, however something that the recovery mode has is that it is quite scarce in terms of manipulation options, we can find options for formatting, or clearing caches and also restoring configurations and system settings as factory .
How to access Recovery mode and how to get out of it?
Like a computer, our cell phone has commands that unlock or activate system functionalities, this may vary depending on certain cell phone brands or manufacturers but it has a standard to activate these functions, normally they are with the buttons of our cell phone but it can also be accessed from the same software.
To access the recovery, restart the cell phone and when it is nothing to start, press and hold the power button and the volume down button at the same time, some Samsung models vary this, so that the system recognizes the command and I sent you to the recovery of our android, once inside it you will have a set of options that you can see that go from options to clean the system to modify android modes.
You have to be careful not to press anything by mistake within the recovery mode, the touch is deactivated so the way to move and press is through the buttons of the cell phone, that is, the power button and the volume buttons that are to raise and lower the selection of our settings.
We can restart the cell phone from the factory if we have a virus on our device that is sabotaging the main functions of our android device and we cannot eliminate it, or if we want to clean it and have it as if it had never been used, these are some of the main functions it provides recovery mode.
We should not start to deactivate or clean sections of the cell phone that we do not know in this way because we can damage the operating system and leave it in a dead state where we will not be able to turn back because we will have damaged the mother system of android and the only solution would be to change recovery using a computer connected to a USB but this is more complicated than it seems.
The easiest way to exit the recovery mode is to leave it without pressing anything for a couple of minutes and the cell phone will restart again without starting the mode automatically, however within the recovery we can locate exit in one of the options, we move with the volume buttons as previously explained and then select exit with the on and off button.
If the cell phone continues to enter the recovery mode repeatedly and constantly, it may be because the BIOS is faulty or there is a virus that is sabotaging the system, it is advisable to take it to a specialized cell phone technician if our device has these failures, otherwise if We start to manipulate the recovery without knowing we can make the situation worse.
