adb reboot recovery command is used to reboot an Android device into recovery mode using the Android Debug Bridge (ADB). Recovery mode is a separate bootable partition on Android devices that provides tools for system maintenance, recovery, and updating.
Here’s how you can use the command:
Connect your Android device to your computer via USB.
Open a command prompt or terminal on your computer.
Navigate to the directory where the ADB executable is located. This is often in the “platform-tools” directory within the Android SDK installation.
$ cd path/to/android-sdk/platform-tools
Run the following command:
$ adb reboot recovery
After executing this command, your device should reboot into recovery mode. In recovery mode, you can perform various tasks such as applying software updates, wiping the cache partition, factory resetting the device, and more.
Please note that the exact options and features available in recovery mode can vary between different devices and Android versions. Always refer to the specific instructions for your device and follow the manufacturer’s guidelines when using recovery mode. Performing certain actions in recovery mode, such as factory resets, can result in data loss, so proceed with caution.
