Recovery mode can be a lifesaver when your device won’t boot up so today we’re going to look at a tutorial for the HTC One M9 recovery mode.
I talk about a lot of amazing modifications that we can do to Android smartphones and tablets but sometimes those things can get out of hand. If something messes up though, things can go wrong very badly. While this doesn’t happen often, it can be something as small as a setting chosen incorrectly or installing an app or mod that isn’t made for your device. Oddly enough, there is no longer a recovery mode for the HTC One M9. Since HTC removed Fastboot Mode for a Download Mode, that is where you will do all of the recovery tasks that you need.
So, in order to get into what we used to call the Recovery Mode for the HTC One M9, we’re going to boot up into the Fastboot Mode. . .aka the Download Mode with the tutorial below.
HTC One M9 Recovery Mode
- Boot the HTC One M9 into Fastboot Mode
- From Here You Can Factory Reset or Issue ADB Commands
This tutorial is very short because most of the steps required to get into the HTC One M9’s recovery mode is done by booting into the M9’s fastboot/download mode. Getting into the M9’s fastboot mode is something I showed you how to do yesterday and it requires you to hold down the Power and Volume Down buttons at the same time while the device is starting to boot up. If you followed the previous tutorial correctly then you should be taken into the HTC One M9’s fastboot mode.
Just like how these menus have always been, the way to navigate through this menu is by using the Volume Up and Volume Down buttons to control the highlighter. Once you highlight the option you are looking for, you’ll want to press the Power button to select it. From here, you can do things like perform a factory reset, reboot to the bootloader, show the barcode, execute ADB and Fastboot commands a few other useful tasks.
