The stock recovery image that comes pre-installed on any Android device can be used for various reasons. For example you can enter recovery mode on your LG G2 for making a hard reset (also known as factory reset), for applying an OTA update, for clearing cache and for other similar operations. Furthermore, then, you can choose to replace the stock recovery with a custom recovery image like CWM or TWRP recovery. Now, by using a custom recovery you can perform other operations that are also unofficial such as gaining root access, installing a custom kernel, or updating with a custom ROM firmware.

But, regardless the motif, if you need to enter recovery mode on your LG G2, the process will be the same. As you will see below, the method used is the classic one so you don’t have to download, install or use a custom app. Basically you will use the Volume Up and Down along with the Power key in order to boot into recovery. Also, by using a combination of the buttons specified above you can also enter Download Mode on your LG G2, but that process will be explained in a different, though similar, step by step guide.

    All it did was take me to factory hard reset. Does not go into recovery mode.

  • Ninja4914

    @michaelheilman:disqus That’s about all that is accessible to and viable for you. The only way to unbrick your phone atm is to perform a hard (factory) reset. You need to install either CWM, TWRP, or any other third party software to access the recovery screen.

    you ASSHAT!
    THIS IS NOT RECOVERY MODE!

    • Duke

      No, if you have a custom recovery installed it won’t factory reset when you follow the prompts. You are in fact the asshat in this occasion for not researching or trying before commenting. it asks if you want to factory reset so you press power to confirm and power again then it will load the recovery. If you actually do factory reset then you did not install the recovery properly.
