Smartly using and managing your new LG F60 can be achieved if you first learn how to complete the basic Android operations that are featured by default on your smartphone. Thus, you should start by learning how enter recovery mode and how to perform a hard reset operation. After checking how to apply these processes, you should also consider in trying to boot fastboot mode on your LG F60. In that matter, you can anytime use the guidelines from below, as there you will find all the info that is related to the mentioned operation.
Fastboot mode is similar with the recovery environment. Both are hidden menus featured by default on your LG F60 and both environments must be used for completing various other operations. If recovery mode is required for maintenance, restoration and other similar procedures, the fastboot mode is usually required when you are dealing with update operations or with troubleshoot solutions. Thus, the first conclusion is that entering fastboot mode on LG F60 will be a must, if you will want to manually update your device, if you will want to downgrade your phone back to stock, or if you will want to unbrick your Android device.
Now, fastboot mode will be the same thing with bootloader mode. Both terms are defying the same aspect – the hidden menu that represents the user interface of the bootloader program – the small program that is initiated each time you boot or reboot your LG F60 (the program loads the Android OS and other start up software from ROM memory into the RAM partition). As you can see, managing and using fastboot mode is quite important as this environment is linking the internal system of your LG F60 with other features from your device.
Thus, in some situations, booting fastboot mode will be required also for custom operations such as gaining root access, flashing custom kernels, updating with custom ROMs, unlocking the bootloader, removing bloatware, overclocking your Android device, installing custom recovery images and so on.
The fastboot mode that is featured by default on your LG F60 is in fact the same thing with the download mode environment that we have pre installed on Samsung branded handsets – now maybe you can better understand why you need to learn how to complete this reboot sequence.
Now, as obvious, completing this tutorial isn’t implying in applying an unofficial operation. You will not lose your LG F60 warranty and you will not have to use complex and risky third party tools for being able to perform the steps from below. Moreover, this is a general guide that will work whether your phone is rooted, locked, installed with a custom ROM or with the stock Android OS, flashed with a custom recovery or with the stock recovery or running on a locked or unlocked bootloder. Therefore, you have all the reasons for checking the guidelines from below.
But, before doing so, the best will be to backup your data – complete the backup if you are planning to reach fastboot mode for applying an update or any other custom operation. By taking care of the backup you can temporarily save your personal data, info and accounts that are stored on your LG F60 – in this way you can avoid unpleasant situations from happening. Moreover, if you are just thinking in updating your phone with a custom ROM, don’t hesitate and complete a Nandroid backup too – you can save and restore the current Android OS that runs on your handset.
It is also important to charge your LG F60 before heading towards the steps from below. You see, if your phone gets turned off while you try to enter fastboot mode, your handset might get bricked. So, the best will be to plug in the charger if the battery power that is currently left on your phone, is less than 50%.
