Recovery mode is a way of updating or hard resetting your device, without needing to boot to the operating system. It's mostly used if your Galaxy M10 / M20 / M30 won't boot to the operating system anymore. Thankfully, all Samsung smartphones come with a built-in recovery mode, as not every Android device features one.
Recovery mode is mostly used for hard resetting the phone when it doesn't behave as it should and it's the easiest fix.
There are 3 ways of entering recovery mode on your Galaxy M10 / M20 / M30 and we will teach you all of them, so you can use the one you prefer the most or that works best for you.
Enter recovery mode on Galaxy M10 / M20 / M30 by using the buttons
This is by far the easiest method and it only requires some key combinations to enter recovery mode.
First you have to turn off your Galaxy M10 / M20 / M30. Then you have to press and hold the Power and Volume Up buttons for 10 seconds, until you see the Android logo.
Now you have to wait until you see the Android Recovery screen with all the options. You can navigate through the Recovery Mode by using the Volume Up and Volume Down buttons.
Enter recovery mode by ADB on Windows
This method is a bit more complicated and requires you to connect your Galaxy M10 / M20 / M30 to your Windows computer and download the USB Drivers.
After you download and install the USB or ADB Drivers on your computer, connect the phone through a USB cable.
Now you have to launch Command Prompt by pressing Windows + R keys simultaneously. In Command Prompt you have to navigate to
android-sdk-windows\platform-tools and enter the following command:
adb reboot recovery
Now your device should reboot and enter Recovery Mode. You can use the Volume Up and Volume Down keys to navigate through the settings.
