Pressing up and down reboots the phone, restarts recovery, and powers off.
Any idea what this screen is? And like, what I can use it for to get a new rom installed?
Picture is kinda big.
That's the bootloader, press volume keys and it will change the part that says start to fastboot, recovery or restart bootloader (I think) press power and it will select whichever is shown on the top of the screen where "START" is.
If you choose recovery and press power it will load into recovery and you can flash another ROM or restore a backup.Will it go into recovery when doing what I suggest?
If going to recovery doesn't do anything or just reboots to that screen you might not have a custom recovery installed.
If it does not, follow this guide for the teeny bin and it will install an unlocked bootloader and custom recovery.
