Default [Q] Recovery on Galaxy 10.1

Anyone know of a way to get into recovery mode (botton combo, one-click, etc.) on the 10.1 tab without having android sdk and adb installed on my PC? I am not new at flashing files in recovery mode, but going through help files/instructions on adk is a bit overwhelming.

I have the root zip file on my tab, I just need to get into recovery mode to flash it.

Thanks in advance...

It isn't possible without adb on a non-rooted device. You can attempt to boot into recovery mode by holding power and volume down on start up and selecting the android guy with "downloading" but it will say: "waiting for usb" and hang there. I was attempting to do this the other night.

Getting into recovery is dead simple though once you have adb going. Go to the android development section and go to rooting your tablet. Download the drivers > connect to the computer > run adb in command prompt once you have your sdk installed > then if you have your drivers fully installed and usb debugging mode is on just type in command prompt "adb reboot recovery" and it will send you directly to recovery mode to flash any zip file you please.

I've been trying to boot into recovery for a while now, but with no luck. I installed the full SDK platform, and the Manager app downloaded and installed all the available packages (took forever). The 'push' command seemed to work fine, and when I do "adb reboot recovery" the tablet reboots, but just goes into the battery charging screen. Any idea why this might be happening, and what I can do to get into recovery?

The mode that says "downloading" is not recovery mode. Just select the one on the left and you will get into stock recovery mode (unless you already have Clockwork installed).

I managed to do that, but it wouldn't show anything on my '/sdcard' directory, even when I renamed the root package to "update.zip"

In red, it says "E:unknown volume for path [/sdcard]" Not sure if I'm getting into real, stock recovery, or what - seems crazy that stock wouldn't be able to access its own sdcard directory.

Default Battery not recovery mode

I am in a similar situation, when I use adb to run recovery mode it sends me to teh battery charging screen. With the exception of that they only other things I can do are to hold power and vol to get option of using Fastboot or ODIN. I do not have any options ever to chose to go into recovery mode. Anyone know why this may be? I am running 3.1 IO version.

Thanks

You will need fastboot and recovery.img to boot into recovery in order to perform a factory reset.
Installing the sdk works best, as drivers needed are acquired from the process! ELse there are extracted contents available on net including just the drivers, adb (and fastboot!)

I don't think the stock retail recovery is capable of flashing off SD storage. That's why the current rooting methods have you first flash either I/O recovery or a custom recovery.

The manual says to press the power and UP VOL button to get into recovery mode for update flash or wipe data ..

Pressing power and DOWN VOL enters fastboot mode
