Default Boot into Fastboot or Recovery

While the phone is off hold down "Volume down key" and the "power button"

*use volume keys to go up or down
*fastboot is locked so there is no options available besides "fastboot reboot"
*boot into recovery "option"

Just thought I'd post for you all to know this.

Thank you. That seems to be the same on all the HTC's. I used that method on a MyTouch 3G
Motorola Droid Maxx
Verizon Wireless

you should update the original post. either optical button or vol down to enter bootloader for one and...

once you are in bootloader do this.

-press vol down to hover over recovery
-press power button to select recovery
-once you reach screen with exclamation and device hold volume up and press power

you can now wipe device or flash an update

I did this accidentally yesterday turning on my phone. It freaked me out for a moment reminding me of the screen that came up when I leak-updated my Eris. What's "fastboot reboot" for?

thanks for this great mod !

I installed it successfully, and my questions now are:

1) to get back to my old system, i just have to boot into GoAPK ClockworkMod Recovery, wipe cache&data and restore the backup i made? or do i also have to flash a sbf-file with RSD Lite?

2) (updated) google maps : rotation doesn't work, is that normal (defy not a supported device) ?

thanks for your help
