Yeah so i wrote this guide back in 2012, it is probably very out of date, i did update some stuff but id probably look elsewhere if these are not working. you should get newer adb files anyhow, i post modern ones on my loggingkit package here Github , there are binaries for windows, linux and mac

Hi there guys so i will be telling you how to reboot to recovery or boot loader directly from adb commands

It is pretty easy :eek:

1-Download adb and install adb drivers for your phone
2-extract the files to your c directory in a folder named adb(make one)
3-once the files are located in c:\adb go to start menu then search for cmd
4-do cd c:\adb
5-check for connectivity
adb devices
if your device is not listed, the drivers are not there
6-Finally, to reboot

For download mode (it varies from device to device)

adb reboot download (Samsungs)
or
adb reboot-bootloader ( HTC )

For Recovery Mode (it is mostly the same for most phones)

adb reboot recovery

thanks for reading.

I know thanks for replaying :)

Actually, the commands to reboot into bootloader are:
adb reboot-bootloader
or
adb reboot bootloader

Sent from my Desire S

I actually use the command ADB reboot-boot loader

but since reboot recovery won,t work like reboot-boot loader
i removed the slash so people can remember these commands easily ;)

most of the roms are having this inbuilt now,
but those who dont have, its really good to use.. :good:

you are right
these codes helped me alot
and i'm thinking if i can use the terminal emulator with these.
If yes then i can simply do a quickly reboot into recovery or bootloader using my Stock rom :)

Hi, I tried adb reboot recovery and the phone rebooted, shows the boot screen twice and booted into normal mode. What did I miss out?
