Is anyone able to get any options when booting into the stock recovery? It used to be that even if you didn't have a custom recovery, you could boot into Android recovery and factory reset as well as wipe the dalvik cache.

No idea how. Got into recovery, but since we have a Volume rocker we can't press both at the same time to get past the first screen. No idea what button combination works....

I dont have a Turbo yet, but my guess getting into recovery should be similar to Maxx:

1. With the phone powered off, press the VOL DOWN KEY for 2-3 seconds then POWER key then release.

2. The device will display different BOOT OPTIONS

3. Use the VOL DOWN Key to SCROLL to Recovery and VOL UP Key to select

Tip: If the device reboots, you may have waited to long to make a selection, you will need to begin the process again.

4. The device will display the Motorola logo and then the Android in distress ( logo with Exclamation mark)

5. Press and hold the VOL UP key for 10-15 seconds. While still holding the VOL UP key tap and release the POWER key

Tip: You can try this step, holding the phone in landscape. If you are stuck on step 6, try a force reboot by pressing the Power key and Vol Down key, and start the process again.

6. The device should be in recovery

This will remove any temporary files that may be causing the problem, but will not delete your files or settings.

1. With the phone powered off, press the VOL DOWN KEY for 2-3 seconds then POWER key then release.

2. The device will display different BOOT OPTIONS

Tip: You can try this step, holding the phone in landscape. If you are stuck on step 6, try a force reboot by pressing the Power key and Vol Down key, and start the process again.

6. The device will display additional menu options (Text will appear in BLUE)

7. Use the VOL DOWN Key to scroll to wipe cache partition and the POWER Key to select this option

8. The device will then perform the partition wipe

9. The device will reboot and start the normal power up sequence

Ahh... I completely forgot about holding the volume button down that long after getting into recovery.

Thank you!

Great!

But the wipe froze on my device and I had to reboot. Second wipe froze as well. Odd.

Mine did not freeze, however the wipe took what seemed to be 3-5 minutes... Longest cache wipe ever???

Edit: also did not get any sort of "upgrading OS" or "upgrading apps" message like on my previously rooted devices... Just the standard insanely fast boot.

Weird.

Recovery Options changed for Lolli

FYI, Wipe cache took 8 minutes on my phone and I've heard reports of up to 21 minutes.


Wipe Cache Partition - DROID TURBO by Motorola
[Device-Specific Instructions]
If apps freeze/hang, your device crashes/resets, you can't view email attachments or website images or your data isn't syncing, wiping your cache partition may help.

Caution Performing a wipe cache partition removes any temporary files that may be causing an issue with the device. All personal files and settings aren't affected by this option.

1. Ensure the device is powered off.
2. Press and hold the Volume Down button and Power button (located on the right edge of the device) for approximately 3 seconds then release.
3. From the 'Boot Mode Selection Menu' screen, select Recovery mode.
Note Utilize the Volume buttons to scroll through the menu options and the Power button to select.
4. From the 'Android system recovery' screen (Android figure lying on his back), press and hold the Power button then press and release the Volume Up button to display the menu options.
5. Select wipe cache partition.
Note Utilize the Volume buttons to scroll through the menu options and the Power button to select.
Note The process may take 60 to 90 seconds to complete.
6. Select reboot system now.
Note The device may take 60 to 90 seconds to restart.
