Android as an operating system comes with a separate bootable partition we call recovery mode. It’s important we have this special recovery mode available for when something goes wrong with our smartphone or tablets. If you ever have a virus, bug, or the mobile device just isn’t acting right, you can boot it in the recovery mode and effectively recover the device. Once you boot the OnePlus two smartphone in the recovery mode, you can perform a factory reset, delete the cache partition, apply official software updates and wipe the data.
When it comes to fixing problems, you should wipe the cache partitions and wipe the data, followed by a factory reset. If that doesn’t help the issue, you can wipe the current stock Android ROM by updating to a newer software update that’s available for your OnePlus two smartphone. All options are extremely efficient at improving the quality of your device, but software updates are not always readily available. We rely on Android, OEMs and phone carrier networks to team up and provide a staged roll out of software updates. Furthermore, once the device ages, software updates become less consistent until finally the device is no longer supported by any software updates. At these times, the factory reset is your only option.
Entering Recovery Mode On The OnePlus Two
- Completely Power down the OnePlus 2 smartphone by quickly pressing the Power key and choosing to switch it off.
- Those who cannot get that first step of switching off to work can long-press the Power key and get the device to shut down.
- Press the Power button and at the same time hold the Volume Up button.
- Do not let go of either key until you can see the Fastboot menu displayed on the device.
- Select the Recovery Mode from the Fastboot menu using the Volume keys to scroll and the Power key to select.
- Once you are in the recovery mode, you can use the same Volume and Power keys for the same operations.
- Select the ‘Reboot System Now’ option when you want to boot the device back to the normal mode.
