There are a number of different boot modes which are available on Android devices. One of these is called Recovery Mode and it can help you perform a number of different tasks without booting into Android. So this step by step guide will walk you through the entire process of booting the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 into Recovery Mode.
9 times out of 10 people who are booting the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ into Recovery Mode are those who want (or need) to do a factory data reset. Yes, there is a way to do a data reset from within Android but people usually don’t actively go out and reset their phone. Instead, they tend to do a factory reset when they can’t boot into Android.
I don’t want to go into too many details here, but you can do a lot more than just a factory reset from within Recovery Mode though.
I will cover the other important things that we can do from Android’s stock Recovery Mode in future tutorials. For now, let’s just focus on teaching you how to boot into and out of this special boot mode using the Galaxy Note 10 series.
How to Boot the Galaxy Note 10 into Recovery Mode?
- Turn off the smartphone
- Then press and hold the Volume Up and Power buttons at the same time
- Wait until you see the blue splash screen, then let go of these two buttons
It’s quite easy to do once you understand the thing that triggers the boot mode. So after you get the smartphone in a powered down state, just hold those two buttons until you see the blue splash screen. You’ll want to let go of them once you see that screen because keeping them pressed down for too long will force the Galaxy Note 10 to reboot.
Assuming you have booted into the stock Android recovery screen (as shown in the video), you’ll need to navigate the menu with the hardware buttons.
How to Boot the Galaxy Note 10 Out of Recovery Mode?
If you’re using TWRP though, then the custom recovery has enabled the touch screen. For most of us though, we’re going to stick with the stock recovery so that it’s easier for us to install official OTA updates. If you have installed TWRP though then I assume you already know how to boot out of the custom recovery.
So the following is for those who are still using the stock Android recovery software. To get out of Recovery Mode and boot the Galaxy Note 10 back to the Android OS we need to make sure the Reboot System Now option is highlighted. It should be highlighted by default but you can press the Volume Up and Volume Down buttons to change which option is highlighted.
When you’re ready, press the Power button to select the Reboot System Now option.
You’ll see the Galaxy Note 10 or Galaxy Note 10+ restart and (hopefully) take you right back into Android. If you are not taken into Android and are forced back into Recovery Mode (or Fastboot Mode), then you may need to do a Factory Reset because there is something wrong with the system of your Android OS install.
