Default Recovery Mode?

Hello all!

I'm a relatvely new user when it comes to the world of rooting, so I'm still pretty lost when comes to most things. I got my new F6 last week, and I am loving every bit of it. I even rooted it get a bit more control out of it.

However, I've run into a problem: I cannot reboot into recovery mode! Every single post, link, or picture had implied that I could -or, at the very least, use Clockwork Recovery. But nothing is working!

Any tips on what I should do?

Thanks for the help!

to boot into recovery you can hold volume down plus power, but it will factory reset. to get into recovery without reseting, you have to use a rebooter app, or just do adb reboot recovery from a pc. also you need to have a custom recovery installed

Ohhh... I have tried all of those, except the abd reboot recovery. I don't have access to a computer right now, but how do you do that?

Google for the phrase "adb only adb" for some links to download adb without having to install the entire development system (the latter is a series of downloads over 2Gbytes in size, but the adb by itself is a few Mbytes).

You'll also need the LG USB drivers for Windows.

You would also need to visit settings on the phone, enable USB debugging (it's an option grayed out if the USB cable is connected, so set it without the cable plugged in) - and set the PC connection type to 'media' - the second option.

With those installed and working, the command line is literally adb reboot recovery.

IMO adb is a required tool for a rooted device - the feature set and capability is part of what rooting a device is about.

You can also use rom toolbox, or even terminal emulator. Just type reboot recovery
