    This is your guide as to how to reboot into Recovery. I have noticed many users do not know how to do this, so I figured I would write a step by step guide with photos on how to do it.

    I will be using my Tab 2 as a demonstration unit, and for screen shots as visual aids.

    [TIP]Rebooting into recovery or even knowing how to use it can be very helpful. Being stuck in a boot loop, apps crashing, or just a general clearing of problems can be fixed using this method.[/TIP]

    Step 1: Power down the device. Pulling the battery will work as well, especially if you are caught in a boot loop.

    Step 2: Allow the device to completely shut down. Waiting until your screen is off, or just giving it a full minute or two should suffice.

    Step 3a: For the Galaxy S2 and Tab 2, you will need to hold Volume Up and Power at the same time until you see the Samsung logo appear. Then release.

      3b: For the Galaxy S3, you will need to hold the volume up, home, and power button at the same time until you see the Samsung logo, and then release.

    Step 4: For all variants mentioned, you should now be looking at a menu list with a blue highlighted bar. Using the volume rockers will navigate through the menus, and generally power is your accept button. The S2 might have a little twist. Upon getting into recovery, you can push up, down, up to enable the back button. This also allows to use the power button as the accept button. See figure 1.

    Important note: When navigating around in recovery and you select something, you may be redirected to a page with about a dozen answers. Almost all will be no with yes buried in the middle. This is to prevent accidental accepting of an option.

    4b: To actually have you use this guide, you can clear your phone's cache. See figure 2. There are many cache clearing programs on Play, and while they may clear the cache as well as rebooting into recovery, this is merely an alternate method. Click power to accept.

    Step 5: When completed, you can navigate back, or usually after completing any action in Recovery, Reboot Now will be highlighted at the root menu. See figure 3. This is your gate back to running Android through the User Interface. Click power to accept.

    Congratulations! You have successfully entered, navigated, executed a command and rebooted all in Recovery. This is also a method to flash a ROM through a .zip file on an SD card, and a complete Factory Reset can be accomplished in this manner as well.

    PLEASE HELP!!!! I accidently pressed the ADB one what do i do!!!!

    Press and hold power. That will force a reboot. Then start over.

    I tried this on my Tab2 GT-P5110 and it gave me NO blue menu. Just automatically said Warning! then Downloading... Do not turn off target!!

    What do I do?

    And I don't recommend trying what is suggested above. I think I'm about to lose everything.

    Help!

    For the record, this worked on my Verizon Samsung Galaxy Note 2. Just went from 458mb of space to about 1.5 gigabytes of space, not to mention my phone is now blazing fast. Thanks for the help.

    Welcome to the forums.
    Glad this worked.
    Now that you have done this, it wouldn't be a bad idea to get in the habit of doing this once a month or so. Keeps the phone snappy.
    Also something to do when you get an OTA update.

    And I thought the only way to get out of Download (Odin) mode was to pull the battery - thanks!

    Lol...we all learn something.
    I tried it on my Tab because at the time I did that post I had just flashed 4.3 JB on it, and it was pretty clean anyway. I thought, what is the worst that can happen?

    I created this account just so I could say thank you!! My phone's been screwed up for a few weeks now, finally get my new one in the mail today and my old one suddenly (of course) doesn't want to turn on! I tried everything online and nothing worked. I got through about half of your instructions and it must have done some kind of magic because it turned on so I was able to get all my 4000 photos!! I can't thank you enough!

    I have an issue with an AT&T Galaxy S3. It is stuck in some unknown mode with the Samsung logo and a blue status light. It became that way after trying to do a factory reset. And has been stuck there for about a week. So I've took to the forums for some help so that I can unlock it and use on T-Mobile.

    I've done this reboot thing in the recovery mode as described here. Same problem, it doesn't work. I'm attaching a screen pic...

    Try selecting factory reset, and then reboot. Volume up and down to navigate, power to confirm.

    Timing is pretty important. Pull the battery for a few minutes, then try again. Release when you see the first Samsung logo.
