Hi there

Just got my moto G yesterday and have put it its box last night as my sim is not activated yet but I have put it the wrong way in the box and somehow the side of the box has pushed the volume down button of the phone (I had switched the phone off ) and my phone went into fastboot mode. I myself went into panic mode :O and started to look on the web for help but after 3 or 4 minutest the fastboot screen disappeared and I was able to switch on my phone normally. Now my question is : Have I damaged the phone in any kind of form by going into that fastboot mode ? Any help appreciated :)

You haven't damaged anything if you haven't connected it to the computer, install adb drivers on your computer, install android sdk, and typed the appropriate commands to flash or erase something to the phone's partition.

Not all phones use fastboot, but I think Google is pushing more manufacturers to follow the standard so most of them do now.

Hey there,

I think I am not as lucky as the guy who posted this thread.
My Mi 2 Prime is right now stuck in Fastboot mode and won't come out of it. I haven't pressed any buttons yet. Can you help me revive it back to its normal state without changing/updating anything?

PS: haven't connected it to any computer or haven't done anything silly yet.
