There probably aren’t many reasons why you’d need to access recovery mode on your Droid X at the moment, but you never know when it might come in handy. Provided the hacking and development community can find a way to gain root access to the Droid X, this little tip could be very useful when installing new ROMs. Here is the painless process as detailed by our friends at Droid-Life:
- Turn your phone off.
- Hold down “Home” and press “Power” until the Motorola logo appears.
- Release ”Power” and continue to hold “Home” until an exclamation appears.
- Release “Home” and press the “Search” button once.
- Your phone will now enter recovery.
Exit recovery mode by navigating to “reboot system now” with the volume rocker and then hit the camera button to enter the command and boot up as normal.
