How to Boot Galaxy F42 5G into Recovery Mode

What is Recovery Mode?

Samsung Galaxy F42 5G comes with standard recovery installed. This program is very important for Android and all phones have it. It is independent of the firmware containing Android and all of its applications. This is intentional because recovery is an exit point in case you lock your phone and it gets stuck in a boot loop. Phone stuck in download loop won’t boot. It shows loading animation but never loads Android. This could have happened as a result of damaged firmware or incorrect code change.

There are a number of important things you can do with standard recovery, but even more with custom recovery like TWRP. You can flash custom files, ROMs and mods.

There are two ways to enter Recovery Mode on your Galaxy F42 5G. The first way is to use the physical buttons of the phone and the second is using ADB commands. Obviously, the first method is simpler and faster, but ADB commands are needed if the hardware buttons do not work correctly.

1. Physical buttons

It’s pretty straightforward. You need to turn off the phone, press the desired buttons, and the phone will immediately go into recovery mode.

  1. Press and hold the power button. Click on Disable. The phone will turn off.
  2. Make sure the phone is completely turned off. Now press and hold the volume up and power keysat the same time.
  3. Release the buttons when you see the Samsung boot animation logo.
  4. The phone will go into recovery mode in just a few seconds.

2. Recovery via ADB

If the first method of pressing the volume up and power keys doesn’t work, then the ADB commands will do the job for you. If for some reason the buttons are broken or the phone does not enter recovery mode, even if you do the correct combination, use the ADB commands.

Before you can run commands, you must have the appropriate ADB and USB drivers for your Galaxy F42 5G.
