Right now, there’s no telling how long it will be if the hacking community (as good as you are, you amazing folks) gets into the innards of our beloved Droid X, or if they will at all, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be able to boot into recovery anyway, right? Of course not! So, consider this your Public Service Announcement for today. And for the record, doing the steps below won’t brick your phone, so don’t freak out.
How to do it
1. Turn your phone off.
2. Hold down “Home” and press the “Power” button there at the top. Hold them until the Motorola logo appears
3. Release the “Power” button, but continue to hold the “Home” button until you see an exclamation mark (!)
4. Release the “Home” button and press the “Search” key once (and only once!)
5. And BAM! you’ve just booted yourself into recovery
Like we said, there’s no real reason for this right now. And by that, we mean for the general public. But hey, it can get us closer to our dreams of being able to have all the fun we want with our beastly devices, thanks to root access. So . . . How about it?[via Droid-Life]
