Recovery Mode is a recovery menu or a special mode that allows you to perform various actions on your phone. For example, through it, you can reset the device to factory settings or perform firmware installation. What’s interesting is that the control in the pre-installed “recovery” menu is done only with mechanical buttons. The volume keys are used to scroll through the options, and the power button is used to confirm the action.
There is also custom, that is, unofficial recovery menus. They can already be controlled by tapping on the screen. The most famous of them are TWRP and CWM. To put your Xiaomi phone into recovery mode, you need to perform the following actions:
- Turn off the phone.
- Simultaneously press the volume up key and the power button.
- After the vibration, release the power button, but continue to hold the volume up key.
- After the restore menu appears, release the volume key.
As for exiting the recovery menu, you need to select the “Reboot” option and confirm the reboot of the device.
