Today we are going to take you to learn about how to enter recovery mode for Samsung Galaxy S6. As this is a must learning lesson if you wish to play with your phone later, of course to make it more optimized and to perform better like you always dream. Without learning to enter recovery mode then you'll miss the chances to perform several actions to take your Android powered Samsung Galaxy S6 to the higher level.
As we know that each time we buy an Android based phone, we will find a stock recovery image has been planted there by the manufacturer, Samsung Galaxy S6 is no exception. And usually the manufacturers have set this feature only to perform limited actions, only official operations like applying update to official firmwares, factory reset, wipe cache partition, etc.
Of course since we know the words I want more, then those abilities offered by a stock recovery are not enough. There is no way -- as far as I know -- to flash a custom ROM, root our Android OS, creating a Nandroid backup, overclocking our device, etc. Those things are impossible to be done using a stock recovery. We need a custom ones, like CWM or TWRP to perform the so-called unofficial actions.
You can now root Samsung Galaxy S6 with SuperSu and install TWRP recovery on Galaxy S6.
And to enter to either CWM or TWRP recovery we use the same methods like entering to the stock recovery, we only change the destination place from stock recovery to custom recovery once we have installed either CWM or TWRP recovery. Therefore once you've mastered the methods of entering recovery mode on Samsung Galaxy S6, that means you can enter to CWM or TWRP recovery automatically using the same methods.
