Full information on ADB and you can find it in the network. In this case, its use is limited to only one command.

AT operating system Android has so much of everything that when you start to figure it out, your eyes run. For example, do you know what it is? And this, by the way, is the recovery menu. There are other modes, for example, Factory Mode . What it is?

Factory Mode is translated from English as "factory mode." In fact, it is a utility embedded into the firmware for testing and configuring your smartphone. Factory Mode consists of several main points, they can be either 5 or 10, depending on the version of your device. Sometimes there is a menu of just 3 points. Here, for example, Factory Mode, consisting of 9 menu items.

You may notice that the menu of the factory mode in this case is in English, which is already good. On some smartphones this menu may be in Chinese dialect and it will be much more difficult to understand it.

Some of the menu items are:

  • Full Test, Auto Test - a full test of the smartphone, where all possible parameters are checked.
  • Item Test is a selective test. The user chooses what exactly he needs to check.
  • GPS - check the positioning of the device.
  • Clear eMMC - resetting the device to factory settings, deleting all data (similar to wipe data / factory reset Recovery Mode ).
  • Debug Test - debug mode.
  • Test Report - test alert.

In part, the Factory Mode can replace the Recovery Mode (for example, to reset the settings), but these are completely different modes. In addition, on most devices, Factory Mode only allows you to test your smartphone, but will not let you perform other actions like the same (Hard Reset).

By the way, we draw your attention to the fact that moving around the Factory Mode is done with the help of mechanical keys (Power and sound adjustment keys), although the touch control keys located below the screen are also used somewhere.

How to enable Factory Mode?
