How to load Nexus 7 recovery mode?

How to load Google Nexus 7 recovery mode? I tried to boot into Nexus 7 stock recovery but failed. Only managed to load Nexus 7 Fastboot mode. Then it stuck at Google Logo when try to load recovery. Not a big deal because stock recovery can’t do much stuff when compare to ClockworkMod (CWM) Touch Recovery and TWRP Recovery from TeamWin Recovery Project. I managed to root Nexus and install CWM Touch Recovery with Google Nexus 7 ToolKit’s 1-click method. So how to load Nexus 7 recovery mode now?

Quick Boot (Reboot)

Well, you can use Quick Boot (Reboot) application (link) to help you. That’s the easy way. Or the hard way… Load Nexus 7 Fastboot Mode first. Connect USB cable between Nexus 7 and PC. Finally, load recovery mode.

Hopefully, Google and Asus can fix this failed to load recovery bug in bootloader soon…


  1. FYI: the new android 4.1.2 for Nexus 7 solves this boot loader issue!!!! (had to perform this trick to update, afterwards the issue was gone)
