Interesting… Android manufacturers do not let average end users access recovery mode easily. Because you can do something harmful to your Android device there. Well, Xiaomi is one of the exceptions. Yes, you can boot into Redmi 1S Recovery Mode via build-in MIUI Updater application easily. Or the old school hardware button method that I prefer.
How to load Redmi 1S Recovery Mode?
- Power off Redmi 1S.
- Press and hold Volume Up + Power buttons at the same time.
- Mi Recovery Mode will be loaded.
You can factory reset and apply new update with Mi Recovery. Hmm… Not sure about install a fresh ROM. Haven’t tries that yet. I use Fastboot mode to do so.
