How to Boot into Moto G 2015 Recovery Mode

It hasn’t even been 24 hours of Moto G 2015’s official announcement, and the device is already shipping to those who didn’t flinch a second before placing an order as soon as the phone launched on Flipkart in India.

We guess it won’t take more than a week for the Moto G 2015 to get TWRP recovery for itself. The device is easily bootloader unlockable, so development will be rapid.

In any case, if you’ve wondered how to boot Moto G 2015 into Recovery Mode, below are quick instructions to do so.

  3. Now Use Volume down key to highlight “Recovery” on the bootloader menu, and then press Volume Up key to select and boot into recovery mode.
