If you skipped the last flagship from the South Korean tech giant, you might find yourself getting confused by all those buttons on the edges and lack of a Home button. Don’t worry, in a simple step you can get into Galaxy S9 Recovery Mode. Here’s how:
- Press and hold the power button to turn off your Galaxy S9 or S9+.
- After turning your phone off, press and hold Bixby button (right below the volume keys), Volume Up, and Power button at the same time.
- You will see a blue screen (it’s not of death!), which will say “installing system update” followed by “No command.”
- After about 20 to 30 seconds, your Samsung Galaxy S9 or S9+ will show you the Recovery menu.
Once in the Galaxy S9 Recovery Mode, you can wipe data and cache, perform the ever important operation of factory resetting, and apply updates from the SD card manually. As a reminder, you have to use volume keys for navigation and power button for selecting an option once inside the Recovery Mode.
