While there is some speculation out there that tampering with your Droid X may make it explode into pieces (not quite literally), it’s always good to know how to get it into recovery mode. There hasn’t been any hacking and dev’ing for the Droid X yet, but that’s not to say there won’t be… and that’s when you’ll want to know.
The instructions are relatively simple:
1. Turn your phone off.
2. Hold down “Home” and press the “Power” button there at the top. Hold them until the Motorola logo appears
3. Release the “Power” button, but continue to hold the “Home” button until you see an exclamation mark (!)
4. Release the “Home” button and press the “Search” key once (and only once!)
And that’s it! You’ll find yourself sitting pretty in the Droid X’s recovery mode. So, go show it off to anyone who might appreciate it (and even those who won’t), but be careful there, son!
