TIPS: How to Boot Android Devices in Fastboot, Download, Bootloader or Recovery Mode


Whether you own an Android Smartphone or a tablet device, whether you are a noob, basic or advanced user, you need to be aware of certain things about your device. Booting your device into Odin/download/fastboot/ bootloader or recovery mode (stock or recovery) is  a piece of knowledge you must have.
There are hundreds of Android devices out there manufactured by different OEMs. As a result, there is no universal method for entering download/fastboot/recovery mode for all devices. The key combinations differ even for the devices made by the same manufacturer.
