III.  Enter adb command window

  1. Open the adb folder located at your system drive. This was already added by the auto-installer in the step above. The location should be c:/adb.
  2. Connect your phone to your PC and be aware of your phone’s display requesting adb debugging permissions (if you haven’t previously allowed them). Be sure to allow it. If any drivers install, or you don’t see the adb debugging permission request, wait for the drivers to finish, disconnect your phone, and reconnect again.
  3. In a blank space in the c:/adb folder, hold SHIFT while right-clicking.
  4. Select “Open adb command window here”

IV.  Enter TWRP recovery

In the command window you just opened:

  1. Type “adb kill server”
  2. Type “adb start server”
  3. Type “adb reboot recovery”
  4. Bam. Profit. Done.

Some things you can do from the command window

  • Enter recovery: “adb reboot recovery”
  • Reboot the phone: “adb reboot”
  • Enter bootloader mode: “adb reboot bootloader”
  • Find devices connected via adb and status of debugging authorization: “adb devices”
