The Gionee S6 comes with some outstanding features like a 13 megapixel primary shooter, 32 GB’s worth of internal storage space, Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box and the company’s Amigo 3.1 UI on top. But what if you are having trouble with that same Android 5.1 software update, or the custom Amigo UI isn’t working well? For all those times, you need to enter the recovery mode — a separate bootable partition that is there for you to recover your Gionee device.

These are the guidelines to boot recovery mode on the Gionee S6 smartphone using an app and the hardware buttons from the device:

Files You Need

  • You can download the Quick Boot application for your Gionee S6 smartphone from the Google Play Store and install it on your device if you have root access.
  • Those of you S6 owners who do not have root access will need to get access to the recovery mode using the hardware keys directly from the device and the Android operating system.

Entering Recovery Mode on the Gionee S6

  1. Long-press your S6’s Power button until you can see the device has shut down completely. At most, this process takes 10 seconds for some devices.
  2. Boot the Gionee S6 smartphone holding the Power and the Volume Up buttons at the same time.
  3. Wait until you see the Android logo on the S6’s display before you let go of the two buttons.
  4. Quickly hold down the Power button by itself for a short time and you will see the Recovery Mode menu.
  5. Navigate through your Recovery Mode menu using the Volume Up and Volume Down buttons.
  6. Highlight the option you want and then press the Power button to confirm the action.

In conclusion, that’s how you enter the recovery mode on your Gionee S6 smartphone. As we said earlier, people who have rooted their Gionee S6 device can skip using the hardware key combination and just install the Quick Boot app from the Google Play Store if they prefer.
