How to Do Factory Reset and Get Into Fastboot Menus on Droid Razr!

At some point another, you might want to do a “factory reset” on your Droid Razr. And also you might be wondering how to get into the bootloader menus.

Here’s some tips:

How to Reset your Droid Razr

You can always reset your Droid Razr by holding down the Volume Down and Power button together at any time. This will simply reset your phone. (e.g. frozen screen)

How to Get into “Bootloader/Boot Mode Selection Mode”

You can hold down Volume Down, Volume Up, and Power button together until your phone resets, then let go of Power button then hold down Power button again. This is useful for entering the bootloader mode where you can get into various system menus like fastboot, SBF flash, stock recovery, and more.

How to Boot your Phone on Low Battery with Fastboot Flash Failure

To boot your phone on low battery where you get stuck on fastboot flash failure, hold down Volume Up and Volume Down then plug in “AC” USB charger to your Droid Razr. This will give you the bootloader menu upon where you can choose “Normal Recovery” to boot. If your phone doesn’t boot here, it will at least re-charge the battery normally instead of being stuck on fastboot flash failure which will re-charge your phone “very very slowly”.

How to Do Factory Reset

Simply choose “Recovery” in bootloader menu, hit Volume Up and Volume Down at the same time to enter the stock blue-colored recovery, then choose “Factory reset”. This will erase all your personal settings/apps. This will not harm the ROM you are running on nor will it revert your phone back to stock ROM (To do that you need to restore your stock ROM or flash a stock SBF file).

    Hey I went to delete safestrap because my ICS update kept failing with it on but what I accidentally did was delete the app from the app manager before I did any sort of delete recovery like I am seeing on different forums. When I tried to reinstall the app and open it it now only force closes. How can I completely delete safestrap without having the app itself available to go into? I see files in a safestrap folder on my internal storage but am not phone savvy and don’t want to screw up any more than I already have. Please help!
