The newest addition to the Samsung flagships has created quite a buzz in the smartphone industry.

Just days after its launch and we already have the rooting binary and a custom recovery in hand, with a plethora of tweaks waiting to make a permanent abode onto our device. But to carry some of these tweaks, you will have to boot your Galaxy S23/Plus/Ultra to Recovery Mode. And in this guide, we will show you two different methods through which you could do the same. Follow along.
What’s the Need for Recovery Mode?
The Recovery Mode is one such mode that is used by both the general audiences and tech enthusiasts alike. In this regard, there exist two different types of recovery- stock and recovery. The stock recovery is the one that comes preinstalled with the device and if you want to remain in the stock ecosystem, then this is the only recovery that you would want to interact with throughout the time you use this device. In this regard, here are some of the most commonly sued functionalities that you could carry out via stock recovery:
- Manually Install firmware via ADB Sideload
- Factory Reset your device
- Wipe the Cache partition
- Boot to Download Mode [Bootloader Mode]
On the other hand, for the tech enthusiast, the stock recovery might not be able to checkmark all their prerequisite, and hence they usually prefer to opt for a custom recovery like TWRP. This will then allow them to:
- Flash ZIP and IMG Files such as Custom ROMs and Magisk for root
- Take a backup of all the device partitions via Nandroid Backup
- Wipe Various Device Partitions
- Use Advanced Download Modes
Irrespective of the recovery you currently have, the steps to boot your Galaxy S23/Plus/Ultra to Recovery Mode stand the same. So without further ado, let’s check out the various methods to carry out this task.
