Android Recovery

Definition - What does Android Recovery mean?

Android recovery refers to the processes and measures performed to restore standard operations on an Android operating system-based phone.

It is done to restore functionality in the aftermath of a problem that caused the Android operating system to perform unexpectedly or provide no service at all.

Techopedia explains Android Recovery

Android recovery is generally done using Android recovery mode, which is a native device recovery provided by Android. By using a combination of keys, recovery mode is displayed on the Android device. The user can select any of the available options to restore or edit the device.

After-market Android recovery solutions provide the ability to create a backup of an Android device and data on external storage. This backup can be restored later by transferring data to the phone using a USB cable.

Android recovery might also be performed by simply removing faulty and buggy apps or viruses from the device.
