Motorola has been fairly consistent about this. But like many things that have changed about the company since being acquired by Lenovo, the button combination to boot into fastboot mode may also be changing. Here’s how you can boot Motorola devicesinto the fastboot and recovery modes.

  • Fastboot mode
    • While the device is powered off, press and hold the Volume Down button and then the Power button. On some newer devices such as the Moto C Plus, Moto G6, etc. you may have to use Volume Up instead of Volume Down.
    • Release all the keys when you see the screen turn on. Your device should be in fastboot mode.
  • Recovery mode
    • Boot your device to fastboot mode as shown above.
    • Use the Volume Down key so as to bring the Recovery option in the fastboot menu and press Volume Up to confirm.

When the broken Android logo appears, press and hold the Power button and then press VolumeUp once to boot into recovery.
