Whether you have an iPhone or Android device, you will find it comes automatically with recovery mode — a separate partition from your standard operating system that you can boot to when you want to recover your device. With Android, third-party developers have created what we know as custom recoveries. There are two main custom recoveries supported today — CyanogenMod Recovery and TWRP Recovery — which can be booted to give users more advanced options from the menu. These custom recoveries are usually installed by geeks who are looking to customize a device and get more out of it. Common ways to customize a device include installing a custom recovery, rooting the device, installing a custom ROM, installing Xposed framework or installing a custom kernel. You might know some of these things as aftermarket firmware.
Your Huawei Mate 7 smartphone can always boot to the recovery partition that is installed. For example, those who have the stock recovery installed can boot to the stock recovery and those who have a custom recovery can boot to the custom version. You may only have one recovery running at any one time and the amount of times you can switch back between recoveries is infinite.
These are the instructions to enter recovery mode on Huawei Mate 7 devices. The guide will work for Huawei mate 7’s with a stock recovery or custom recovery.
