If you have a Samsung smartphone using Android 10 or 11, you may have noticed it will not boot into recovery mode the way older phones did.
This can include phones such as the Galaxy S10, S20, S21, A50, A70, and more.
The old method was to hold the Bixby button, volume up, and power button all at the same time.
Once the Samsung logo appeared, the power button was released while the other buttons held, and it would go into recovery mode.
The procedure has changed slightly as now a USB-C cable needs to be plugged in.
Not all USB-C cables work; the USB-C cables, such as headphones working very well.
Some users report that connecting the data cable USB to a PC also works well.
If the phone does not go into recovery mode, try another USB Type-C cable.

- Power off the smartphone.
- Plug in a USB-C cable such as headphones into the smartphone USB-C port.

Setting a new Samsung Android 10 or 11 Smartphone into recovery mode has changed slightly as now a USB-C cable needs to be plugged in.

Other users report that plugging in the Data cable from the phone to a computer USB port also works.
