[* icon_note] All steps in this guide will vary from one phone model to another. Read your device's documentation to determine the specific steps required.
[* black] To power down most phones, hold down the power button until a prompt appears. Some may have a "Power off" command in the software settings.
[* black] With the phone in an off state, hold down buttons in a combination to enter the bootloader. Google Nexus models [|have specific combinations] like holding ''Volume Down'' and ''Power'' simultaneously.
