ADB and Fastboot Commands

As mentioned above this command can help you to directly jump on the bootloader functionality of your device without much effort. So, even if you have a broken mobile device you can at least bootload your device without even touching the device screen.

2) ADB Reboot Recovery

This command is mostly for app developers. They can use this command to install the latest android mobile updates that are not released yet.
