Fastboot Menu Language

2017-01-31, 21:52 PM

I watched the DIY videos in "Moto Agent Team" YouTube channel yesterday and wanted to test them.

So I went on to try the Fastboot menu as instructed in the video.As per the video the way to reach fastboot menu is device specific and in Moto M phone it worked with Powet button plus Volume up button combination.

But I was shocked to see that the Fastboot menu is in Chinese and I couldn't make out anything.

I want to know why the menu is in Chinese.

Can the language be changed?

If yes then no problem,but if no then another DIY video should be uploaded in the YouTube channel with instructions to deal with the Chinese menu so the Fastboot menu can be used during emergency situations if everything fails to resolve a problem.

Moto support team should look into this matter.

By the way the DIY videos are awesome.
More videos should be made to enhance knowledge of the Moto users.

I have news! There actually are English Fastboot menus but they are tricky to access. Try this:

  1. Press and hold Volume Up and Volume Down
  2. Press and hold Power until the phone vibrates, then release Power but continue to hold the Volume keys. You should get a "No command" prompt. (You can release the Volume keys now.)
  3. At the “No command” prompt, press and hold the Power button and tap Volume Up to enter the fastboot menu in English.

Let me know if you're successful.

 

And thanks for the kind words about the videos -- what other topics do you think we should cover? We're currently working on troubleshooting Bluetooth and Wifi issues.

Yeah, we were taken by surprise when we saw that too. Apologies for this -- there are just many variations in phones and we are not yet able to provide the right instructions for all of them. We're looking at our options but you are wise to stay out of that menu.

Thanks Mr.MattForumsMngr!
It worked perfectly.
I think after you finish the videos on Bluetooth and Wifi troubleshooting you should make a video addressing battery issues and healthy battery charging habits.

Agree with U. Dealing with Battery issues and Data and peripheral devices connectivity issues DIY Videos should be uploaded. I would love to see those video tutorials live.
