Most iTel androids give nightmare when trying to put them in recovery mode making hard-resetting or formatting most iTel android devices difficult.

Because iTel androids are SpreadTRUM androids, they have slightly different methods compare to other android devices like HTC, Sansung, Tecno amongst others which have specific key combo for booting into recovery mode from which you can perform a hard reset, factory reset, wipe user data or clean format the iTel android, itel it1406 to be specific.

But the truth is, iTel android also have specific key combo for booting into recovery mode which is mostly needed whenever we need to factory reset or hard reset the phone.
Here, I would discuss how to put your iTel 1406 android device in recovery mode for factory reset, soft format or for enabling USB Debugging on the iTel android phone even when the pattern is locked or password restricted.
