Well often when users try to reset their phone they have no issues. But every now and again they encounter the Android no command screen on some devices. In today’s article I want to show you how to bypass this screen for any device. When you do you will see the normal Android recovery menu that you are looking for.

Whats Android No Command?
The Android No command screen is an annoying screen that sometimes come up when you are trying to reset Android. It can be confusing as if you have ever reset any Android device it’s usually straight forward until you encounter this screen. The screen basically does not tell you a thing and says No command. In my experience it seems it just waiting for you to do the right thing to proceed which can be confusing as it does not tell you what to do. It also may be a safety screen to make sure you did not wonder into the mode and mistakenly erase your device or do something you would regret later.
