Hi, What is the fast boot option in the settings and what does it do and should I turn it on or off?

Hello. I have an S4 now, and I hardly ever use MoDaCo now.

Please, Do not use the HuaweiG300.com Tutorial on how to unlock your bootloader, it is better to unlock it officially with my tutorial!

My Device:

Huawei Ascend G300 (U8815) - Sold!

Samsung Galaxy S4 (Black) - The LTE Version - GT-I9505

(Ignore the links above (if there is one). It's a skimwords (advertising) link and nothing to do with me!)

The ROMS I have used:

Download Blink, a great app that controls the status LED on the G300!

Wait for 5 seconds and then click skip ad! Do not download anything in the ad window, that is not the app!

It makes the phone boot up a lot quicker.
You might need to turn it off to get into CWM instead of pulling out the battery. J

It basically puts the phone into a deep sleep keeping it in memory so it boots quick

Just reboot your phone regularly and hold Volume+ while it reboots and it will go to recovery mode, even if Fast boot option is enabled.

So it does ,
I am sure it didn't on GB. Maybe something to do with the unlocked boot loader on ICS, but only guessing .
Cheers for pointing that out to me as I never tick it now so I can get into CWM .
Will keep it ticked now though. J

Ok, Thanks! On mine it doesn't seem to make any difference to the booting, even though I am running ICS and the latest version of Vodafone's ROMs!
Here is a screenshot from about phone:

You can always use Quick Boot app to boot into recovery / shut down / go to bootloader. Works great on Stock +,even if Fast Boot is enabled. Saves wear on the power button too!

Would that make fast boot make booting faster?

EDIT:
Sorry, I mean would that app make the fast boot option in the settings menu make the booting of the phone faster than when it is off

(Sorry I just read that and realised it made no sense whatsoever!) :P

It doesn't make Fast Boot any quicker. It just gives you more reboot options (like CM9) than the standard power off or reboot.

Oh, OK, I will defiantly download that and see if it works on my phone, as I can never remember which one is the recovery mode button, volume up or down with the power button! :unsure:
