    I've looked up various video tutorial and it's pretty simple but my phone has different options so I have decided to ask you lot which one it is.

    Touch&LCM Test
    Auto Test
    Manual Test
    Item Test
    Debug Test
    Clear eMMC
    Version
    Reboot

    Clear eMMC? Nay. Version? Nay. Reboot? Definitely nay. Not sure what the 'Test' options are all about.

    Thanks.

    I am assuming you're within the Recovery correct? Also, what Model Phone are you using.

    Yes, and I'm using a Geotel Note 4G. It's a great phone but can't find that option.

    Are you rooted?

    Your recovery menu is relatively weird, is that what appears when you try "adb reboot recovery" (using adb of course).

    I just press Volume Down + Power and this shows up. I'd like to root it but don't want to take any chances.

    If you can't get the option through recovery mode, the only other options I can think of involves root or at the very least an unlocked bootloader and a custom recovery but even now safetynet seems to be getting triggered by an unlocked bootloader.

    That said, why do you want to clear the cache?

    I'll enter that Recovery Mode and see what it has...

    Ah, there it is. :)

    Reboot system now
    Reboot to bootloader
    Apply update from ADB
    Apply update from SD card
    Wipe data/factory reset
    Wipe cache partition
    Backup user data
    Restore integrity check
    Mount/system
    View recovery logs
    Power off

    Thanks for your help.

    What chances? Rooting either works or it doesn't, and the process can't result in any sort of brick (unless you're flashing/sideloading something, but that's rare these days). Flashing a custom recovery and ROM is what's "risky". It's incredibly hard to ruin a phone past repair though.
