[Galaxy S]Cannot boot to recovery mode?
For some reason I cannot boot into recovery mode on my SGS I9000 using the power up + home + power button keys. My device is rooted and flashed with a custom rom but I thought I had bricked it as it was looping for a while so I tried to get into recovery mode but the phone just keep restarting itself until I took my finger off the power button and then it would just boot normally.
I left the phone to loop and eventually it booted up so I used ROM Manager to boot my device into recovery mode and restore my backed up ROM that was working fine. All is great now but I still cannot boot into recovery mode using the shortcut keys - I have to actually boot into the phone and use software to get into recovery mode?
Anyone else experience this and could it be because of the custom ROM installed?
Also I read there is a way to get into recovery mode by plugging my device into the computer - does anyone have a guide on how to do this please?
Thankyou for any help - sorry it is a bit of a long post.
