Default Unable to go to new recovery

I followed the instruction to get the Clockwork Mod File into my phone. It said that it passed. I powered the phone down and tried to go to my recovery. I hold down both buttons and hold the power down. I let go after the phone vibrates. The samsung name appears then goes away. Nothing else happens. I have tried downloading the mod file twice. Both times it said it passed, but I am unable to get into recovery. The phone still seems to work fine. I powered it up and made a call with it, but no recovery. Please help.

Hi jzxpw6 and welcome to the forums.

First, do you have the SGH-T989? Do you let go of the power button and keep holding the volume buttons? Were you following this guide?

I'll move this to the All Things Root forum.

Please disregard this post. Moderators, if appropriate, please delete. I don't want to be reminded of my stupidity. I found out why I could not enter recovery. I went to download the mod again and notice that I was actually downloading the mod for the Galaxy Note that I rooted last week. DOH!!!!
