as long as your phone is rooted and connected to a PC via USB, from win cmd :

adb reboot recovery for recovery mode

adb reboot download for download mode

If you the buttons are disabled to load download/recovery mode, I heard you cannot upgrade your firmware, is it true?

I had to do the same thing yesterday. Not sure why the volume buttons weren't initiating a recovery mode.
