    I couldnt get my phone to go into down load mode no matter what buttons i pushed or pulled battery or not. it just wouldnt go into down load mode.

    THIS is a fix for it:

    Go to market and down load a terminal emulator. A free one is just fine.
    Open the terminal emulator and type & enter:

    su

    then type & enter:

    reboot recovery


    THATS IT !

    it will look like this:
    #su
    #reboot recovery

    "adb reboot recovery" works too, without having to type on the terminal...

    You can also use the "Reboot Button" app.

    You should always be able to get to recovery holding all 3 buttons down to boot, and let off power after the Samsung logo appears. Continue holding the volume keys in until recovery comes up.
