    That means that custom recovery is not installed on your phone. If your phone came with 2.2.1 the custom recovery is on my signature. LOL If need help pm me

    If your pressing the vol power an home buttons for recovery there is an easier way.

    download anreboot from the market. select reboot recovery and give it root privileges.
