    Turn around...
    I flashed Virus' Rom Kingdom REVOlution with sense 3.0 earlier today and just a while ago, I decided to do a nandroid backup of it. So I shut my phone down, waited about a minute, pressed down on the power button & vol. down and, nothing. The screen still stayed black, I attempted it again and it simply powered back on and not into recovery! I tried 2 more times and the same thing, I couldn't manually reboot into recovery.

    Thankfully, I installed Quickboot and was able to get to recovery and make a nandroid. My question is this: is that normal for this rom not to want to reboot into recovery? Has anyone here in forumsland had this happen to them?

    BTW, I restored a nandroid from a previous save, flashed it and, after it was fully installed, I shut it down and manually rebooted into recovery without any issue. :thinking:

    if you hold down the power button(while powered) on it brings up the quick menu. If you select reboot it goves you the option to boot straight into recovery.

    @gdrobe, so are you saying there's a toggle feature that I have to turn "on" in order to reboot into recovery manually?

    Actually you have to turn off fastboot. Otherwise, it will not completely restart your phone. It puts it into a hibernation state rather than a full off like in previous versions. By turning off the fastboot, you make the phone shut off all the way when you power it doen.
