    The recent update to ROM Manager has now caused my rooted stock SIII to not be able to boot into Recovery (from ROM Manager). It just hangs. What is the procedure to manually boot to recovery on a rooted stock SIII?

    OK, for now I managed to restore an older version of ROM Manager with TIBU, and am rebooting into Recovery now. But I would like to know any other way of doing so without using ROM Mgr.

    One way is to turn the phone off. Then press home/volume up/ then power and continue to hold all three buttons until the recovery screen comes on or...
    I use QuickBoot app from the PlayStore.

    Thanks for all the advice!

    Faster is better, from my viewpoint, so Quickboot it is. Works just fine. (Until some over-zealous bell and whistle update breaks it).

    :D
