Thread: Cant get into recovery mode manually - Hardware or Software issue?

    Cant get into recovery mode manually - Hardware or Software issue?

    Im not hugely into rooting etc, but I did want to install the lag fix from the market.

    I discovered that I couldn't get into recovery mode manually (by holding buttons), and ended up using the ADK tools to get round this.

    I know that there appears to be a fair number of Galaxys that have this issue, and Im wondering does anyone know if it's a hardware issue, or will Samsung be able to release a fix for it?

    To me it defeats the object of having a recovery mode if it cant be accessed on power up, because that's really when it would need to be used.

    Anyone any clues?

    I just posted in this thread: http://samsunggalaxysforums.com/show...-Recovery-mode

    I think it really is a bad thing that Samsung have started to disable these modes. As of right now, I don't think anyone knows what will happen. I heard that Samsung disabled it because people were mis-using it (I assume they mean installing non-official firmware...) but in a post over at XDA (check the link above) someone claims that Samsung is looking into a fix...
