Neets: My fingers are sore ;-)
I found this video
It's exactly what I'm doing. It's the only video I've found where someone else has the Samsung logo flash on and off, and on again. Except in the video his only does it twice before getting to the recovery mode. Mine just keeps flashing on and off.
My phone is from Australia, it's an Optus one. There's no way they can stop you from getting to a recovery screen is there?
I'm sure I've exhausted all possibly sequences of pressing the 3 buttons. Maybe it needs a mans touch :P
Has anyone used the ROM Manager to get to recovery mode? I found a video on YouTube that provided 3 different methods. The ROM Manger required you to select to over clock it before you selected to boot to recovery mode. The ROM Manager seemed to be the next simplest method to get to recovery mode. Though I'd like to believe I'm just missing something since the 3 button method ought to work.
Anyone in Christchurch want to show me what I'm missing? I apologise if I've just overstepped some unwritten boundary by asking that question.
I have the same issue, there are many threads on xda on this. Sounds like some batches of phones have the three button mode disabled for some reason. Samsung canada have acknoledged the issue and say they will be releasing a fix for it (not sure when) also heard another rumor that the froyo update may fix it...
