    Im kinda confused as to what you are trying to do when you hold the home button while pressing the power button if you are just trying to turn the phone on.
    Have you just tried to press the power button by itself?

    Were you trying to get into recovery? If so, that is power, home, and volume up at the same time.

    What are you trying to accomplish?

    Just to note, with the phone completely off, you have to press and hold the combo until you see the blue text at the top. Then let go of the buttons. Continuing to hold the buttons too long might cause the phone to boot normally. This will take you into recovery.


    Now if you want to go to download mode, then press and hold the Vol down plus home plus power simultaneously.
