    Hey guys I need some help here, the home button of my GS3 stopped working and now I can't enter the recovery mode by pressing Power+Home+Volume.

    There is any other way to enter the recovery mode? Through any computer program or an APP ? Im using a stock rom and I want enter the recovery to root my phone. There is any other way to root/change rom without using recovery mode?

    Thanks

    I think you can get into recovery mode using the S3 Toolkit...

    You can get to Safe Mode by continually tapping the MENU button while it's booting up.

    To the left of the HOME button. The one you can't see until pressed.
