    Angry Can't enter download or recovery mode

    Hey guys,
    I was in the process of rooting and flashing a new rom onto my captivate. I used the automated one-click Odin (download mode worked at this point) and it installed the AT&T rom onto my phone. I have the Rogers version, but from what I have read it shouldn't make a difference.

    Now I am running into trouble. I want to root and install clockworkmod so I can put a custom rom on here, but now with the AT&T rom I can't boot into recovery or download mode using the volume buttons/power button technique. I can however boot into the AT&T 2.1 rom on here just fine.

    Is there any other way to get into either of these modes? This is very frustrating.

    Edit: cleared up some stuff

    I can still use the phone (it boots into the AT&T 2.1 rom fine), I just can't do the recovery or download mode, which seems kind of strange to me..

    {Stock Rom} Odin JF6 with 3 button fix - xda-developers

    The one-click can ruin the 3 button combo on some models. Sounds like you are one of the unlucky ones. However, I think you should be recoverable.

    Root your phone.

    Turn on USB debugging and use the Android SDK to-
    adb shell
    adb reboot download

    And use ODIN to flash the files in the above link, which should return your 3 button (and stock). Avoid one-click odin as your phone is one of those that should not use it.

    Weird...that makes sense, but usually when that happens, it bootloops the phone in the process.

    OP: If you had 3-button before, you should just be able to use manual Odin and it won't break it.

    It's model 1102
    I actually got it working, I rooted using SuperOneClick since it didn't require me to ender recovery mode, then used an app called Quick Boot (on the market) to restart in download mode then recovered using Odin and the files loraque provided and everything appears to be back to normal.

    Thank you guys very much for your help!
