    wait until the lil android dude appears mate.
    it is volume down for recovery btw.

    so what happened when i did it with volume up and it warned me of the risks of installing a custom o/s but still gave me the option although the phone isnt rooted (its unlocked/sim-free though)
    is this normal???

    I've never seen so much confusion to get a phone into recovery. Both are started with the phone off.

    Recovery-volume up, power and home. As soon as you see the Samsung on your screen release all 3 buttons. If you release too early it will boot normally. If you release too late it will boot normally.

    Download mode-volume down, power and home. Hold all until you get a warning, then press volume up.

    Everyone got it now?

    I just need to hold vol down and home o mine. Also I can keep them held down until the cwm screen pops up.

    I am guessing it depends on the model. I know what works on the us models. I am guessing the international models are different. Lol....

    Since we have everyone using this forum, perhaps questions like this should be posted in device specific forums instead of general.

    I have an A13 tablet and it will not boot into recovery with any combination of vol+,vol-, power etc. The only way to reboot it into recovery is via the settings screen and this means that if you can't switch on in the first place it is impossible!

    Bill,
    I'm not familiar with that tablet.
    - who makes it
    - what version of Android is it running
    - is A13 the actual model
    - how many buttons does it have
    - have you read the manual
    What do you need to get into Recovery mode for anyway?

    Every manufacturer has it's own approach to booting into recovery. Often, different devices from the same manufacturer will have different methods. (For example, my Samsung tablet doesn't have a home button, and uses a different approach than the Vol Up / Home / Power combination the S3 uses. )

    I would suggest searching Google with the exact manufacturer and model name or number, and see if you can find the information that way.
