However, the only way I can access any recovery is via rom manager which takes me to the first screen with the blue print. I can't get any further than that.
When I did try the 3 button method, I got to the galaxy s splash screen, continued holding all three buttons down as per guidlines in a different thread, it kept going back into the splash screen without going into recovery, I held on for several cycles and then gave up and let go of the power and it just booted normally.
Am I right in thinking some of the galaxy's were shipped without the ability to access recovery via the 3 button method?
What I need to know is, if I can only access recovery via either adb or rom manager, what do I do if I do something and my phone won't boot? This would mean my phone would be bricked right?
I don't think there would be any point taking it back to the store as they only had one left which is the one I now have, plus, they know nothing about booting into recovery there, all they know is how to operate the phones out of the box.
Any suggestions as to what I can do or am I stuck with the risk of ending up with a bricked phone if and when it decides not to power up at all?
Thanks in advance.
