Hi, I'm trying to root my phone and I can't get into recovery mode. I've tried download mode too just to see if it works and it doesn't.

I know I have to turn the phone off and press and hold VolUP+Home+Power then release when I see the first boot screen that says SAMSUNG GALAXY S GT-I9000

I have tried many methods of trying to get into recovery mode
-holding the 3 buttons the entire time (this just resets the phone and brings back to the I9000 screen)
-just letting go of the power (boots into the phones OS)
-letting the phone reset once by holding all 3 buttons down then releasing only the power (boots into OS)
-letting all 3 buttons go (boots into OS)


The reason I'm trying to get into recovery mode is a pattern lock on the phone which I don't know.

Also phone cannot be detected by computer at all, propably because there is a mass storage option selected in connectivity instead of Samsung Kies, and of course I cannot change it because of pattern lock...

I don't know any firmware version or baseband because of pattern lock.

I watched few youtube movies already, doing same thing as ppl there, but it didnt worked for me.

After hours of googling now I know the problem causing the 3 button disabled on some phones.

To fix it i have to install the Download/Recovery Mode fix (3 Button Disabled SPL fix)

But to install it i have to select usb debugging in phone settings which I can't do because of pattern lock.

Any ideas?

If it is just a matter of you forgetting your pattern, and you have your google account setup on the device you can use the password from that to unlock the phone, that's what I did after entering my pin wrong too many times.

There is one method,I'll provide the video link. USB JIG
It involves hacking a USB Cable.

+1 for the USB jig. If you don't fancy messing with a cable yourself, they can be had for a couple of quid on eBay.

Here, after running Android Data Recovery, you can enter the recovery mode.
1 Connect your Android phone and enable USB debugging
2 Analyze your Android phone
After the USB debugging, reconnect your phone if you are asked to disconnect it during the setting.Here you need to bear in mind that your phone's battery is more than 20% charged, and then you can click "Start" to let the program analyze your Android phone.
3 Scan your Android
4 Preview and recover from Android

Seems like a good answer. :)
