Question [Q] Grand 2 Duos SM-G7106 does not enter download mode

Hello,

A customer gave a Grand 2 (SM-G7106) for service, to have a custom rom & recovery installed.

I've been trying to use the method that's available in all the forums (put the phone to download mode, connect it to odin & etc...).

But the phone does not go into download mode in the first place for some reason.

Rather, when I keep holding Vol Down + Home + Power (or Vol Down + Power only) , a screen flashes to say 'Factory mode' for like 2 secs & then, I get these options

Vol Down + Home + Power

So, I tried, Vol Up + Power & I get these options

Vol Up + Power

Please give me a solution to this.

Thanking you all in advance,

Not sure, it only came for service.

How do I distinguish between original & duplicate?

Even then, is there any solution to this problem though?
