Yea, the title almost says it all;
After I changed the screen on my GN the volume down button is not functioning (1 of the 3 solderings is loose).
That was not much of a problem since I could just turn the volume down with the slider that appears, when pressing the volume up button.

BUT

I was too excited to try out the Optimus 4X lockscreen, so I flashed it and ended in a bootloop.
And since my volume down button is broken, I ask:

How do I get into recovery to perform a restore?

Afaik, without volume down button working you cannot enter bootloader OR download (Odin) mode. So basically, all you can do is try to fix the soldering.

Are you sure? Vol up + power button doesn't boot recovery for me.

If u are not in bootloop mode u can just using adb command to reboot into recovery. But if u are having bootloop then u have to enter download mode and flash with odin. I forgot what button is power+volume up, but any mode whether it's download mode or recovery mode are not a problem in android world

Yea, that is what I'm afraid of because I don't have any soldering equipment..

You can plug in and see if she's getting far enough in for an "adb reboot bootloader" but I'm not sure if that'll work.
Worth a shot!

Recovery is volume up + down + power. Volume up + power is Odin.

Can't you Odin push a ROM to the phone? And when you get in download ROM manager and recover your backup.

Sorry for the misspeak. Volume down +power is Odin and volume up + down + power is fastboot, which will get you to recovery.
