Hi Forum

I have a 4 year old Samsung Galaxy S Plus. I have a problem with the phone physically - meaning that the volume buttons are not working. I want to install ClockWorkMod Recovery Touch but cannot flash it as I cannot move in my recovery down and up. Is there anyway that I can install ClockWorkMod Recovery without flashing it ? Or better yet... how can I root this phone without flashing ? I have a zip file and that zip file once flashed with give me root access, but once again cannot do it as the volume keys are not working on my sammie. Any ideas ??

You can try rooting with this app, just install and in one click you will have root http://forum.xda-developers.com/apps...-root-t2130276 and if that doesn't work try http://www.oneclickroot.com/phone/sa...galaxy-s-plus/ regarding getting into recovery mode you could install a rom that would boot into recovery mode from the phones operating system, all CyanogenMod roms do this ( probably most custom roms do) if you hold power button you get the power menu options then just choose to boot to recovery

EDIT: actually if you're not already on a custom rom then you can't use the power menu options, ok so try rooting then installing an app that would let you boot to recovery. Something like this https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...er+menu+widget

Thanks for info... except that I can boot into recovery, except that I cannot select anything because my volume buttons don't work, so I cannot move up or down in order to select an option. I need a TOUCH RECOVERY in order to select any option not using my volume buttons. I have this in my HTC Sensation using Touch Clockworkmod Recovery and I am not using any of my volume buttons. Is there any way I can get that touch recovery and install it without flashing it ?

You can use the ROM Manager app instead of going to recovery. You can do everything that's in the recovery from the app.
