Default [Help]Recovery mode, non-combo.

Hello, fellow xda'ers. Recently my Volume up button broke. I haven't got round to fixing it. I need to access the recovery to clear cache as a lot of apps are crashing. I'm on stock, but I have no way to access the recovery. Anyone know a different way to access the recovery mode?!

ADB (Plenty of tutorials on here/Google).

P.S - Fix your button. Running a modded phone on dodgy hardware is asking for trouble (I.E you end up with a non working phone/have to do without one because any recovery method requires working hardware/buttons - happens to almost everyone at some point).
If it's important enough to cause you grief if it's lost, back it up. No excuses
Trolling for thanks is lame
Does Samsung's auto-brightness implementation crap drive you to self-harm ? A solution !

If you don't know how to recover if things go wrong, what are you doing flashing custom roms ?

Default i know lol

Go to Download Mode and flash rooted kernel
After your phone reboot open CWM app and
choose Boot to Recovery or try to download
CWM app alone may it work out i dont know

but if you are on stock you need volume buttons
to navigate in Recovery Mode
