Default [Q] 4.4 Rooting Using SlapMyMoto and Rebooting into Recovery Mode

Hello!

Frequent reader but not so frequent poster...

I have read through jcase's SlapMyMoto thread but am confused when during this process are we supposed to force the phone to boot into recovery and when we should just "let it boot". Throughout the thread there are random references to booting into recovery during this process but no reference to which step.

For example in Step 7 does it automatically reboot into recovery or do I need to hold the volume down button and force it?

Any insight you can provide will be appreciated....

Thanks!
