Default [Q] How to Unlock Downloader Mode Rogers Galaxy Mega SGH-I527M

Can any one walk me through the steps of unlocking my Rogers Samsung Galaxy Mega SGH-I527M. I was trying to root it and got to the step of placing it into Download Mode and it wasn't allowing me to do so. (Volume down+Home+Power) Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Merry Christmas to all.

Volume down + power.

Or activate usb debugging on your phone and type this in a terminal. There will be a popup on the phone on running the command. Click ok. Your bootloader is unlocked, right?

Code:
adb reboot bootloader

Hi tried the Volume Down and Power with no joy. I have the USB debugging selected but not sure what you mean by these instructions. Could you kindly walk me through them. Sorry I'm a nubie.

Do you have root? If yes, then try this app.

Or

Shutdown phone. Press and hold power button. When you feel the phone vibrate, press volume down. You will see a screen with a warning. Press volume up.

Yes I have root and downloaded the app. I granted the app access and continued to select boot loader. But once again it went to a black screen with no msg or icon.

Out of ideas. Check with @starmaster10. He's got the same phone. Send him a PM.

I see you have already contected him.
