Default [Q] Rogers locked SGH-I527M bootloader. (download mode)

Has anyone rooted the sgh-i527m from Rogers and run into trouble by not being able to boot into download mode?

This is my second Galaxy Mega i've tried to boot into download mode via holding the volume down + home + power key. Really would like to have access to TWRP or CWR to back up systems.

A friend on this form has said that Telus models have no issues booting into downloads but would be interest to know if a Rogers owner is running into the same issues. Is it possible that Rogers lock there sgh-i527m like AT&T sgh-i527

The i527m version does not have a locked bootloader and rooting, installing recovery, and installing custom roms all will work as mentioned in the posts above.

Yes. You can see it also. But did you know i527m does not have rooting system. it may be show you blank for this reason..
