Default the phone wont boot to recovery

as said in title
the phone will not boot in recovery mode
i want to do a factory reset and can't access recovery mode
i've tried vol up + home + power...hold it till 2nd samsung galaxy ace logo appears, then release it
tried the same button till 1st logo disappears
same buttons till 1st logo appears
same buttons till 2nd logo disappears
i pretty much tried any combination possible
releasing power button and keep on holding vol up and home,...
like everything
it does however boot in download mode
but if i press continue it just hangs on not turn off target!! and never does anything
this is not my phone so it's my first time using it, my younger bro owns it so i'm a complete noob at this

and yes, i'm sure it's ace 5830i and not 5830 and jut in case i tried holdinh only power button and home button and nothing happens
doesn't even show the 2nd samsung galaxy ace screen, just boots after 1st one

thanks for help!
