I have the same bug. And I mean that when I try to enter in the recovery mode, nothing happens.
If you have the same error , please continue reading this , if not, do everything else.
To force the phone to boot into recovery, you should be able to enter , first, in the download mode.
Please flash before , clockworkmod recovery. (I recomend 18.104.22.168)
Before you have flashed cwm, go to download mode again.
At the first screen, you will see an warning message. Now is the time to press some keys... see bellow (TIP: please do not skip the message with the volume up key ! )
Press the home
volume down +
volume up (home+down+up)
Note: You need
to press the up+down
, and hold it at the same time
with the phone vibration.
Release the keys on the samsung logo screen. If you see under the ,,samsung galaxy mini 2,, an logo with clockworkmod. The problem is solved.
If you see the RAMDUMP mode, instead the recovery, go there to see my solution > http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2707219
> If you still see an black screen , instead samsung logo, please repeat all steps. It worked
for me 100%
after some long time.
