Im also having the same problem as of this last night.

cannot boot into recovery.
boots to download mode first screen but when I attempt to press volume up to accept, it reboots.
as soon as i put the battery in it cycles through the samsung logo.

tried removing memory card but didnt help.
tried keeping battery out overnight, nothing.

last thing i changed was flashing --> http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2201860. did this about 2 days ago.
not sure if that has anything to do with it?

OK so I left my phone without a battery in it for the afternoon, just got back home and gave it a try.
It booted. No idea why or what actually went wrong.

Lets hope it doesn't happen again!

OK, So the point that the phone just start booting just the moment the battery is inserted got me thinking

IS IT THE POWER SWITCH?

and indeed it's, the power switch is stuck on, although I can feel the click when I push, still, seems like something is wrong with it
so I tried to suck it out, hit the phone softly few times while the power switch is facing the ground
inserted the battery, aaaand, it didn't start booting, pressed the power softly, and horaaaaay, it's working
