Default [Q] Can't get into recovery mode after flashing. (SlimSaber 4.4.2 - Galaxy S 4G)

I just flashed this rom: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2616367 after flashing for a first time I reboot and take the battery out to try to get into recovery for a second time as it told me to do in the instructions and now when I try it goes through the Samsung boot it goes up to the roms custom boot logo and freezes there.

You likely need go keep trying. Timing is important as is making sure you are firmly pushing the correct button combo to access recovery.

Your last resort is to use one of the Heimdall One-Click packages available.

Can you point me to where I can download the drivers because when I connect my phone to my PC in download mode it doesn't recognize it.

I mention several troubleshoot methods in the guide linked in my signature to help with your computer/Heimdall recognizing your phone. Did you try all of them?
