Default S3 Mini can't boot in recovery/download !

Since I installed Virginity v12 on my S3 Mini I can't boot it in Recovery or download ! I have tried with buttons, with reboot menu... even from Clockwork ! It just boots normally on system ! How do I fix it ?

Have you tried via adb commands?


adb reboot recovery

or

adb reboot download

Did you install the wrong kernel or baseband during the aroma installer perhaps? It does make a difference whether or not you have the i8190, i8190L, or i8190N, etc.
Need some help, advice, something fixed? Hit me up on Hangouts @ es0tericcha0s

Be sure you're using Vol Up + Home + Power for recovery and Vol Down + Homw + Power for download mode.

Or you can also use ADB commands, like what the guy above me said.
