very nice man! noob (like me) proof

It is actually volume down
Any way did you try it on other usb ports as well
Also can you navigate to recovery (mostly you won't)

pressing up will bring a more userfriendly message, while pressing down will get you directly to download page. NO difference at all.

Yes other USB ports, and also, why the hell did you install Dell recovery on a Samsung phone?! thats just odd
try flashing a single kernel first, preferably G3MOD 2.5 and see how that goes. installing the kernel should help you access the recovery menu, and from there everything is easy. if you successfully flash a kernel, boot. if it works, well great. if not, go to recovery, wipe EVERYTHING, dalvik, cache, system, all of 'em. after that try again to flash a ROM, something like CM7.2 is good. see if that works

actually going on here, i cant flash my gio with odin, cuz odin says
"setup connection..."
and i wait until1 hour and it didnt change! wtf...
i am stuck at setup connection, if i am not. i will flash my phone using cyanogen mod. and get out from this. the problem is, i am stuck at the setup connection. can u tell me how to fix this thing? and my phone is hardbricked like a real brick, it wont boot at all. thanks. anyway, is there any cyanogen mod fits with sch i509 or SG Y CDMA?
