This is very simple and works like a charm. I will show you two things.
How to put your phone in recovery mode and how to put your phone into download mode. This is for the i727 Skyrocket from AT&T, probably works with a lot of other phones as well. Follow my instructions exactly.

To put your i727 Skyrocket phone in recovery mode.
1 ) Turn your phone off. Power it off.
2 ) At the same time, press and hold volume up and down and power at the same time. Your phone will come on.
3 ) Keep holding even after the vibration.
4 ) When you see the first SAMSUNG white text, let go of the buttons.

BUT WHAT IF I’M/YOU’RE TRYING TO GET TO CLOCKWORKMOD RECOVERY?
1 ) Before the above you should have downloaded ROM Manager from the Android Market and Flashed ClcockworkMod REcovery. When it ask you what version you should select “Samsung T-Mobile GalaxyS2.” I know it says T-Mobile but select it anyways.
2 ) From Rom Manager you can select Reboot into Recovery OR you can turn your phone off and follow my previous top instructions.

———————

To put your i727 Skyrocket phone in download mode. (This is typically done to flash back to stock if you bricked your phone or are getting excessive errors)
1 ) Turn your phone off. Power it off. Set your phone down.
2 ) Take your USB cable and plug it into the computer/laptop ONLY.
3 ) This requires both hands. Pick up your phone and hold down the volume up and down at the same time then plug in the USB to your phone with the other hand.
4 ) Keep holding the volume up and down buttons. The phone will vibrate, still hand and when you see Download mode. Let go.

CONGRATS.

BUT WHAT IF I/YOU WANTS TO FLASH THE STOCK AT&T ROM BECAUSE OUR PHONE IS MESSED UP.

5 ) Download the stock from HERE
AT&T user select the Download Stock TAR for SGH-I727
Rogers user select the Download Stock TAR for SGH-I727R.

6 ) Extracted the above TAR file.
7 ) Open Odin 1.85, run Odin3+v1.85.exe or Odin.
8 ) Odin will recognize your phone if there’s a yellow box.
9 ) In Odin select PDA and find the TAR file you downloaded.
10 ) Make sure Re-Partition is UNCHECKED. It should be by default.
11 ) Click Start
12 ) CONGRATS your phone will be back to stock like you bought it from the store.

Hi,

Mine is not working. I updated to touch CMW and no power combo. I never had this issue with Captivate.

Any idea aside from install other CMW?

Is your phone a Samsung Galaxy S2 LTE Skyrocket SGH-I727 ??

No. You are in the incorrect forum. If you use anything from here is will not work and anything you flash may brick your phone. You need to find the proper info for your phone, which is not here. Try google or the search feature.

You lose cwm. The backups will still be there. But you'll need to put cwm back on to use them.
