SGY GT-S5360L, 2.3.5, S5360LUHKI1, Kernel 2.6.35.7 se.infra@SEP-66 #1, GINGERBREAD.UMKJ2
Unfortunately i cannot enter recovery or download mode with the 3 buttons combo, so i dont know how to flash a custom kernel to get rooting. Anybody could help? How can i get access to recovery and download?

btw, youre a senior member. please don't be a bad example for newer member here. please put your answer in faq section next time. to root your sons device, you may use super one click from shortfuse if you can't get into recovery nor odin mode.

no...what i mean is the kernel in his son's phone. i've used the same method to root my phone too. (lol)

@clauss: tell me...where did your son got that kernel. we're developing a new kernel for SGY at this moment. that kernel could be helpfull for us.

Thanks a lot that did root my phone, now i can use Titanium backup to restore some apps and databases. I know i should not ask that here, but how could i gain access to stock recovery or download mode to flash a custom rom?

Duh...now i feel dumb... i was doing it like on my SGS i9000 where i just restart with the 3 buttons pressed. Now i turned the phone off and it works, both recovery and download. Really many thanks to you and all who answered.
