Hello. New to this forum. I have a quick question: Is there any special magic to getting the Blaze into Download mode. I've done a search and found several methods for various other devices. None of them, including the one described at the start of this thread, have worked for me. I get either a gray battery icon or some sort of warning message in yellow letters that doesn't last long enough for me to read more than the words "..NOC block".
That is, I've tried holding the various buttons before and after connecting the USB cable to the Blaze; holding just the UP, just the DOWN, etc. I'm wondering if the Blaze requires some special sleight of hand.
My purpose in rooting, for what it's worth, is to be able to run SetCPU to improve battery performance.
