I have a Sprint Galaxy S3 and have rooted it. My display is broken, so would try to use the how-to to create a headless backup.
When I try to reboot it into download mode, it seems to never come back. I believe it's waiting for a keypress on the phone, or scrolling through a menu to select the right option so it can continue to boot. Can anyone with a working display confirm this for me?
I rooted it a while ago, so don't remember what's on the screen.
When I try to reboot in recovery mode, I'm also unable to select the proper menu option to continue to boot into recovery mode.
Is it always necessary to boot into download mode first, or only if you want to download something? In other words, if I only want to reboot into recovery, can I skip the download mode boot first?
Ideas greatly appreciated!
