I would like to know this as well. Do the ROMs on the forum that say [I9200/i9205] work on the I527M models? I have searched within the ROM threads, but no one mentions using a I527M.

Hi was wondering if anyone was running into problems trying to get the device to boot into Download Mode with the Roger's Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 LTE SGH-I527M ? I've tried numerous times to boot it into with no success. Help??? Go to Download Mode By Pressing (Volume Down +Home +Power) is not doing it for me.

Hi.. have phone off and you only need to hold the vol-down and power button together until you feel the phone vibrate and release buttons and then a warning screen should appear and then push on the vol-up button and you should now be in the download mode.

Yep, tried this a bunch of times but no joy. It gives me only a black screen. Is this a locked boot loader or something? Sorry I'm just a newbie

Then I would do a factory reset in settings>accounts>backup and reset or if you have a recovery that can do the factory reset and see if the download mode works then as it should..the i527m does not have a locked bootloader.

When factory reset is done though you will have to put all you info back in as it is like starting a new rom again..this is all I can think to do at this time.

But wanted to ask is the the phone stock or did you attempt to install any custom recovery etc.

Well this is what I have done so far.

First, I started to try to install Super User. I moved the file to my external card and went onto trying to boot into download mode. However, it would not boot (Volume down + Home + Power) or (Volume down + Power) just went to a blank screen. Was trying to get it into download mode so I could use Odin to install TWRP.

Afterwards without any luck I went to one click root website. I was able to get root access. However, I have no access to Clockwork or TWRP. But now I am able to get at least to get access to the factory reset / wipe data and so on menu. Like you could get if you would go volume up+home+power. But no screen which one would expect with clockwork.

Any ideas would be most welcomed.

Hmm..i have the same phone and mine works well, well mine is sasktel, but i would unroot your phone with kingo root which i have uploaded here and install the program on your pc and once program is installed open it and then connect your device and then just follow the on screen info as it will ask you to allow the pc to access and stuff like that on your phone and select ok and once you get to the screen were it tells you if you are rooted there will be two selections "Remove Root" and "Root Again" and select remove root as you can always re-root it again with this program..and run the kingo root as an administrator.

And see if you can get to the download mode after taking out the root.
