Default [Q] Manually Boot into Bootloader

Is there a way to manually boot into bootloader? I tried holding Vol- and Power but that just boots me into OS. Holding Vol+ and Power does this weird bootloop thing like three times and then boots into OS.

My philosophy is that if your "contribution" to the community has a giant DONATE button in the center of the page? It isn't worth the download.

I get the same problem. Does anyone else know why our phones do not reboot into bootloader with vol+power?

It was checked. I unchecked it. I'm sure the next time I attempt to do it, I will be able to. Thanks.
