Default [Q] myTouch 4g recovery mode not working!

First question: Not sure if it's the phone or the software but when I shutdown my phone and try to turn it back on by holding the volume button and the power button, it doesn't work. But as soon as release the power button, it decides to turn on. Can someone help me with this?

Second question: Does my phone need to be rooted to get Android 4.1.1?

NOTE* Currently on Android 2.3

1) Keep trying, you shouldn't have to release a button to turn it on. Are you holding the right buttons? Its down+power
2)Yes

Yeah, I watched a video on it and I'm doing it exactly like them and it's not working.

First Volume down, then the power button, it should be on within 3 seconds.
Do you have ADB enabled? Plug your phone into your computer, if your computer recognizes it via ADB, come back

I would try pushing recovery img through adb. See if that solves the problem.
