you have to switch the phone off.. take out the battery for 5 seconds (min).. then.. this is the bit you need three hands for... you need to hold the back button whilst plugging in the USB cable.. continue to hold the back button until the software tells you to let go..

There is only only method for the X10a/i/mini/mini pro/1.6/2.1/2.2 into flashmode, as Mr Iceman has already explained, if it doesn't work for you you're doing something wrong or your phone is broke. To save having to use 3 hands, plug the lead into the phone first, then attaching it to the PC is a much simpler task.
