12.My phone cannot enter download mode or recovery mode using the buttons combos. What can I do?
Some batches in various countries seem to not have this feature. Whether this is an intentional change made by Samsung or simply a software error is not completely clear. While some Samsung offices see it as a softwarebug and are claiming that they will release a software fix, others do not acknowledge the issue and so not replace phones without the fuction. If you are one of the unfortunate group who cannot use the button combos (VolumeUp+Home+Power for recovery and VolumeDown+Home+Power for download mode), you can use the commands "adb reboot recovery" and "adb reboot download" to get into the respective modes (See Post#3 for a step-by-step tutorial on using ADB). However, if you cannot enter download mode by using the button combo, you will NOT be able to recover from a failed flash! Since this is a rather common occurance, I strongly advise you NOT to flash your phone using the adb reboot download command!
