Question Recovery Mode

I touched on this in a couple of threads in development and want to get an idea if this is an issue all Inspires. We get into Hboot/Recovery mode by holding the "volume down" and "power" for about 5 seconds. For me though, this doesn't work when the phone is completely shut down. It works great if I does this during a restart though.

Why this matters?...Let's say you flash a ROM and can't get past the white logo (happened to me many a day on the captiavte ) without being able to enter recovery mode the phone will go into an endless bootloop.

Let me know if anyone of you have any issues entering hboot/recovery from shutdown.

******SOLVED*******

Tricky or impossible . I've been trying for the past hour. What did you do to get it to work?

So if you have a bad kernel or Rom there is no way to get back? That Is quite worrisome, making me reconsider the captivate...

I'm sure you remember that on the Captivate, you can hold volume buttons and plug in USB to go straight to download mode as well. Maybe the Inspire is the same way?

EDIT: I do have CM installed, but I held Volume Down and plugged in USB and it went into Recovery.

The phone hasn't even been out a week; I'm sure all these things with kernels and radios will become easier and more clarified with time.

As far as booting into recovery goes, I'm still not sure what the deal is.

Soved. Disabling fastboot corrects things.

You mean disable fastboot on a working phone... lol. That's the potential issue I think we are concerned with. Isn't fastboot in the settings?
