  • Now turn off your phone, unplugged(might work plugged in)
  • Press and keep both volume keys down
  • Then press the power button while still holding down the volume keys
  • When you feel the phone vibrate or see a logo on the screen, release the power button but not the volume keys.
  • When screen goes black release the volume keys.
  • Wait a couple of seconds to boot
  • You will now see ClockworkMod TOUCH 5.5.0.4 recovery
THREAD FOR [RECOVERY] ClockworkMod TOUCH 5.5.0.4 v4.3

Just to verify again, entering into recovery for rogers phones is still only the up volume key? Just want to make sure because the two points I bolded seem contradictory so I want to be 100% sure before I do this myself

Recovery and download mode are 2 diffwrent things.
Recovery is the same for rogers and att phones
Download mode is different though between the 2 phones. Rogers phones you hold only the volume down button when plugging in the usb cable to get phone into download mode, then release the volume down key then press volume up key to see the download screen

Att phones you have to press both volume buttons down when plugging in usb cable to get into dl mode then release both volume keys, then press the volume up key to see dl mode screen

i edited the op to clarify that

You can't stickey it the mods have to lol... you say you don't plan on rooting but I would say why not? Have you weighed the advantages over disadvantages. The only disadvantage is loss of warranty but the advantages are way to many to list them all but a few are
1. Control over your device.
2. Apps like titanium backup that allow you to backup and restore apps without loss of data being able to remove or freeze those unwanted apps.
3. Root access to system files and folders.
And much much more. Also with cwm recovery you can make backups of your current rom you can restore later if something were to mess up on your phone.... just some friendly advice for you to consider and maybe even research on. If you decide to root and get stumped just pm me and I will help you....

just to confirm, you tried this on ics leaks and gb, i would like to add that to the op as a confirmation
im 99.99999% sure that this method would work on leaks and gb, just not enough to say confirmed, but i might have time tonite to test it on the leaks and gb and then be able to say it works 100%

ive talked to him b4, hes a newb(in a nice way) and just trying to understand what all the terms mean, but hes coming along.
as for warranty, its easy to go back to stock and get the warranty repair, just as long his phone can get into dl mode, that info is all in my sticky linked in my sig, oh i see your on tapatalk, cant see my sig, well you can but have to do it the webview way.
heres the link http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1652398

I agree... too many advantages over the warranty issue. for starters, freezing all the bloatware will make your battery last longer. NOT seeing them in the list of apps is awesome!! (yeah, i get irritated just scrolling thru a bunch of useless app. Titanium backup is a definite plus. Not to mention a slew of apps that are specifically for rooted device. ;)

I didn't bother to download/flash new ROM. The ICS from ATT works ok for me. If it is not broke.. I ain't changing it!
