Update

Flash this to have working combo

[HOW-TO] Enable Three Button Combo [RECOVERY]

Since our phone doesnt have any button combination go enter the recovery we have to use workarounds

Other methods:

ADB method
If you are running on non rooted ROM

1. Download and install Android SDK
2. Connect the phone to the PC via USB
3. Press Win key+ r and type cmd
4. Type adb reboot recovery
5. Done. Phone should reboot into recovery

Terminal method
If running rooted ROM

1.Download and install
Terminal Emulator app ( https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...al.androidterm )
2. Open the app
3. Type su
4. Accept SuperUser permission
5. Type reboot recovery
6. Press enter
7. Done. Phone should reboot into recovery

App method
Requires root

1. Download and install this app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ions.quickboot
2. Open the app
3. Click recovery
4. It should reboot

This guide may be updated once the cwm comes out!

And one more way, if you have rooted your phone, you can install an app like quick boot and use it for booting into recovery.

Hi, I`m not ppero196 but how it works. Download this rar and extract on your PC. I always take the path to C:\Android\ . Then activate USB-Debugging on your device and connect your device to the PC. Open the cmd on your windows machine and type:

For download mode:

Code:
cd\
cd Android
adb reboot download
or for the recovery mode:

Code:
cd\
cd Android
adb reboot recovery
Have fun by the trying.

@ ppero196:

You write in the first post that:

Type adb reboot reccocery

Can you please fixed the command for reboot recovery? Thanks in advance.

No button combination?
Hello guys,
I can boot into recovery, pressing, up, home and power for a long time. The "Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini"-logo comes two times, and I press the three buttons all the time, until an "Android" comes. Than I am in Recovery mode. I haven't flashed or rooted my phone now, but is it not easier root and flash it via cutsom recovery mode?
Sorry for my bad English :/ If you habe some questions about my phone ask
