Do you want to enable buttons to be able to boot to recovery?
Well, here is how:
UPDATE
Benzonat0r found an easy way to apply three button combination.
ONLY 2MB DOWNLOAD
MIRROR
FLASH IN ODIN AS PDA
Read about it HERE Don't forget to thank him.
I also made one from service software for i8190N
Attached at the buttom is also one for i8190 which includes Official CWM 6.0.2.7.
This will make keys work and flashes cwm at once
Don't forget to set your counter to zero with Triangle Away.

This work is made by dolar4ik out of service firmware. Give him a thanks! It was first posted on 4pda.ru, a russian forum

Otherwise:

Download This rom "I8190 серв. укр.rar" from here.
Unpack .rar and open Odin.
Select the goldenxx.pit to [PIT]
CODE_I8190XXAMA2_809600_REV00_user_low_ship.tar.md 5 to [PDA]
CSC_QXE_I8190QXEAMA1_20130109.163004_REV00_user_lo w_ship.tar.md5 to [CSC]
Put your phone in download-mode and connect it to computer.
Hit [Start] when device is detected by Odin.

You will end up with a "La'Fleur" branded phone, but no worries!
Just go to download mode again and flash your choice of firmware.
The three button combo will still work!!


This is not in any way my find, or work. I just wrote a small tutorial and added cwm.
But..you can still hit thanks if it helped you.

Thank you.

All OK. Returned to official with no problems
The only issue remaining is fixing binary count

Re: [HOW-TO]Enable three button combo[recovery]
Strange. My phone had the three button combo right out of box. When I got it went home and put it right to download mode using 3 button combo and flashed generic ROM. The csc changer not working on 4.1+ ROMs without root, but my ROM is BTU so I am ok with it.

Yeah, no problems with download mode (vol-/home/power)
but what about your recovery mode? (vol+/home/power)
Many s3 mini's shipped without that function.

On top of that, Triangle Away works. We can reset the download count now.
