Recovery mode?

I modified this update.zip file for Galaxy y pro for our Galaxy y pro duos. Copy to the root of your SD card and flash in recovery. Click Thanks if it works for you.
Thanks for the update file.
But my Samsung galaxy Y pro duos is not entering into recovery mode.
Vol Up+Home+Power combination is not working.
I have tried Vol UP/DOWN+HOme+Power also but the device
does not enter recovery mode. Till the buttons are pressed the device
boot up remains halted. Once I release power button the device boots
normally.
Pls help

How?

Working for me!:D
Great to know that. but how?
Pls tell me the exact sequence you employed.
I am pressing first Vol UP and then Home button
and while keeping these pressed I am pressing
power button. Samsung model number is flashed
for few seconds and then screen goes blank and
remains blank unless I release the power button.
Once I release the power button the phone boots
normally. Pls help.

hi

if i root with this method, and then hard reset my device then will i have to root it again or it will remain rooted after hard reset.

is there any method of unrooting?

explain me some details of the risk involved in rooting, i have purchased the phone last week and dont want to loose it so early. can i brick my phone while rooting?

is it possible to fix the bricked phone?

thank you in advance, and sorry to ask too many questions, but i am new to android.
i have flashed many symbian phones with CFW but in symbian i can always restore original FW if the CFW didnt work or something went wrong. I am learning android please help me...

If you follow any instruction to the letter, there won't be a chance of bricking
You can unroot any time by flashin a stock ROM.

@abbas

You said in your first post "I modified this update.zip file for Galaxy y pro ...". Could you please give me a link or post the original update zip for the Galaxy y pro (not your modified one for the duos), please?

thanks in advance

thanx a ton Abbas, tried all possible methods till i read ur advise and it worked in one strike, appreciate it.
Thank you once again.

For the benefit of other members who are trying a factory reset if you have forgotten the password, once you get into the recevoery mode you will be prompted for a password again. Do not worry, enter incorrect password 3-4 times before you get a warning for a factory reset by the system, click on yes and you are back to your new phone (of course if you do not have your data backed up, it will be lost) Also, please ensure to remove your sd card before the factory reset to avoid loss of data.
Hope this helps all.
