I cannot for the life in me get in to recovery mode. I have tried Vol up & power & Vol Down & power. Nothing

How do I get in to recovery Mode to clear cache?

I have got in with cable & Vol up & power.

I have wiped cache twice & rebooted.

For the life of me I cannot get into recovery to clear the cache. I have the BRI N9860. I am using my AKG headphones. They are plugged in. I keep holding the volume up button then hold the power button. When are you supposed to release either of them? I have tried keeping hold of both, or releasing the power button at the first logo screen and all other options I can think of. After maybe 10 or 15 seconds there is a strong vibration and it then goes on to start normally, although it seems to start in flight mode for some reason and Nova is no longer my default launcher. What the h**l am I doing wrong?

Thanks. Yes I just got it to work. As you say, I had to connect the phone to my computer before doing the buttons. Connecting my AKG earphones did not work, as others have said it should. Maybe there's something wrong with them but they work as earphones so I don't know. I hope this may help someone else.

Lol is this why our update is late? Hahaha

Actually looks like in terms of security patch we were ahead of other models since they prio HK devices on that. I was actually thinking the ui3 along with the Feb sec. patch was an update on coincidence. Or maybe it was the plan all along who knows 🙃
