    S3 i9300 Can't Get Into Download Mode

    I'm finally taking the plunge into Android territory after getting an S3 import.

    The unit is half in a language I dont understand, so figured the best thing to do would be reload it with english firmware.

    The problem I'm having is that when I hold down the vol down, home and power button, the phone boots into "Android Recovery 3e" instead of download mode. I have tried playing around with that to flash the firmware but havent had any luck, and cant find much on google about how its done. I found holding onto vol up, home and power takes me to a factory menu.

    I've also tried connecting Odin and Kies, neither see the device as connected. I've gone into device manager and confirmed theres no driver issues.

    Has anyone had experience with this and can help me either get to download mode or use this recovery program to reflash the droid?

    Hello Draven - welcome to the forum!

    You might do better from an advice standpoint to post your questions over on our sister forum Samsung Galaxy S3 Forum as that forum is exclusively Galaxy S3.
