HINT: Just try the combination with the other volume button if you enter the wrong mode (that's what I do because I cannot remember the button trick either and do trial&error every other time I need this.

Launch your software, prepare the ftf for flashing and only then do the following to enter flash mode:

  • Switch off the phone (remove battery maybe)
  • Press the Volume down button and hold it
  • (While holding) Plug in the USB cable
  • If successful, the LED should turn green

Just for the record, to enter fastboot mode:

  • Switch off the phone (remove battery maybe)
  • Press the Volume up button and hold it
  • (While holding) Plug in the USB cable
  • If successful, the LED should turn blue

If I mixed something up, please correct me.
