I'm trying to flash a Cyanogenmod 7.1.5 on my Motorola Milstone A853. I can access the Bootloader (version 90.74) and started RSDLite 5.7 and used a base sbf file, which flashes normally.

When I reboot the device I can access recovery mode by pressing Camera, but when I access the recovery mode by pressing Volume UP and then press Camera the recovery menu does not open.

I see videos on YouTube, read a lot of tutotials, but I don't know what to do. Is there another way to do this?

  • I'm not entirely clear on what the issue is that you're seeing. Are you saying that you can't navigate the recovery menu? Typically the Power button selects things, not the camera one. These instructions also seem to indicate that you should use the keyboard's navigation pad. Or are you having trouble getting into recovery to begin with? You first seem to say that you can access it, but then you seem to say that you cannot. Jul 20 '12 at 14:38
  • Sorry I want write recovery mode, but write recovery menu. I can´t navigate because I can´t see Recovery menu, it does not show, Volume up + Camera doees not do anything on my phone.

  • but you said that you can access it by holding camera. What is different about accessing recovery mode from VolUp+Camera and just Camera? Jul 20 '12 at 15:13
  • Pressing Camera button and then press power start recovery mode, with a /!\ on the screen, but there is a step to open the menu, this step is Volume up + Camera, but menu does not show on screen.

Power on the Milestone:

Press the power button and X button and when a triangle appears, press volume up key and camera buttion.
