Booting an Android device into download mode is pretty simple. Atleast for those who generally keep on flashing new firmwares, updates and mods onto their devices.

Our reader Chris and couple of others asked us questions about booting their devices into download mode. I don’t know why they’re facing difficulties with it, but no problem we’re here to help you out.

Ques (Chris) : I have purchased a new Galaxy Ace device, and I want to flash CyanogenMod 10 on it. I’m wondering how I can start my device into download mode and use that tool which is required to install CM10 on my device.

Ans: Booting your device into Downloading Mode is pretty simple, just turn it off. Now, press and hold the “Volume Down + Power Button” along with the menu key on your Galaxy Ace device and wait for boot. The procedure is similar in almost all mobile phones, in other cases you just have to hold the Volume Down and the Power Button together. I have made a video specially for you, to make more clarification.
