I always want to try new roms in my HTC Desire. For that, I frequently need to go to Recovery mode. Following is the procedure to boot into Recovery Mode.
- Turn your desire off
- Hold the volume down and power button in to boot into hboot
- Use the volume button to navigate to boot recovery and select it by pressing the trackpad button
If you followed the steps above correctly you should now be on a screen called ClockworkMod recovery.
