Can't Boot into Recovery Mode?


Dec 4, 2013
I was looking around for different ROMs and decided to try some. Before I flash any rom I want to make use my recovery works. But for some reason I can't get recovery to boot. :(

Holding Vol down and trying to boot DOES NOTHING ? (phone doesn't even start)
Holding Vol up and booting sends me to some factory reset menu, some Chinese text.
Just starting boots my phone...

With the help of Mobileuncle Tools I can get into Recovery Mode (tried TWRP and made a backup)
However I don't feel like flashing a ROM without a working Recovery mode!

Please help!
