    Hold power button, volume up, and camera button, all three until vibration after windows phone screen, then let go of power button only, continue holding volume up and camera buttons. After next vibration let go of other two buttons, you should now have download mode screen. Hope that helps.
    Thanks fot the tip. Didn't think of holding the camera and volume up key AFTER the vibration too as that isn't how things work in Samsung's android phones.

    Don't give up easily. Honestly, it doesn't need a driver for Windows OS. MTP usb driver should be ready in Windows OS.
    Is it not working since the very first day? If not, I would remove the existing USB driver in the device manager and let it re-install again.
    I have tryed that several times.

    Can someone from Sweden check the default csc code on their Ativ S? Dial ##634# and then *#1234#. I updated with the GDR2 rom linked in this forum using BTU, just wanted to know what I should have used =)

    For me, GDR2 doesn't do much. According to Windows Phone 8 update history | Windows Phone How-to (United States) it is supposed to:
    • fix Google accounts (mine was already working)
    • improve Xbox Music (I don't use that)
    • unlock FM Radio (didn't work for me)
    • give Data Sense (didn't work for me)
    • improve VOIP (haven't been using it, but might, so this is good)
    • fix things in Internet Explorer (this is always good)
    • add default Lens saving (didn't work for me)
    • make other improvements (no idea what this did for me)


    Your mileage may vary.

    Did you do a factory reset when GDR2 was installed as most of that stuff works after a factory reset?

    Sigh... is that what people meant by "hard" reset in other forums? I thought they just meant taking out the battery.

    I'll give a factory reset a go tonight... thanks for the tip!

    Yeah, that's also known as a hard reset. Settings > about > reset your phone
