hi thanks for for the tutorials but with my galaxy not 4 when i try to enter into download it only brings factory mode with words in Chinese please help is there any other way i can use to enter into download mode...

You are getting Chinese because you have a custom recovery. For the factory mode, you may have pressed the wrong button, ie. you pressed "Vol Up" button instead of "Vol Down" button, and you entered the recovery mode, instead of download mode.. :-)
