This is very simple and works like a charm. I will show you two things.
How to put your phone in recovery mode and how to put your phone into download mode. This is for the i727 Skyrocket from AT&T, probably works with a lot of other phones as well. Follow my instructions exactly. THE LIST OF ROMS ARE BELOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

To put your i727 Skyrocket phone in recovery mode.
1 ) Turn your phone off. Power it off.
2 ) At the same time, press and hold volume up and down and power at the same time. Your phone will come on.
3 ) Keep holding even after the vibration.
4 ) When you see the first SAMSUNG white text, let go of the buttons.

BUT WHAT IF I’M/YOU’RE TRYING TO GET TO CLOCKWORKMOD RECOVERY?
1 ) Before the above you should have downloaded ROM Manager from the Android Market and Flashed ClcockworkMod Recovery. When it ask you what version you should select “Samsung T-Mobile GalaxyS2.” I know it says T-Mobile but select it anyways.
2 ) From Rom Manager you can select Reboot into Recovery OR you can turn your phone off and follow my previous top instructions.

Please typically do the above to install custom ROMS HERE
I recommend Sky Ice Cream Sandwich.

To put your i727 Skyrocket phone in download mode. (This is typically done to flash back to stock if you bricked your phone or are getting excessive errors)
1 ) Turn your phone off. Power it off. Set your phone down.
2 ) Take your USB cable and plug it into the computer/laptop ONLY.
3 ) This requires both hands. Pick up your phone and hold down the volume up and down at the same time then plug in the USB to your phone with the other hand.
4 ) Keep holding the volume up and down buttons. The phone will vibrate, still hand and when you see Download mode. Let go.

CONGRATS.

Now I’m assuming you’ve rooted your phone and flashed ClockWorkMode Recovery on your U.S version which is called the AT&T Samsung Galaxy S2. This should be done prior to proceeding. If you don’t know how you must do this HERE ARE INSTRUCTIONS before you proceed. I’m not responsible for anything you do. If you’ve rooted your phone and install ClockWorkMod Recovery then go to Step 1) below.

REMEMBER THESE INSTRUCTIONS ARE FOR THE U.S. Version AT&T Samsung Galaxy S2 aka i777 available at AT&T stores. If you bought your Samsung Galaxy S2 at an AT&T store then this applies to you. Okay.

1). Power Off your phone by pressing the holding power. Let it power down. Once you’ve confirmed your phone is completely off go to step 2.
2). Grip the phone with both hands on each side (there’s a reason)
3). Get ready. Now, press and HOLD the volume up and down button and the power at the same time and HOLD…..
4). KEEP HOLDING because the screen will flash and you might see a screen that says Samsung Galaxy SII GT I9100 and an yellow exclamation point like below. KEEP HOLDING…

5). The screen will flash a second time the GT I9100 screen and when it does LET GO AFTER THAT. You’re done and in Recovery mode and it should look like the below picture.

LETS RECAP

Phone was initially off, you pressed and held volume up & down & the power for two flashes of the screen and after the second flash you let go. Now you’re in Recovery mode.

Select zip file from SD card or wherever you stored it.
