I have a Galaxy SIII (GT-i9300) and I'm following the instructions for installing CyanogenMod on it here.

However, when following step 4 of the first part:

  1. Boot the Galaxy S III (International) into download mode. Hold Home, Volume Down & Power. Accept the disclaimer on the device. Then, insert the USB cable into the device

I get stuck in the (in)famous Downloading... Do not turn off target screen. I don't even know if this is expected and if I should wait it to download something (download what? I have no idea). If this is not expected, what should I do to go on with the process?

I have checked other questions, but I couldn't tell if my case is the same, since other people state that they got into download mode by accident

    Why are you installing CM10.2 from download mode. just use recovery mode – Thomas Vos Apr 14 '15 at 14:19
  • as far as I recall, I've always flashed my CM roms in recovery mode. then when the update feature came out, I just used that – svarog Apr 14 '15 at 20:56
