When I plugged in my edge it made a couple of funny noices as if the charger doesn't make proper contact, then it just freezed on a blue screen with a down arrow, underneath it says "Downloading Do not run off target". No matter what I do it is stuck on that screen. I took a photo of the screen -



You are in a so called "Download Mode". You should hold your power button until your phone reboots.

  • Hi I hold it but nothing happens – jacques du preez Jun 18 '15 at 17:46
  • Are you using the official charger? And if not unplug your device and press and bold the power button until it reboots. – iTechy Jun 18 '15 at 20:32
  • How long did you hold your power button? – Thomas Vos Jun 19 '15 at 7:59

power button and both volume keys together hold until it soft reboots, mine did this yesterday completely randomly whilst driving along listening to spotify, instantly thought i was being hacked, soft reboot and the phone is back to normal.

  • Are you sure that a reboot wasn't EXACTLY PREDETERMINED, and that all you have now is the patina of "normal"? – wbogacz Jan 9 '18 at 17:18
