I wanted to check if I had an unlocked bootloader or not and I pressed "Reboot into bootloader mode" in recovery mode.

It now has a black screen with a green android robot saying "Downloading... Do not turn off target!!"

I'm panicking what do I do how do I get out of this mode??

I fixed it. Power + vol up + home ( pressing all three simultaneously) should work. Hope this can help someone else who gets stuck!

  • Actually, an easier way would be to just hold the Power button until the device reboots. You may want to include the above in your answer.

  • No, I tried that it just came back into Odin mode. Aug 22, 2017 at 20:01
  • This is odd. What device is it?
