So, let’s start with real user’s practical scenarios!
Practical Scenario 1: A User Samsung Galaxy S3 Stuck In Odin Mode
Alright so this is what happened. Since around 2 days ago, my Galaxy S 3 would have a black screen pop up for literally no reason, and it would mean it’s turned off. My phone’s also been really slow and laggy these days, especially when I’m trying to type. I kinda figured that it was lagging a lot and then died because overuse or something? I really don’t know. I wasn’t overusing it more than normal.
Anyway, I’d be using an app (like Facebook or Snapchat) then it would black screen/power off. It wouldn’t power on if I pressed the home button or power button, so I took out the battery then put it back in. In the past 2 days I’ve done this a lot… (my charger has also been weird and won’t charge unless it’s in a certain position… so my phone’s been on low battery or dying quick)
Right now, I’ve taken out the battery then turned it back on and now when I turn it on it’s stuck on a weird screen… it has the android logo, and says “Downloading… Do not turn off target !!” And on the top left corner in small print, it says “Could not do normal boot. ODIN MODE.”
I don’t know what to do Please help! I really didn’t install anything and am not downloading anything? It’s so weird. I don’t know what “root” means. (I googled my problem but all these terms are so confusing) I really don’t know anything about phones so please try to explain things in a way I would understand? D:
This isn’t my picture, but I found it when I searched it up. This is what it looks like.

Practical Scenarios 2: A User Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Stuck On ODIN MODE
My phone will not switch on. I have tried to press the volume up + power + home key and also volume down + power + home key. My phone only goes to a blue page which says ‘warning.. A customised os can corrupt your phone etc…’ and ‘press up to download’ or ‘down key to cancel and restart phone’. When I press down key my phone does not restart, just turns off and will not power back up. If I press the volume up key it will turn to a page saying downloading and will stay stuck on this page for hours. I have tried a number of combinations but nothing has worked. I cannot plug into a computer or go into samsung as I am on vacation on an island. I also cannot pull the battery out as I have a s6 edge and if I do unscrew it will void my warranty. Can anyone please help?
