    Default Galaxy Tab 10.1 ODIN3 Download Mode

    Last night I shut down my tablet and plugged it into the power cable to recharge. Instead of completely shutting down, it booted into some odd download mode from Samsung. The screen has the big green android robot and underneath it says that it is "Downloading..." and "Do not turn off target!!"
    In the upper left corner it says Reason: Download Cable

    I have never connected my tablet to my computer for internet via usb cable.
    12 hours later, it is still giving the same message. What do I do?

    Just force a soft reset/reboot and see what happens. Hold the POWER button for about 10 seconds and it should initiate the soft reset/reboot.

    I tried the soft reboot and it booted back up into the same mode.
    I then connected the USB drive to my laptop and tried the soft reboot again and it got one step further.
    It says "Connected Press the [start] of Odin3!!"
    When I touch the screen nothing happens.
    Any other ideas?
