    Last night my phone started acting strangely.
    It began telling me randomly that it was "Overheating" but the device itself did not feel particularly warmer than it usually does, in fact I have felt it much warmer before and not gotten any notification of it overheating.

    I left my phone plugged in overnight and upon waking up I found it was stuck in Download Mode. I've been searching all over the place and not able to find any solutions to this, I was able to get my phone to shut down by holding all four buttons down, and am able to reboot it into Download/Odin mode but not able to get it into Recovery Mode (by holding power+volume up+home) and not able to get it to boot up normally by just holding the power button.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Your pictures, music, etc., are gone, since you can't unlock the bootloader (if you could, you could try to boot the boot.img file, but there is none for Samsung phones), so about all you can do now is reflash the ROM. See [Samsung] How to flash Stock ROM via ODIN. It's not difficult - in fact, it's pretty boring.
