    Hi, I currently have the Samsung galaxy S3 on virgin mobile and this morning it said that there was a new update for my phone. I believe that this might have been the 5.0 update because i was previously on the 4.4.4 or 4.4.3. After it installs it starts booting up however it doesn't boot up to the my home screen like usual. It goes into recovery mode. From there i can choose to reboot system now which i do but then it just reboots to the same page. So basically i am stuck in the recovery page. Is there anything i can do to fix this? Thanks

    Try doing a factory restore, you can do it in recovery. You will lose all your data. The update could of screwed something up

    It wouldn't be lollipop. The s3 might not get 5.0.

    Is there anyway of recovering my data? All i would care about recovering would be the picture files and my contacts
