    Welcome to Android Central! This doesn't work for devices that don't have a removable battery.

    Are you suppose to remove the SD Card at the time you remove the battery and the SIM card?

    Welcome to Android Central! Are you talking about when you do a reboot? You don't have to remove the SD. If you plan to do a factory reset, I would suggest Unmounting and removing the card beforehand, because I've seen reports of the card getting wiped (or at least corrupted) during the reset process (even though it's supposed to be left alone).

    Ok so same thing happened to me, I forgot my password so I read that if you wipe everything completely that it will take the password away but instead when i finished with the clearing it restarted and went to the Samsung screen and just stays like that.
    i turned the phone off and tried the custom os downloading and now is on a screen that says \
    downloading ...
    Do not turn off target!!
    Oh and i have a Samsung galaxy s3

    I've read on this Forum to just take the battery out but scared to because its been on this downloading screen for about an hour and half. Don't want to mess it up if it is downloading
    HELP!
    Well I would suggest that you turn the phone off and press restart instead of power off and see what happens after it restarts. Now if my 20 year old son was here he'd know exactly what to tell you but I've had something similar to that happened before and he just restarted my phone and it fixed itself. It's just a suggestion and it may or may not work good luck to you

    YES! IT IS SAFE! go ahead and turn off the target, u won't be sorry. I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM- w/a galaxy centura TOOK a chance and took out the battery, put it back in - and doo do doo... it turned on... like it is supposed to, with theme song. IT WILL not TURN OFF, with the power button. Except not sure about a custom os, u could always wait until the battery runs out. I guess I shouldn't get all like "there's a warning not to gtet a custom os" and maybe it will all work out you'll have the custom os u want. Good Luck.

    I'm pretty sure this has been mentioned already previously in the thread, but to remind you, you can force a shutdown on Samsung devices by pressing and holding Power and Vol Down together for about 15 seconds. Then power on again normally. This should get you out of Download Mode.
