    When i try to clear my cache like you suggested I get a totally different screen on my Tab 2 It says worning!! a custom OS can causecritical problems in phone and installed applications.

    If you want to download a custom OS, press the volume down key. Otherwise, press the volume up key to cancel.

    Hello. The only other thing I can suggest is a reset. Have you tried that?

    Welcome to the forums. You may need to reflash the stock ROM with a PC program called Odin. You can get ROM files from either Sammobile or Samsung updates.

    The instructions on how to boot into recovery mo longer work on a Samsung Galaxy Tab2 10.1 tablet.
    When you hold power and vol up at the same time, the logo no longer appears.
    It just brings up a warning screen that a custom OS can cause critical problems.
    It then goes on to say that if you want to download a custom OS, press the volume down key or volume
    up to cancel.
    Pressing volume down goes to the ODIN screen. Downloading... Do not turn off target!!
    It stays on that for hours, doing nothing.
    Are there new instructions?

    I have since discovered that I will be able to download a previous stock version by running odin3 on my workstation and hopefully regain the ability to run recovery and upgrade to Lollipop.

    This method of booting into the recovery no longer works for me on my Samsung galaxy Tab2 10.1
    I have used it in the past, but trying to use it this weekend, holding down the power button and volume up until the logo appears does not work. Instead, a warning appears that installing a custom OS can cause critical problems, and that if I want to download a custom OS, press the volume down key or volume up to cancel.
    On pressing volume down, I am taken to an ODIN load screen. Downloading... Do not urn off target!! which it stays on for many hours until I power it off.
    Has anybody got any idea on what I should do next, please?
    Long press the power button to simulate a battery pull. As for the rebooting into recovery, I'm just making sure, but you did hold just power and volume up?

    if i do the power button thing, i don't end up on the screen with a blue bar. first it asks me if i want to download a custom os, if i continue with it, it just brings me to the odin mode. if i cancel it, it'll just turn my tab on. what am i doing wrong? i can't seem to get to the screen with options. i have android version 4.2.2 [Guide] Rebooting into Recovery Mode for the Galaxy S2, S3, and Tab2.-20150331_211750.jpg

    Try again, but make sure you are pressing volume up, power and home.

    Hello,

    I am an S3 user. My problem is that my wifi and mobile data automatically turns on even if I turned it off. There are a lot of ads popping up too. I tried the reboot thing but it didn't work. How can I fix it? Thank you.

    Following these didn't work for me and my Galaxy S3. I actually had to: 1) clear the cache partition, 2)apply the updates from the cache and then 3) factory reset in order for the phone to reboot and fully restart.

    Thanks for all the help Android fam!

    Sorry about the delay. I would try resetting app preferences. This can be done in settings>apps>menu>reset app preferences.
