    Every time I go into download mode my phone boots itself after a couple of seconds. This started to happen after I downgraded my phone from marshmallow. I was following a youtube video (How to root Verizon Galaxy S5 (SM-G900V) by LightningForce), but I didn't understand what I was doing since I'm very new to this. I got stuck at 9:14. My phone got stuck on the Verizon screen, and I did a factory reset. After that, I saw my phone was downgraded, and it asked me if I wanted to upgrade, which I did eventually because I kept coming across difficulties and gave up.

    So now my phone is back to where it was before I started everything (I'm not 100% if it actually is though), but when I go to download mode my phone boots itself after a couple of seconds while I'm there. It also turns on by itself when I power it off. The only time I was successful staying in download mode was when I left my phone alone overnight and tried in the morning.

    Does anybody know how I could fix it?

    Hi, welcome!

    There's no need for download mode unless you flash stock firmware, are you meaning recovery?
