    My Samsung S5 got an Update from Verizon and is now stuck in a boot loop. When I try to get to the "Wipe Cache Partition" menu all it says is "Maintenance Boot Mode" or "Recovery Booting...."

    First thing I did was purchase a new battery from Samsung but that didn't correct the problem.

    Sometimes I'm lucky and if I pull the battery, wait a few minutes and put the battery in, then plug the phone into the charger, then after a about 20 reboots, it finally boots.

    I've reset the phone and even used Verizon's "repair" utility but since it goes into a boot loop each time, it never completely restores the phone to factory default.

    Thanks. Yes, but the menu options never appears.

    Maybe bring it to a Verizon store and show them what their update did to the phone -- see if they can do anything about it. Or you could also try the Samsung rep at your local Best Buy.

    I noticed the same thing on my Verizon S5. I wipe the cache partition once a week, but not this week! That option is gone using the 3 button routine. What's up with that Verizon?

    Well, I just rebooted my s5 and lo and behold the old menu popped up! I was able to wipe the cache partition after all! I can't explain it, I can only report it. Good luck!

    Verizon online support said to do the same thing but went on to say that I would be charged a repair fee because years ago the corner of the screen cracked and it may be causing this issue today. Yeah, right.
