    I pulled the battery then instead of holding all three keys down at the same time i did as follows:

    Turn off the device.
    Press and hold the Volume Up key and the Home key, then press and hold the Power key.
    When the Samsung GALAXY GRAND Prime logo screen displays, release only the Power key
    When the Android logo displays, release the Volume Up and the Home key ('Installing system update' will show for about 30 - 60 seconds before showing the Android system recovery menu options).
    Press the Volume down key several times key to highlight 'wipe data / factory reset.'
    Press Power button to select.
    Press the Volume down key until 'Yes -- delete all user data' is highlighted.
    Press Power button to select and start the master reset.
    When the master reset is complete, 'Reboot system now' is highlighted.
    Press the Power key to restart the device.

    When you say "get my phone back", what exactly do you mean?

    Concerning your Verizon account/password, Verizon should be able to help you with that if you prove your identity.

    Are you just trying to get signed back into your phone?

    You mentioned Odin, what were you using Odin for? Does your device need its stock firmware restored or something?

    I can help you, I just need to know exactly what you are trying to do and exactly what you want to recover.

    OK this is getting closer to my problem, I have a rooted verizon s4, the boot loop robot isn't really the problem, I was in the middle of flashing a recovery and trying to install firmware for xposed, and I obviously did something wrong somewhere because even in recovery booting , after I wipe date/factory reset, when I reboot after that the blue light on the front of my phone comes on and won't load past the verizon logo. I believe I was getting close to a solution last night after many hours with a pc, but not quite fixed it, and when I say not quite I mean it's not fixed. And now I'm not near a computer. Is there anyway past this right now? Even after allowing it to stay on the verizon logo part of when it boots up, I let it sit for hours and still nothing. Ugh any suggestions?

    Alright so this is what happened. Since around 2 days ago, my Galaxy S 3 would have a black screen pop up for literally no reason, and it would mean it's turned off. My phone's also been really slow and laggy these days, especially when I'm trying to type. I kinda figured that it was lagging a lot and then died because overuse or something? I really don't know. I wasn't overusing it more than normal.

    Anyway, I'd be using an app (like Facebook or Snapchat) then it would black screen/power off. It wouldn't power on if I pressed the home button or power button, so I took out the battery then put it back in. In the past 2 days I've done this a lot... (my charger has also been weird and won't charge unless it's in a certain position... so my phone's been on low battery or dying quick)

    Right now, I've taken out the battery then turned it back on and now when I turn it on it's stuck on a weird screen... it has the android logo, and says "Downloading... Do not turn off target !!" And on the top left corner in small print, it says "Could not do normal boot. ODIN MODE."

    I don't know what to do Please help! I really didn't install anything and am not downloading anything? It's so weird. I don't know what "root" means. (I googled my problem but all these terms are so confusing) I really don't know anything about phones so please try to explain things in a way I would understand? D:

    This isn't my picture, but I found it when I searched it up. This is what it looks like.

    Try holding the power+vol up+home key buttons, it worked for me.
    I hope it does work for you also.

    What stock android version did your device have before you flashed recovery?

    Verizon devices with 4.3 or newer stock firmware have locked bootloader and can't flash a custom recovery, that bricks the device, especially the S4, some aren't revivable and forever dead when flashing TWRP on locked bootloader. Did you research any of this before you flashed?

    Go to Sammobile .com or samsung-updates .com and enter your model number in their search feature, find your stock firmware and flash it with Odin.

    Do a Google search for:

    "Verizon S4 i545 return to stock"

    That should give you links to everything you need.

    One more thing, make sure you flash exactly the android version you had to begin with or a newer firmware, DO NOT flash any firmware that is older than what you had, locked bootloader devices can't be downgraded, you can only flash the same or newer, there is no going back in versions. Downgrading firmware also bricks the locked bootloader devices.

    Oh my god, You are my hero! Ive had a nightmare with my Samsung s6 that only lasted 5 days before dying on me, while leaving home to study in England In september, couldnt send it to repair before i got back home to Norway for christmas, the company that sold it to me basically lost it In the system, and had a non existent customer service to Get a hold of by calling, as I got back home to Norway this summer, I went to the company, which where totally ignorant bastards who gave me the blame, and threatened to might have thrown away the phone. 3 weeks later, it shows up In the managers safe, and I receive it back today, thinking yey finally Ive got it And its been fixed. But then Ive been having this same trouble which Ive tried to solve for the last five hours. If It hadnt been fot this exact post, I seriously would have used my Samsung as a golf ball, and enjoyed the sight of it disapering In the ocean from a decent golf swing. Thank You, and thank god for androidCentral.com!

    Go to Sammobile .com or samsung-updates .com, enter your model number to find your stock firmware, download it.

    Install Odin on PC.

    Install USB drivers for Samsung phones.

    Connect to PC with Odin open while in download mode.

    Click the AP button in Odin, browse to your stock firmware, select it.

    Click start in Odin, wait for the green PASS! and the device will reboot.

    If it bootloops, power off the device then boot to stock recovery and wipe cache and reboot.

    I useds Kies 3
    1) Connect to laptop with USB , turn on Kies 3
    2) Restart your device - use the power button + vol Down + home button.
    3) Kies 3 will capture your device. Then go to TOOLS on Kies and click. --- Tools --> Firmware Upgrade and Initialisation.
    Mine was fully restored in 35 mins
    Hope it helps.

    A beautiful person on another forum had the suggestion to "press the volume down key when it was supposed to be the volume up" when you get to the screen before this downloading loop sticks the phone, and it worked! My phone rebooted, and now is booting normally.

    So if this happens to you, future reader, try taking the battery, sim, and sd card out, then put the battery back in (not the other two yet), and hold down-volume, power key, and home key at the same time. When the menu comes up that says to press volume up to continue (to Odin and the downloading loop) or press volume down to restart, press volume DOWN (yes, I know, I thought it would be a waste of time too). Then press the power key only to turn the phone on like normal.

    Mine is now booting properly, even after a restart. After this is fixed, you can open it back up and replace the sim and sd card.
    I did the same thing (volume down + home button + power button). Then press volume down to restart. The samsung screen appears but it goes back to odin mode. How can i fix this? Thank you

    You need to flash your stock firmware using Odin in PC.

    You have a device that has a locked bootloader. Devices with locked bootloader can't flash anything that IS NOT stock. That means you can't flash TWRP/CWM custom recovery and you cant flash CM/AOSP/LineageOS ROMs. You have to unlock your bootloader first, and that's only IF it "can" be unlocked, most Samsung bootloader these days can't be unlocked at all. Those devices will never be able to use TWRP.

    Do a Google search for:

    "Return to stock (your model number)"

    That will probably give you search results containing your stock firmware, the tools to flash the firmware and instructions for how to flash it.
