My tab 10.5 got stuck in download mode. I was trying to use JOdin, being that i'm on a mac.

I booted the tab into recovery via terminal and then attempted to use JOdin.

Once I started, I got an error saying I needed a PIT file, so it told me to restart my tablet and try again, the problem is, I cant restart it.
its stuck in download and I cant pop the battery out, of course.

I don't know the answer myself but maybe someone will help. I wonder what happens if the tablet is left on to let the battery run out. When it runs out and is recharged again and you power it on will it start at the boot screen and allow you to get into download mode or continue being stuck?

Someone else on these forums said to hold the POWER button, VOL - button and HOME together to exit download mode... for about 8 to 10 seconds. Does that work for you or is it completely stuck?

For me it worked, i.e. it ends Download Mode. But it reboots rhight away again into Download Mode. So the only way to get out of it is to flash using Odin.

I think it is caused bei Knox. You can one-click-disable Knox bei SuperSu App.

Before knowing the key combination, I did a full run down in Download Mode. Took approx 30h from 80% charge.

just press the download mode button combination... in the start of the download mode it will ask you a question to press down to cancel (reboot to system) or press up to enter download mode.... just press down... your device will reboot.

It rebooted to download mode because you used the key combo to reboot back to download mode.
Next time to reset the device hold POWER + VOL DOWN only.
No idea why people keep posting the wrong key combo for reset, I've posted it a thousand times already.
