it shouldnt show boot logo when you put it in download mode

pull the battery
connect your phone via usb cable to pc
press and hold vol down home button then also hold power power button (try it with the battery still removed and with the battery)
you should then be in download mode


if you cant get into download mode by button presses you can try a usb jig


if you still cant get into download mode after that you will have to goto a repair shop

its a usb cable that has been cut and had some resisters placed accross the pins - you can make one yourself or just buy one for about 3 uk pounds from amazon

if you turn the phone off and put the usb jig in the usb socket it puts the phone into download mode without button presses - iv got one

remember if you dont know something google is your friend

iv no idea why you would want to do that


if you cant format data in recovery mode just flash stock rom via odin in download mode

if you cant get into download mode theres something wrong with the bootloader and no ammount of formatting data will help you there
