Default [TrIcK] Are you stuck on the Samsung screen ?? see here ...

Howdy Note users...
This is a little tip to help users get out of that annoying "STUCK ON THE SAMSUNG LOGO" issue that we see "ALL" the time.
As you know, the condition is brought on when users get a bad download, the wrong download, or a bad kernel etc...

The normal remedy is pulling the battery out, then waiting, then putting it back in to get your recovery booted. All the while you are having to pull the case apart, causing damage and wasting time.

Here is the trick to get around all of that, and boot into your recovery from the stuck "SAMSUNG" screen.

(First)....simply push both the volume up, and volume down buttons at the same time. ( while the screen is stuck at "SAMSUNG" of course)

(Second)..then push the power button, and hold it..until the device begins to vibrate every 3-4 seconds..

(Third)...allow the device to vibrate 3 times, then release the power button, but continue to hold the volume up/down buttons..

This recovery trick will take about 20 seconds, but the device will boot into your recovery from the stuck screen using this method..

Note: it also works to get you into download mode from the stuck screen, but you only use the volume down, and power buttons in that process...

I hope this helps a few of you in avoiding the battery pulls and the case damage....

Standard disclaimers apply, and mileage may vary......

Happy flashing....g

This might work for some circumstances, but I flashed a beta recovery once that wouldn't let me boot anything, just sat at the Samsung (bootloader) logo. I had to flash the previous (working) version of recovery in ODIN and all was fine.
AT&T LG G2 - 4.3, AOKP
Samsung Note i717 - 4.2.2, Unofficial AOKP
Nexus 7 Wifi 2012 - 4.4.2, Stock Rooted (m-kernel)

Which is why I posted the last two lines in the OP...
