After putting my Gear into download mode and using the cradle and a usb cord to hook it up to my laptop to flash a recovery to it it got stuck on that screen, i would like to get this resolved red pretty fast, the gear is getting hot and i think it might get burned into the screen. Does anyone know a solution to this?

Did you untick auto-reboot ?

If you did, your gear wont automatically reboot once the flash has finished.. once you confirm the flash has completed, simply manually reboot your gear into recovery mode & you will be welcomed by the TWRP logo.


The whole point of unticking the "auto-reboot" option is so it doesn't boot back into the android OS, otherwise the recovery will be overwritten with the default one.. I repeat you must manually reboot your gear into recovery mode by holding down the power button.

ok, I started it into the recovery and download menu right after i flashed the recovery, instead of rebooting to the normal android like i was, but when i choose recovery mode the screen turns off and stays like that until i hold down the power button, then it reboots to the normal gear android interface instead of showing the TWRP logo. am i doing something wrong??
