Stuck @ the Samsung screen? This tip might help.
I have no idea if this will work for anyone else or if it's just a fluke for my setup.
My recovery is twrp 126.96.36.199. Obviously I'm mdk.
When I get stuck @ the Samsung screen, I can hold volume up, power and home and it will get the rom to boot. Regardless of whether it's a touch wiz or aosp rom. 4.3 same result.
To be clear, in order I hold the volume up, then power, then home.
Only have to hold for a second or two.
The screen will go black, I let go of the buttons as soon as I see it black then my boot logo comes on and I'm good. Have done this @ least 20 times. Works every time. Now I've not tried this after a rom flash fail. It's for a rom I am already running and for whatever reason the phone hangs @ that Samsung logo. Usually after I screw with something.
Your mileage may vary.
Heck what's the worse that happens? You have to do the battery pull anyways? Then your not out anything.
But hopefully this works for someone else too.
Damn convenient not to have to pull the battery and get the phone out of my case.
Again could just be a fluke for my setup. I don't care though. It's a nice work around for me to keep from pulling that battery.
Hopefully this is a help to someone and saves you some work.
