Hello, I accidentally flashed an incompatible custom recovery to my Samsung galaxy s5 sm-g900p and it is stuck trying to boot to it and it starts up then bootloops and repeat. I have tried pulling out the battery and leaving it and the sim and SD card out of the phone for at least 1 hour and it continues to attempt to boot into recovery. I cannot boot the phone into download mode to flash the stock recovery to the phone, I looked on other threads for any solution and I have yet to see one with my particular problem.

I cannot take this to a sprint store to see if i can get it fixed as this phone was a gift and I don't have a sprint wireless plan. I want to be able too keep my apps and data on the phone without formatting it.

I am running a Magisk rooted, deodexed stock android 6.0.1 sprint galaxy s5 rom.

Edit: I got the phone to boot into download mode by pulling out the battery, sim, and SD card and leaving them out for 10 minutes and pressing the Volume Down + Home + Power and I got it into download mode hopes this helps anyone else!

when this happens, you just need to hold the pwr, vol - and home button releasing the home button whenever it starts to boot. It could easily take 5 or 6 rounds of doing this until it gets to download mode, but itll eventually get there. No need to pull the sim or battery nor wait any amount of time
