I was following the instructions from here trying to root my s20+ Plus sm-a207f and everything going fine until I had to do a reboot and now my phone is a bootloop and a I keep getting a error message about flashing the wrong binarie . Can someone tell me how to bypass this message to get into recovery to do a factory reset and wipe the cache? Is there a tool that I can install on my pc that would do a reset... Would a abd command do it? I am a very sick man that has rapidly progressing COPD with about 25% of my lungs that is still working. So any and all help i will be truly grateful for...tyvm. I really need my phone.

Have you tried to do a hard reset with the device itself?

    Sorry for the late reply but I just got out of the hosptail again how can I do a hard reset when it wont even turn off ? And how do I get into recovery without a bixby button? Tyvm for your time and help.
    If a Bixby button isn't present then it should be obvious that you can't boot phone into recovery by means of additionally pressing the Bixby button - 3 buttons press method.

    You have to boot into phone's recovery by means of ADB

    Code:
    adb devices
    adb reboot recovery

    what requires phone is connected to PC via USB and USB-debugging got enabled on phone.
