Today I was flashing a kernel and my phone entered a boot loop at the Google screen. I tried to reboot into recovery to restore my nandroid backup, but the phone was stuck on the "Downloading" screen and the usual volume button options wouldn't work.
As I was still stuck in a bootloop I feared that I had bricked my phone, but after a couple hours I managed to get it to boot again by restoring a stock image using Odin.
So now my phone boots, but Odin/"Downloading" screen remains my only option when trying to access recovery. Please help!!
