    Hi everyone,

    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!!

    Don't feel bad, I did the same thing while flashing from CND to Gummy. Not sure what I did wrong, but I managed to recover thanks to Wug's toolkit. After I wiped and flashed new, I am no longer stuck. I'm guessing that odin is not installed somehow.

    How are you trying to boot into recovery? The volume down button + power button will take you to Download (Odin) mode. Both volume buttons + power button take you to bootloader mode where you can access recovery.
