1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Wow... looks like the bootloader. Did you set it to install updates? Is it booting normally at all? Have you tried clearing the cache? :)

    As mentioned above that is Odin mode, aka Download mode. Essentially you can flash firmware to your phone through this, updates, ROMs...quite a few different things can potentially be flashed through it. Kinda similar to .sbf if you are familiar with the Motorola line, although this is different at the same time. I am not sure if it will be useful for the SGN though.

    You can get there by holding volume down while powering on.

    You got to that screen because you were holding down the volume down button while powering on the phone. Freaked me out the first time I did it. LOL
