    I have this issue with the ODIN MODE. It gets stuck. I tried what suggested and took the battery out and left it for 10 mins just in case. but now the phone wont charge (Yes I put the battery back in) I have tried different leads and even through the PC. Then a yellow square appears with the explanation mark. after a few minutes or 30 mins it will start to charge for a few mins and then stops again. and again after a few more mins it starts again. I have even tried a wireless charger that fits in the charging port and that didn’t even work. (Waiting for a delivery of the one that fits to the 2 notches in the rear of the phone to try that.

    I have gone back into Download more as i thought it might be doing an update or something. I have left it for an hour and it is still in Odin Mode.

    Its a Samsung s5 SM-G900F

    Any ideas?
