Angry Phone frozen on "Android system recovery <3e?"screen

Today I decided to have the amazing idea of turning on my phone and now im stuck on this screen

The screen says:

ANDROID SYSTEM RECOVERY <3e>

SAMSUNG SYSTEM RECOVERY UTILS
-FOR BML-

-REBOOT SYSTEM NOW
-APPLY SDCARD:UPDATE.ZIP
-WIPE DATA/FACTORY RESET
-WIPE CACHE PARTITION

E: PATH: /DATA/update_success
E:update file is backed up: Reported

# MANUAL MODE #


I have not installed any mod, or update, or rooted my phone in any way shape or form. All I did was turn it on

I've selected every single option but none of them work, even resetting to factory settings .
Taking out the battery and the sd card didn't do anything either. I am completely clueless on what to do. I have no idea how this happened or how to fix it. please help.

Can you get in to Download mode by holding camera +volume down +power? If so go into all things root and download Odin, it's a sticky in there. If you still want it stock then choose the stock zip.

You should be able to select reboot system now by using your volume buttons and then use the camera button as the enter button..

Default Mine wont choose any option.

Hi. My phone is doing the exact same thing except it wont let me choose any of the options. When I down Power and Volume up/Down it just resets that phone and goes back to the recovery screen. Once its on that screen its just frozen, it wont let me choose any options.

Any advice?

Also there were no updates that I know of unless it updated in my sleep. I put it on charge last night and went to bed, and now its doing this first thing in the morning.

You cant use the volume button to move up and down on the screen to choose anything?

If you can do like mentioned above and move the volume up/down button to the "reboot system now" and press the camera button to make that selection.

No. My phone wont allow me to do anything with the buttons. I am looking at other websites trying to figure out what to do. I can get into the options but I just cant do anything. It automatically chooses the option and freezes after it says file not found.

One thing that does happen is when I press the home button the text disappears and shows the background which is the little green man with a triangle with a an exclamation mark in it. But like I said it is just the background image being emphasized... its been sitting here for about 15 minutes doing nothing.

If you can get the phone into download mode (power button/volume down/camera) then this will get you back to normal

Will it work on a Samsung Fascinate? My power button is my camera in camera mode. What would be the way to get into it? What I have been doing is holding down the power button and volume up button.

Just realized I am in the Galaxy Prevail forum. Ooops. It was what popped up on google first.

I tried different keys this time. I turned the phone off and held the volume down button while inserting the USB cord. Worked. Now its on the dowloading screen and I have nothing to use for it. Thanks for the help though. I will see if I cant find a useable ODIN download website.

You have a backup with Verizon? How are you doing that? Are we talking about the Fascinate? You're in the Prevail section. Did you use the Fascinate Odin on the Prevail?

I think I might be reading too much into this...

Ric I noticed you are having troubles with your phone. I think you might find more useful advice in the Samsung Fascinate forum. I don't mean to demean anyone here but there are quite a few helpful ideas there.

Here is the link.. Samsung Fascinate - Android Forums

I'm using Atheros xplore7400 mobile phone and I don't have the camera button, only the volume up/down and power. How can I reach the download mode? I have the same problem as CHC had. Stuck at recovery and can't move anywhere from there...

Thanks for replies
