Default HELP! Stuck in the "Downloading.. do not turn off target" Screen

Was updating my SGS when it got stuck on the screen where Android is digging in the dirt and says Downloading... do no turn off target.

Windows is also giving me an error "The Program can't start because RAPI.dll is missing from your compter. Try Reinstalling the program to fix this problem"

I tried reinstalling Kies but nothing happens.... Why oh why couldn't Samsung have just let us update OTA..... [sigh]

Yes, you can update your firmware through Kies.

I was aware that Kies was the delivery mechanism but there has been no word on Samsung releasing a new firmware via it yet to my knowledge.

Do you know what exactly has been made available?

Oh, my apologies.. I was on J4 on my way up to J5, and now it's stuck on that screen... this never happened to me on my previous Android units.

Ah, not exciting then and most likely not available in Europe.

Sorry I have no help to offer with your actual problem!

OTA would have been nice, yes.

Reboot it with the switch on/off button - press for 10 seconds (or may be longer).

For the RAPI.dll problem

for windows 7 (and probably for vista also):

The .dll error was solved by an italian user called manuel_84. Here it is:

Go to --> C:\Users\[YourUsername]\AppData\Local\Temp\KiesInstall\CabFile\OsDependen t\[Vista/XP]\Program Files\Common Files\Samsung\DeviceService
Copy the two .cab files and paste them on your desktop. Click two times on them and take the .dll files inner them. So, paste only the two .dll files in the Kies installation Path (C:\Program Files \Samsung\Kies\)

Now it should work

better to put in these folders also
program files/samsung/Usb drivers
program files/common files/Samsung/DeviceService


for xp:

I had this same problem and the solution that I found on another forum is:
  • Open the following folder:
    "program files/common files/Samsung/DeviceService"
  • Search for _rapi.dll and _ceutil.dll and copy to desktop
  • Rename the dlls removing the "_"
  • Drop the "rapi.dll" and "ceutil.dll" (renamed) into following folders:
    program files/samsung/Kies
    program files/samsung/Usb drivers
    program files/common files/Samsung/DeviceService

It worked for me

I had the same Issue and I was afraid to try and reboot it, I eventually got sick of it and did just that. I held in the power button until it shut off, I wait bout 30 seconds, the turned it back on. It came right back up for me.. Oh and for those that said do a battery pull, that's a great Idea but on my tablet, You can't take the battery out. Kinda like the I-phone in that aspect. Does any of yours come apart so you can pull the battery? I have the Tmobile Galaxy Tablet SGH-T849 .

ok you are still in download mode, just ensure you have a correct firmware package for your model and re flash again Check by using The webversion of Check Fus 2.0

ops I assumed you got into this problem using odin, since it is by using kies, try this first kies recovery

after that just to get yourself knowledgble about odin , read this [FAQ] Giant FAQ!!!! Read this first! Last Upated: 20/11/10

Hey guys,
I'm at my wits end here. My phone (Samsung Galaxy S) was stuck in a bootloop I couldn't get my phone to work (turn on again), after that I tried something called a 'coldboot' - where you hold down power+vol down+home - this then made matters worse because no when I try to boot up my phone, it won't turn on, plus I can't boot into recovery mode.
After all of this I re-pressed the 'coldboot' combination, and now my phone is stuck on a screen with a yellow android digging in the dirt saying "Downloading...Do Not Turn Off Target!"
What do I do now???!!!???
Any help will be highly appreciated!!!
