    Hello, i need a hand with my Galaxy Note 4. I can't at all get I to recovery mode, when I restart it with the appropriate keys pressed, I see the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 letters along with the blue words on the top left letting me know the phone is entering recovery mode (it's what happens every time anybody boots Into recovery mode from an android phone) but then all I see is the Android guy you normally get for a bit at the begging of recovery mode, he comes on the screen for a small fraction of a second, every 5 or so seconds.. Non stop until I take out the battery.
    The device is rooted, please help.

    Hmmm. Have seen a similar issue on one other device. While the android is doing its thing flashing off and on...press and release both the volume up and down keys,or press them alternately. It *should* allow you to access the menu functions.

    Without more information I cant help. Are you still able to access the android os? What led to you needing to get to recovery and now can not? In some cases just connecting a device like this to a pc will allow recovery to load when you attempt to do so. Others it does not seem to matter whether it is connected or not. You could be in a boot loop for all I know with what information I have to work with. If you are indeed boot looped I suggest checking the forum here for your device. There may be information for just such an issue.

    Nothing worked. Ended up having to flash a custom recovery (twerp or whatever) and then from there reset my phone.
