Question about Download mode

Hi guys!

I desided to enter Download mode on my device just out of curiosity. I entered it, saw it (didn't transfer or try to download anything) and I went on exiting. But... I used a wrong key combination - isntead of Volume DOWN and start buttons, I tried with Volume UP and start button. Nothing happened, at least the menu's appearance didn't change. I realised I was using the wrong combination and did it right the second time. The phone turned off and then on and everything seems to be ok. My question is - could I have done something to the software just by trying to exit Download mode with the wrong key combination? I fill very much appreciate it if someone can give me a clue. 

 

Best,

A.

as above if you had any issues from any accidental combinations etc you would have known before posting here :smiling-face:

in the future all I can say is, and read it with heavy underlines lol,

don't play around with download or recovery modes unless you are absolutely sure you know what you are doing or are following a guide / Samsung advice specifically !

good luck lad :smiling-face:

@Antoanet  Whilst you should not have problems  best to read up on it if not familiar.  See some information here https://www.samsungsfour.com/tutorials/how-to-enter-exit-download-mode-on-galaxy-s10-s10e-s10-plus.h...

Going in an out dowload mode does nothing don't worry.

Download mode is a separe component of the OS which allows you to flash software via ODIN to install updates or repair a failed OS. (updating via ODIN is not supported by samsung and voids your warranty if the assistance guy discovers you did that).
