Having spoken to Samsung on numerous occasions regarding this issue, I am even more confused due to conflicting advice...

I believe you first have to connect a USB C lead to the phone in order to access recovery mode!!

If I don't have access to a PC or laptop, I was told a pair of connected USB C headphones or a powerbank/charger..

Is this correct or is it a PC/laptop only...

Why did Samsung make it so difficult to access cache partion in recovery mode!!

I had an old laptop that I've not used for many years...
Switched it on, plugged my S21 Ultra into it and in less than 15 seconds, was in recovery mode and wiped the cache partition...

Thanks to all those who offered help🙂

Also, has anyone had any niggly problems after the Android 12 update?

My main concerns are slightly 'smearing' when scrolling text when adaptive refresh is activated....Not as bad as 60Hz, but not as smooth as it was prior to the update!!

Also, despite Samsung telling me this is an intentional upgrade, I hate the 'stretching' of the graphics when reaching scrolling limit on certain apps/websites..
Happens when scrolling texts, emails, contacts, settings etc...I find it annoying and if it is intentional, then why only on certain screens!!

Does anyone else find it annoying?

I found out that if you use USB C cable connected to another phone, it's also gets you into recovery mode.
