Updated yesterday and since I cannot access the boot menu. Tried all combinations of holdings keys but keeps booting to pin entry. Any ideas?

Yup Samsung have right messed up the so called stable release, I had to use ADB through my PC, and then found out, you can just use the usb cable, but must be connected to a PC then you can use the volume up and power button method, but once again, must be connected to a PC, which is kind of backwards to me.

I've never had to do it until android 12, it's stupid to have to do it if you ask me, if a PC is required, then you can do it via ADB easier.

USB connection to boot into Recovery has been the same on all the global, Exynos, devices since at least the Galaxy S20 range on Android 10.
