Boot Issues:

Stuck on Samsung Boot Screen

If it's stuck on the Samsung boot screen, I've got out of this by executing a force restart and quickly switching to pressing the combination for recovery mode booting.

Flashing TWRP:

  • Download the latest TWRP gts28wifi image
  • Place the device in Download Mode.
  • Connect the USB cable.
  • Use heimdall to flash it on.
$ sudo heimdall flash --RECOVERY twrp-3.3.1-0-gts28wifi.img

Reboot into recovery mode and you should be fine.
