I have an older Samsung phone model Galaxy Core SM-G360F which I didn’t use for several years. Today I wanted to use it again, but I can’t remember the password that I set up on it years ago. I decided to do a factory reset, but alas, for some reason I am unable to get the recovery menu with the usual key combination: Volume UP + HOME + Power On. If I keep these three keys pressed, the phone turns on and displays this menu:
Please note that there is nothing below this text except the Samsung’s usual logo. Here is a picture where I tried to catch the entire mobile phone’s screen:
I don’t know why this "Odin Mode" appears instead of the recovery mode from which I could select Factory reset?
If I keep the following 3 buttons pressed: Volume Down + HOME + Power On, I will get the download screen like this:
and pressing Volume UP leads me to something that also seems to be some form of Odin Menu. But I can’t choose Factory reset from that menu either. If I press Volume Down at that point the phone just restarts itself.
Does anyone know how to get into the Recovery mode by using the phone’s buttons only?
