I plundered getting my SIM card inserted and suddenly I got a black screen with a picture of a working man telling me "Downloading, do not turn off target!!"
It has been like this for awhile now, half an hour; is this normal? Or is something wrong?


Regards,

BTJ

In case other people get this issue and don't read XDA - this is "flash mode" - holding down the powerbutton for several seconds will power off the device and it can then be rebooted normally.

Yes, "took a chance" and powered down the device and up again and it was back to normal... Still not sure how I entered this "flash mode"....
