Easy Installer Samsung users fail to boot into TWRP
- /e/ version: All
- Device model(s): All Samsung
Easy Installer Samsung users fail to boot into TWRP, Easy Installer fails silently, if the log cannot be understood.
Users keep reporting that Easy Installer fails.
What is the current behavior?
A Samsung user fails to realise the urgency of the "double switch" required at this point.
install_instr_leaveDownload=Keep pressing simultaneously "Power" & "Home" & "Volume Down" until device turns off install_instr_startRecovery=Keep pressing simultaneously "Power" & "Home" & "Volume Up" until 'teamwin' screen appears
What is the expected correct behavior?
On Samsung phones the "boot into TWRP" must immediately follow "leave download". The phone must not reboot.
The user will Force stop [Volume down + Home + Power] get the timing right, it might take 10 seconds. The screen will change, but, keep the buttons fully depressed, so that the phone stops but does not start to restart react at exactly the point where the screen goes black (black, as in OFF), move the finger holding [Volume down] to [Volume up] so that TWRP will open.
The existing instructions quoted above do not convey any urgency.
May I suggest the following wording is an improvement.
install_instr_leaveDownload=Keep pressing simultaneously "Volume Down" & "Home" & "Power" until the very moment the device turns off install_instr_startRecovery=Instantly move fingers to pressing simultaneously "Volume Up" & "Home" & "Power" until 'teamwin' screen appears
A linked information page for Samsung phones would help inexperienced users.
