    I went through the process and when I get to the download mode it asked me to hit the volume up button to go into loading a OS. So I hit it and it says “Downloading… Do not turn off the target!!!” it just sits there. not sure if it takes a while for the update but It has been doing this several times when I try to unroot it.

      Once you see “Downloading… Do not turn OFF the target” on your device, plug it in to your PC and then hit Start in Odin and it’ll start flashing the firmware.

      Hope it helps!
