To get out of the Downloading, do not turn off the target screen, you just need to press and hold down the VOLUME DOWN, HOME, and POWER buttons simultaneously. It is very important that you press all the 3 keys at the same time and keep holding them down until your phone turns off and restarts itself. If it doesn’t restart itself, then you can press down the power button and restart it like the way how you would normally restart your device. That’s it. You are good to go!

Note: If your device doesn’t have a physical HOME button, then you need to press and hold down the POWER button and the VOLUME DOWN button instead.
