    My phone gave an note saying it needed to cool down to continue normal functionality, switched itself into the Samsung boot logo then looped. It starting making strange intermittent vibrations along side with the boot loop. I did all the steps apart from master reset with no joy. I then finally did the rest from ODIN…. when it booted back up, all was fixed again. It was a bit harsh that it had to wipe everything but it had abackup from 2 week ago….. so not all gloom….. thank you
