There was a time when All Samsung devices used to have a Home, Power and Volume buttons. When immersive displays became a fashion, the Home button almost disappeared. Now, some Samsung devices don’t even have a Bixby button. As a result, the traditional key combination (Home + Volume UP/Down + Power keys) to boot Samsung devices into the Download or Recovery mode has become obsolete. Thanks to the Samsung 300K Tool for Windows PC that we can now boot into Samsung Download Mode without pressing the hardware keys.
Actually, booting into the Recovery Mode on Samsung Galaxy devices is comparatively a little trickier than entering the Download or Odin Mode. Currently, the Samsung 300K Tool can only reboot your Galaxy device into the Download Mode only. It would have been a more useful utility for the owners of Samsung Galaxy phones or tablets if it also included a way to enter the Recovery mode.
Anyway, we just hope that the developer of the tool XcachorroX Pablo would add more features in the future. And until then we can at least just use it for the purpose it serves. The Samsung 300K Tool might come handy to those who don’t wish to press the physical buttons combination to boot into Samsung Download Mode. Also, it can help those who have a Galaxy device with damaged or non-functional hardware keys.
The good thing about the tool is that you don’t need to enable USB debugging to use it. But this is really funny because as soon as you boot into the Download Mode, you’ll not be able to enable USB debugging as your device will already be in Odin mode. You must enable that option to flash firmware or recovery file using Odin.
