  1. I was messing around with this option and it has locked up my phone. The screen won’t respond to touch and Holding down the power button for a restart does nothing except vibrate once even if I hold it for a full 60 seconds.

    No idea how to fix this. No sites have been helpful so far. I can’t be without my phone. Its an S10+

    • Hey Steven I just did the same thing to my Galaxy S20 with the corner cutout option. I freaked out for a good 5 minutes then held down power and volume up for a hard reset. After the reboot I was able to go back into developer options and turn it off. THANK THE DROID GODS!!
