As per the email:

Let the battery die, do NOT turn it back on.

  1. Plug it into the power cord once the battery dies
  2. IF IT TURNS BACK ON, unplug it again right away and wait for the battery to die again
  3. If it does not turn back on when you plug it in, follow these steps EXACTLY:
  • Hold the Volume up, Bixby, and Power buttons at the same time, and keep them held down until you see the Samsung logo.
  • After 30 seconds, you should see the Android Recovery Menu. If your phone boots up as normal, try repeating the previous two steps.
  • Press the Volume down button four times, until Wipe data/Factory reset is highlighted. Select it using the Power button.
  • Press the Volume down button seven times until Yes — delete all user data is highlighted. Select it using the Power button, which triggers the reset process.
  • Once the factor reset is complete, press the Power button and select reboot system now.

If it DID turn back on, then wait for it to die again, and this time, hold the buttons from the first step down, and have someone else plug it in, so it boots WHILE you're holding them down. Then finish the steps.
