    Default Re: S3 Frozen on Samsung Start Screen after Software Update

    I did this, but in my case it does not work because, at the moment to do the update, Kies does not recognize the device.

    Please, help me!

    I managed to recover the firmware (thanks a lot) , it worked 1 day and the system is frozen again, I will redo it, however, i guess that there is a reason why it is frozen which causes it to get stuck, does anybody know why? how can i solve the cause?

    Ni, S/N can be found under the battery, copy it and it should work for you.

    The first thing I tried was the 'Firmware Upgrade & initialization' option in both Kies and Kies 3. I managed to get quite far, but at some point of the download/installation process I got an error message saying that the device was not recognised.

    I've done lots of reading, but have not managed to find a solution.

    Has anyone had the same problem?

    Regards

    Thanks in advance
    I can't believe that I'd be experiencing the same problem you had. This is my third time to experience system crash with my S3. And now I'm getting f*cked up with this thing. That "unrecognizable" thing happened to me as well and I seriously don't know what to do. I have tried almost a dozen times but same result. Until I realized, I already have the latest firmware upgrade. I am in my way for finding the real solution for this. Been stuck for 4 days nows. I am considering through ODIN. I'm currently downloading the latest firmware from Samsung Updates. I'll get back to you as soon as it made the difference. Thanks!

    Does This Method Erase All Your Data ?

    Cause I Have No other choice but trying this way (All other means failed to boot my mobile or restoring the data)

    Actually getting my data is more important than the device itself, it has 2 and half years of notes, pics, and conversations.

    This is the pop up warning when using the firmware upgrade and initialization while entering the Phone in download mode.


    To some users in this thread it didnt wipe their data. However, My experience IT DID WIPE EVERYTHING, but I did initially have a full backup before trying to upgrade from 4.1.2 to 4.3 (which lead to my phone being stuck in startup). So use this as last resort. I think flashing single file using odin would keep all user data, but I have not tried that.

    The Kies restore process restored all except Call log, network settings, and the installed apps (and their data) Luckily I have all apks backed up.
    If anyone knows how to restore our network setting lemme know.

    Everyone do take note if the 4.3 upgrade was successful you will need to use kies3 for ANYTHING, if not you will need kies2.6. My Backup process was done using kies2.6 Before I attempted the upgrade to 4.3. My phone recovery (firmware upgrade and initialization) and then restoration process were done using Kies3

    I want to note I also had the greyed out start upgrade button, using windows vista I noticed the USB drivers are not stable, and devicemanager.exe kept crashing when I plugged in the phone to the pc when kies requests me to do so. I noticed I had better luck putting the phone in download mode, then plug the phone to the pc THEN launch Kies program.

    Better luck dealing with Greyed out Start Upgrade button:
    1. Enter phone to Download mode
    2. Connect phone to PC (if devicemanager crashes disconnect and reconnect)
    3. launch proper kies version for your phone

    You need to purchase a new battery and charger if yours isnt working. Then recharge the battery fully. Then follow the steps mentioned.

    Indeed going on 2.5 years without backing up your device nor saving your videos and pics, is a total bummer. Now with MTP device protocol its faster and safer than mass storage device.
    In addition android has made it extremely easy to export your contact list into a single vcf file. I dont know why anyone wouldnt make it a habit to backup the contacts monthly.

    I would suggest you try some data recovering software before attempting this initialization method. Maybe the recovery software might be able to view your phone as mass storage and retrieve your data. Do this as last resort as there is 50% chance it WILL wipe your phone.

    It did work to get past the annoying "Samsung" logo, but be careful.. NONE OF MY DATA SAVED, and it's likely that none of yours will save either. I lost all of my pictures, contacts, etc. I don't see how this would've been different from a factory reset, because either way, you lose all your stuff. You're basically starting from ground zero.

    Like everyone else said, use this as a last resort! Try to hack into your phone with Odin or something, I don't know..I'm not a huge Android tech person.

    Let's remember to back up our crap at least once a month, just in case something like this ever happens again. It sucks losing all of your precious memories.
