    Exclamation I broke my Samsung Galaxy S3 trying to upgrade it

    So, I have a Samsung Galaxy S3 (GT-I9300) with 4.1.2 Android Software and I tryed to upgrade it to 4.4.2 Kitkat version. I don't know what have I done, but it wouldn't start. It shows the "Samsung Galaxy S3" message and that's all. I could use some help. Thank you, guys!

    I would try rebooting into recovery and clearing the system cache. Here is how: [Guide] Rebooting into Recovery Mode for the Galaxy S2, S3, and Tab2.

    I tried the guide that you posted here and nothing changed. I don't know what else could I do. Here is a photo of my S3. It is stuck like this and it doesn't do anything.I broke my Samsung Galaxy S3 trying to upgrade it-img_20140823_150426.jpg

    Did it update normally or was it flashed as a zip through recovery?

    I tried to update it manually. I used an online tutorial and I might have missed some steps and now my phone is useless. Is there another method to make it work?

    Can you still get into the boot loader?

    Then try to find a stable release of the OS for your device and flash it as a zip

    If it doesn't work you can find a Rom and flash it though Odin. For that you will need to reboot on download mode ( Volume down + power button + Home button

    There is plenty of tutorial on how to flash with Odin. Make sure you download Odin for galaxy S3 and a ROM for Galaxy S3
