    i had my s3 i747m on cm13. i was having a lot of problems with bluetooth. so i tried going back to stock firmware and i bricked my phone. i can still access download mode.

    with odin running as admin or not, this is what it says when i try to install stock rom in download mode:

    ODIN MODE
    PRODUCT NAME: SGH-I747M
    CURRENT BINARY: Custom
    SYSTEM STATUS: Custom
    QUALCOMM SECUREBOOT: ENABLE
    Warranty Bit: 1
    BOOTLOADER RP SWREV: 2
    SW REV CHECK FAIL : Fused 2 > Binary 0

    i've tried looking for solutions, but all say the same thing...which is to use odin and install the stock rom file.

    i had twrp recovery installed if that helps.

    Do you have the correct boot stack flashed? If your stock rom is like kitkat and your going back from 6.0/cm 13 then you need to find the correct boot stack. Flash it before rom. I had this problem awhile back.

    Try to download a NANDroid save on a micro Sd card from the internet (from another phone) and then flash it with TWRP.

    before i waste my time searching for the boot file, did you load it into your phone with odin or a sd card? i have a 4gb card, so mine won't work.

    If your device doesn't have a password simply connect it to a pc using the USB cable and put the boot image file to your internal card and then flash it via twrp. Or simply flash it with odin.

    i reflashed twrp recovery and it worked to work again with cm13. thanks for the help, guys.

    i guess the recovery files were damaged? not sure.
