    Default Samsung Galaxy S3 Softbrick

    Hey there,

    I recently got a Samsung Galaxy S3 SGH-1747M and it was great. I did a lot of stupid stuff with it and ended up getting it softbricked. Do not worry though!! I figured it out. For everyone that is having this issue, this should work.

    Firstly, get your hands on ODIN and the proper recovery file for your phone.
    Put your phone into download mode (Volume Down+Power+Home). Then select download using Volume Up
    Plug your phone into your computer and uncheck everything and select PDA. Browse for your .tar file.
    Once the flash is done take the battery out then unplug your phone.

    Now take your SD card and put a custom rom on it and Gapps. In this case i used the latest Cyagenmod rom.
    Insert it into your phone
    Load into recovery mode using Volume Up+Power+Home.
    When you see the recovery writing in blue at the top of the screen let go of power but hold Volume up+home.
    When you phone flashes the samsung galaxy S3 screen let go of everything.
    Now simple look for load ZIP from external SD
    Run the new rom, then run the Gapps file. Reboot your phone and whoola.

    Worked for me. Comment if you have more questions :
