    Exclamation Samsung Galaxy S3 wont Boot

    Hello,
    The other day I decieded to Root my Samsung galaxy s3 (GT-19300) (International) running 4.1.2, and then my phone was going great until I decided to install this application called: Chainfire3D ()

    After the application installed, my phone went to reboot, but was stuck at the Samsung Galaxy S3 GT-19300 text logo.

    the phone stays there, and does not get past this point.

    could someone tell me how I can get my phone to turn on again? as I am really scared, and I am not sure if my phone is broken or something.

    thanks for your help,
    S0NlC1

    Maybe try wiping and then flashing your nandroid?

    Perhaps I'm not reading the information for Chainfire 3D correctly, but in the description it states that it's only for Froyo & Gingerbread.
    Anyway, if wiping Dalvik/cache doesn't help, and you don't have a Nandroid backup, just put it in Download mode, use Odin to restore the Factory image (or whatever ROM you want) and don't install Chainfire 3D until the developer confirms that it's compatible with ICS/Jelly Bean.

    Are you getting some sort of error message when this happens or are you just still getting the bootloop after you flash?

    If you can get into recovery, just re-flash the known good ROM again. Wipe Cache, wipe Dalvik, factory reset, flash.

    Oh, sorry, I just re-read the OP. You never did flash a ROM, did you?

    If you can find the flashable zip of the OEM ROM, or for that matter any ROM that is known good for your model of phone, copy it to the root directory of your SD card (internal or external), boot into recovery, wipe cache, dalvik, factory reset, boot into recovery again, and flash the ROM from your SD card.

    I don't know where Chainfire 3D installs, but is it possible that the OP needs to wipe /system before reloading a new ROM? I can't think of any other reason that the phone would still have a boot problem if he's already loaded the stock ROM using Odin.

    How do I reflash a new rom? (sorry, I am new to the andriod world)

    also, a quick update of my problem, I just downloaded the Australian 4.1.2 XSA firmware () and I installed this to my phone in download mode using Ordin. Now my phone gets past the logo, and gets to the Samsung animated logo, and that just repeats itself over and over endlessly

    Do you have the Australian version of the phone? If not, you're lucky it still boots at all. As it says on the page you linked to:

    Every device use their own firmware..... SamMobile's advice is to use this only if you are 100% sure!

    Earlier, you posted:

    CF-Root-SGS3-v6.4 is NOT the factory image. In fact, it's not even a ROM. It's a rooting tool that roots your phone and installs CWM recovery. That's all.

    You clearly do NOT understand what you're doing. That's not meant as an insult, just fact. And continuing to throw random things at the phone, when you don't know what you're doing, is a good way to permanently brick it. So let's go back to the beginning. Don't try to load ANYTHING else on your phone until you know exactly what you're doing. First things first: Exactly which model of the GS3 do you have and what carrier are you on?

    Find the factory image, download it and the two boot chains (not sure if your version uses two, I have the USA verizon one and mine needs two).

    Flash the two bootchains, flash factor image.

    Google for step by step

    OK, going back to this page:

    If you look at the drops downs, you'll see there are multiple versions of the Galaxy S3. The i9300, i9300T, i9305 and i9305T all show they're for Australian carriers. Maybe some of the other SIII models are too. Are you sure the page listed is the right one for YOUR exact model of phone and carrier. If you still have the box, it should give you the exact model. Or if you remove the back, there ought to be a label somewhere (maybe under the battery) with the exact model #. There are many, many different versions of the S3. Each carrier's version is subtly different. It vital that you install only the correct ROM for your specific phone.

    Under the battery, the Model is GT-i9300

    OK, the Firmware site shows that model, in Australia, comes in versions for Optus and XSA? Which are you on?

    Also, there's a forum here specifically for the i9300. I'd suggest reposting what you've done so far in a new thread in that forum. You'll may find people there with more specific knowledge of that model of the phone.

    Default Re: Phone wont Boot

    Well, that web site you linked to shows ROMs for specific carriers, so I'm not sure which one you should use. I don't have the i9300 version, so I'm hesitant to make a recommendation in ignorance. Someone in the i9300 subforum I linked to will probably have a better idea.
