    Default Galaxy S3: Please Help Me, firmware upgrade encountered an issue

    Hello guys. This is my first time here. I have Samsung Galaxy s3 GT-I9300 . I have problems with my phone. I cannot use it. It shows up firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies & try again.
    I tried Press and hold the Volume Down+Home+Power buttons until a recovery mode screen appears. But when i press volume up to download a new firmware it happens nothing. It shows again the Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies & try again. Every 3 seconds i see Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies & try again.

    Please help me .
    Thanks a lot, and sorry for my bad english.

    Welcome to the forums.
    So you can't reboot into DOwnload mode at all?

    Maybe it is because the phone is not connecting good with a usb cable. I see on samsung kies every 2 seconds phone get connected and disconnected. I also tried other cables the same thing.

    First of all, be sure you don't have a cable connected when you attempt to boot into Download mode.
    Second, it sounds like you're pressing Volume Up + Home + Power - that will take you into Recovery mode (and will prompt you to press Volume Up) - we don't want that.
    Third, the Download (aka Odin) mode screen says
    "Downloading..."
    "Do not turn target off"
    (along with some stuff in the upper left corner).
    Fourth, in order for Download mode to be useful you have to have something on your computer to download to the phone. We'll need to know the carrier/firmware/region (if an International user) in order to direct you to the correct firmware.

    I downloaded the firmware for my phone. I was trying to make it work with Odin, but i think that the fail is all about the usb. Even that i used 4 different cables i still have the same problem, i see on Odin this : <ID:0/005> Added!!
    <ID:0/005> Removed!!
    <ID:0/005> Added!!
    <ID:0/005> Removed!!

    As I mentioned before, you're using the wrong key sequence.

    With the phone completely off, press and hold the Volume DOWN + Home + Power buttons simultaneously, and release them all when you see the Download screen that I described.

    Then connect the cable to your computer running Odin.

    I couldn't tell from your video - did the phone turn on as soon as you inserted the battery?

    Also, how long are you holding down the keys (Volume Down + Home + Power)? Once you feel the phone vibrate you should be able to let all of them go, and then just wait for that first screen (which appears in the video) that prompts you to press Volume Up.
