[Q] S3 I9300 International bricked - Need help
Hi guys, I desperately need some help, I've spent about 3 days reading through forum posts in lots of forums and I don't know what to do next, I'm trying to unbrick my friends S3 which failed on a stock firmware update, not to sure how, I think she may have taken the battery out or something :( anyway, I have been trying to rescue it, I can get to download mode, but not recovery mode, and if I try to turn it on normally I just get a white screen now :( I was advised to get a full recovery package, which I did and it fails at re-partitioning and uploading the pit file.

Welcome to the forums!
I assume that's O2 in the United Kingdom? Why aren't you using http://samsung-updates.com/details/2...00XXUGNA5.html - that seems to be the latest firmware (4.3).
Did this phone already have 4.3 on it at one point? If so, you'd get an error trying to downgrade it, which is what appears to be happening.
Does Download mode look like this?
