    I bought my GS3 from a friend and while doing a factory reset using TWRP I wiped my whole OS out. I can't get it to connect to kies either. Is there a way I can copy a stock rom to my sad card and flash the file via TWRP? Plz help guys I just got this phone I've been trying to fix it for eight hours straight now.

    Well try find a rom version dont matter and put it on your sd card and flash it in twrp and boot and enable usb flash drive put your fav rom/stock and flash it and if it works enjoy


    Edit: connect the sd card to your computer and put the rom there.

    Go to the XDA S3 forum and find a ROM in TWRP form that you like. Download the zip, put it on your SD card and, in TWRP, do an install. There are lot of "almost stock" ROMs, there are also a lot of "nothing like stock" ROMs that you might like even better.

    As the guy above me said it might be easier getting a close to stock custom rom as opposed to the S3 rom, I'm not entirely sure how to use TWRP either but I think you might need to wipe davlik, and cache and all that, which might be your problem? Obviously that will wipe out all that stuff though.

    Maybe check: http[double dot, forward slash, forward slash] teamw[dot]in[forward slash]whattowipe

    Fair enough man, I remember my first install of a ROM, and having problems, and the one thing I found out is when everything go's all to crap, is when you learn the most, and the quickest haha.
    Unfortunately I can't really help with TWRP but if you follow this link [http : //]galaxynote3root[. c om]/galaxy-note-3-tutorials/how-to-install-custom-rom-using-twrp-on-rooted-galaxy-note-3/
    it might help? Just make sure to do the wipe and factory reset part. Or else post what the error is might help?

    I'm doing that now. I will try anything... If I could actually connect to samsung kies I think this would be a lot easier but seeing as I can't do anything but TWRP it's a pain in my a ss

    Ok I skipped the wipe and factory reset step but didn't think that would be a problem seeing as in the first place that's what I messed up doing but I will try
