    Recently I purchased an i9300 off the internet, it was supposedly a new phone ( and looks like it was) and everything worked find until the other day, my son removed the external SD card and used it in his phone, when my phone booted back up it stopped at the samsung boot screen. I tried putting the SD card back in but no joy. I can't confirm if the phone has ever been rooted. I was hopping some of the pictures below would help me understand if I am F**ked or not?

    Choose the wipe data/factory reset and let it run, it should format to out of the box stock, or to any updated os on the device.

    Volume keys to move up and down in the menu, then i believe the home button selects. Should say on the screen.

    If it does not come back up after that, you may have to go to xdadevelopers.com to find a stock/custom rom to flash the device to get the os properly installed.

    I am sure there will be others coming along to lend assistance, or know of a possibly easier way to solve this.

    By the way, welcome to Android and Android Central if you are new to the site.

    exactly what he says ^
    remember though to go to Storage, Unmount Sd Card next time you remove it if you didnt do it that time.. doubt thats what caused it though..?

    My S3 international version started rebooting by itself this morning and in the afternoon i noticed it was stuck on the samsung boot logo. Tried to restart, stuck on the boot logo. I tried to get into recovery mode, still stuck on the bootlogo. Anybody have any ideas? Stock international S3, not rooted.
