    Default Deleted OS on Galaxy s3

    After I got the 4.3 update from Sprint, I decided to root and install a ROM on my phone, I know now that Knox was the culprit. I tried doing everything to get it to work again but I accidentally deleted the whole stock OS off my phone. Kies does not recognize my phone through emergency recovery, and ODIN won't recognize it either. All drivers are installed and phone is in download mode... Is there any possible way of saving my s3?

    Welcome to the forums.
    Try different USB ports, cables, don't use USB Hubs. Restart the PC, run Odin as an Administrator. See if those help.

    It would be useful to post your approach to fixing the problem in the forum, so other members can benefit from it as well.
    PLEASE, when asking for help provide as much information as possible. We can't help unless we know what the symptoms are and what you did before they began.

    LG G3 on Sprint. [Stumped and Bumped, Debloated, Startup apps managed, Trickster, Nova Prime, Swiftkey, G3 Tweakbox]--> Runs smooth as silk, now.
