    man that's horrible to hear, on the bright side at least it didn't drop from a rollercoaster and hit the bricks n the only thing you were able to recover was the battery. ;-)

    1st thing to ask... Can you get into download mode by pressing and holding volume down, power and home simultaneously?

    He could have said, "I'm not a noob, I've bricked 10 of them already!"

    Your phone is toast. You can:
    1. Use it for a door stop.
    2. Use it as a paperweight.
    3. Give it to your child as a toy.

    Even if you were able to get it into download mode, it is highly doubtful that the radio would ever work right.

    I believe you can try sending ur phone to this company, MobileTechVideos, they claim to fix all types if Galaxy S3. They use the jtag device to revive your phone again. There are many videos on YouTube and on Google. If you decide to do it, let me know if it worked for you.

    Hi,

    I bricked my i747 S3 phone by burning a wrong ROM (the one that is made for i9300). Now the phone does not turn on (black screen), cannot enter download/recovery mode either. Just dead. Connecting it to charger has no effect. Anything can be done?
    thanks,

    thanks,
    You guys are way to careless. This phone is almost impossible to brick. About the only way to do it is by flashing something not made for your phone.

    Yes, there is a way you may be able to fix it. But first I have to ask why you thought it OK to flash something not made for your phone?

    BTW... I said may... I solo get a hold of a guy I know. Perhaps he can do something for it.

    Skunk, I need hel. I think I also just bricked my phone. Everything was good , had wicked beta and wanted to get the 1.1 but thought I'd go back to unroot and see if I could get jellybean 4.1.2 that's where it all went wrong. started by re rooting and went back to ics somehow. finally updated to jb. went root and upgrade to wicked and for some reason i went back to ics. don't know how. went back to stock then came across samsung gs3 Qcom toolkit and decided that it looked like a all in one package and it be more easy i guess. folowed directions on video and locked in the middle of flash. now phone wont boot, I hear a new boot sound in the background but no screen. pretty much deat. I can go into recovery mode and tried to factory reset but that didn't work. have old backups, but honestly, i have bounced around so much freaking out. I don't know where they are or how to access them.

    Which recovery do to have right now? Boot into recovery and tell me what you have.

    Relax... You aren't bricked.

    i dont know what recovery it is. just the standard 3 button method is what i am using. i have
    reboot system now
    apply update from adb
    apply update from external storage
    wipe data/ factory reset/wipe cache partition
    apply update from cache

    that's it

    I also wanted to add I the phone is not connecting to my computer now, not sure it it cant recognize it because its stuck in a boot process or something else.

    You are unrooted with stock recovery and your phone won't boot. The first thing would be to get stock jb back into your phone. Since you will be flashing a full image tar you will check auto reboot. This will restore your phone to factory condition. You will have to root out after this is done.

    Here is the Official tar file Un-Rooted and will become the official return to stock file. This will factory reset your device. This is also flashed in desktop Odin and will NOT add to your flash count.Download unzip and flash to your phone using Odin.

    Official JellyBean LJ7 Return to stock/Update to JellyBean tar
    Please thank sextape for his valuable contribution.

    [Guide] HOW TO FLASH IN ODIN 3.07

    Note: Flashing the PreRooted tar will not install install custom recovery. So after the phone reboots, go back into download mode and flash custom recovery in odin or you can flash it in mobile odin from your phone. Mobile Odin is available in the play store.

    You can download CWM Recovery 6.0.1.2 HERE

    no it won't. I am thinking of deleting the drivers and trying to redownload them, but I didn't want to do that until I talked to you about it.
