Re: Really Need Help
The first is follow the instruction in the link that you gave me in post #60. That is not the latest version, but if that gets you to the phone, you can OTA to the most recent.
Next (and your phone is not hosed, it still gets to the boot screen, there is just something I am missing or that is hosed internally) send Skunkape a message and ask him for some advice. He wrote that guide you were following and he knows the ATT version very well. I am sure he can get you straight. I already told him to check into this thread so I imagine he will come by with some wisdom sometime tomorrow.
While you are waiting, I would call att tech support and tell them this: hey, I woke up this morning and my phone was turned off. I turned it back on and it is stuck in a bootloop on the samsung splash screen. I do not know what went wrong, it just shut off. (then will then ask you to get into recovery) You tell them it will not go into recovery. it just goes back to the splash screen.
9 times out of 10, it will end there and they will send you out another unit that is stock. It will be a refurb, but you bought this one used so no big deal. The sgs3 is still covered under the manufacturers warranty so there is no issue there. I am not sure how ATT works, but verizon doesnt try to do anything else after "factory reset", which you cannot do. Usually they overnight it, then you send back the damaged unit.
I am sorry but I am at a loss right now, and I have to get up in 2.5 hours for work. I wish I could see it the rest of the way through for you. I jsut do not know what is going wrong. I have gone from Liquidsmooth to stock and back again without an issue, and just by using odin and the stock image.
I will read up in the liquidsmooth thread to see if there is something there, but it will have to wait until my lunch break.
Any which way you go, please keep me up to date. I will be back on here at 10PM EST so if I come up with anything I will let you know, or if you want to give it another go.
Remember, the phone is not dead, just disabled....it will work again I am sure of that....
