TWRP 2.3.1 "auto update" on my S3 ----- now it won't boot
Ok, start off by admitting I'm a technophobe.I hardly know how to adjust the volume on my phone, so I haven't intentionally changed anything.
That being said, the S3 while slick and fast initially has had the most "personality problems" of any phone I've had. This is my 3rd or 4th droid, and I like the platform in general.
So, onto the actual problem.
I had a local tech shop replace my glass, and do a factory reset of things after a girl at work dragged it off the desk onto the tile floor.
So $100 later, the phone is clean, clear and seems to be running faster and lasting longer on a single charge.
Until this evening.....
It "automatically" downloaded some TWRP thing that seems to have taken it over.
It downloaded, said it had to reboot, and then did reboot.
It came up with that screen in the link, saying it was version 2.3.1
I could not find a way to dismiss it or get to my home screen. Eventually, I hit "restore defaults" and "reboot".
Now it will flash "SAMSUNG" for about half a second, and then go to the "SAMSUNG GALAXY S3" screen and stay there. It does not finish booting, it does not function.
- I have tried removing the battery
- I have tried rebooting with the sim and SD removed.

We can try two things. We can attempt to find a custom rom which is only flashable through twrp may as well use what you have… or when I get back home I'll pull up the laptop and see if I can't locate stock firmware for you to flash.
