AT&T Galaxy S3: Help! Won't boot up.
Starting last night my AT&T S3 will not boot up. Holding the power button does nothing, but removing and replacing the battery starts it up for about 5 seconds, long enough to see the Samsung screen then the Samsung Galaxy S3 screen, then shuts back down. Starting it in both reboot mode and download mode it will boot up in the same manner then again shut down promptly. Plugging it into a charger changes nothing (I've tried 3 different chargers, all work with my girlfriend's Verizon S3 that had a similar problem a month or so ago, but would start and stay on about one out of every five or so tries. Please help!

Re: Help! Won't boot up.
I'm not sure what can be wrong. It can be the hardware or the software

Only recommendation I have is to try a JTAG service (ex: http://mobiletechvideos.mybigcommerc...-brick-repair/)
