    Default System Software not Authorized - Secure Fail: Kernel

    UPDATE:

    At this point I would just like to get the S3 to stock firmware; work like a brand new out of box phone..

    I believe I have it unbricked using a .pit file.
    However I cannot boot or install an official ROM..

    I get this..
    E: failed to mount /system (invalid argument) can't mount '/system' (Invalid Argument)
    Also when flashing the official rom I get this

    <ID:0/005> aboot.mbn
    <ID:0/005> FAIL! (Auth)
    <OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 1)
    In addition when loading the phone it says samsung custom if that helps anyone.
    Now I cannot even load into recovery.. Only download mode because system software isn't authorized.. Secure Fail: Kernel..

    HELP!

    Default Re: Odin Fail while writing new firmware. Cannot get ROM Loaded.

    I'd suggest that you take it in to the nearest Best Buy - they should have a similar Samsung Centre that will be able to help you.

    Will they have any issues with a system like mine?
    Even if it has had some firmwares installed?

    They'll fix my phone?

    Even if it says system software not auth?

    I dont want to waste a trip..

    If it's a brand new phone it should still be in warranty, so they should have no problem working on it.

    At worst, take it in to a local Verizon company store and they should be able to help you.

    I'm afraid that you screwed up the bootloader flashing those out-of-date boot chains, but what do I know - it's beyond anything I can help you with.
