****verizon gs3 hard-bricked****
Hey everybody, I am kind of new to this whole android technical stuff. I had rooted my phone with one click root no issues, very easy. Thanks to Beanstown106!
I then installed cwm custom recovery. But of course my curiosity went even further and I installed hyperdrive custom rom. I had no issues with this rom what so ever.
(I also made sure my bootloader was unlocked using ez-unlock)
Now when I flashed my phone back to factory settings using odin v.3.07 the phone worked great no problems. I enjoyed the custom feel so much I decided to go back to hyperdrive again, this time after install it went to boot then shut down. I get nothing it wont even accept a wall charger. (I did reroot too before reinstalling the custom hyperdrive)
So basically my question is this. All of you are a lot more advanced then I am in this area and I want to know your advice on this method. I ran across this link
Now he states you MUST HAVE A CLASS 10 sd card to write the debrick image.
After brainstorming and saving $20 bucks can I change the write speed enough using sd speed increase app from the play store?
Or if anyone has any other ideas out there it would be greatly appreciated. I am in no way interested in paying for jtag service. There is way to many smart folk out there like yourselves to figure out some way to fix a hard bricked phone without paying out the pocket.

I don't know how people expect to get anywhere when they can't even use the terminology correctly - the guy in that video is talking about recovering from a 'hard brick' situation yet the method totally involves 'soft brick' solutions: if the phone boots into Safe mode, Recovery mode or Download mode (whether using the custom key combinations or using a JIG) then in reality the phone is only soft bricked.
When the damn thing won't turn on under any circumstances then it's hard bricked, and if you're fortunate someone with JTAG hardware/software MAY be able to still recover it. Do a Google search if you want the full story, but basically JTAG provides power to the mainboard and tries to rewrite the flash part directly.
Edit: BTW, a JIG may be handy when the phone seems to start the boot process but you just can't seem to get into Download mode - it pretty much guarantees that if the phone still has the capability to get into Download mode then that's what'll happen.

I was completely hard bricked. I could not even get a charger to connect. It did nothing. No recovery no download mode, nothing. So I went and bought a class 10 sd card wrote the debrick image file and it powered my phone up to get to download mode. Then I went and got my stock firmware and flashed back with odin. Screw that jtag racket concerning the verizon U.S gs3 because I'm typing this using my verizon gs3 without sending my phone in and paying someone $60. This method truly does work with hard bricked verizon. Because like I said I could do absolutely nothing, zilch zero notta....
