    First of all the details:
    Phone: Samsung Galaxy S3 Gt-i9300
    Software: Android 4.1.2 Touchwiz

    I was trying tot flash a custom ROM (cyanogenmod 10.1) using goomanager. I did everything right but my Phone got stuck in a boot loop. It wants to start the recovery mode( the "loading screen" from twrp pops up), but before it starts, it reboots itself, so i cant get into recovery mode. Does this mean that the open recovery script is corrupt? And is it possible to install cwm instead of twrp?I can get into Odin mode.
    Is there anything i can do to restore my phone?

    Did you try starting the phone into recovery mode manually. Its home+volume down+power.

    Yes i tried, but the thing is, if i just hold the power button to start the device it automaticly tries tot go into recovery mode. Is there a way to stop that?

    You want to device to get into recovery. Once in recovery you need to factory reset, wipe data and cache then reboot. It should work if the ROM flashed successfully through ROM Manager.

    I can't get into recovery in any way. And it actually never flashed a custom ROM. Because i was trying to do that, but the phone couldnt boot into recovery in any way. When it tries to boot into recovery, it reboots itself and it cant get passed the loading screen from twrp.

    Alright well I would recommend a factory reset. Just Google how to factory reset galaxy s3 with Odin.
