    Can't boot or access recovery mode.

    After the phone had a problem, I rebooted it. Result: "normal" reboot loop.
    Entering recovery mode and performing a factory reset + cleaning cache didn't solve the probelm.

    So I downloaded I9300XXUGOL2_I9300DTMGOC1_I9300BOUGNB1_HOME.tar.md5 put it on a memorycard, entered ecovery mode to flash it.
    flash started, something failed mounting.

    Now its rebooting to recovery mode in LOOP.

    Can't post a link to the pic it says:
    ---
    E: failed to mount /system (Invaild argument)
    can't mount '/system' (Invaild argument)

    # MANUEL MODE'
    -- Appling Multi-CSC...
    E: failed to mount /system (Invaild argument)
    can't mount '/system' (Invaild argument)
    E: failed to mount /system (Invaild argument)

    any ideas or just bricked?

    You need to flash that device, with the correct firmware using Odin or try Emergency Firmware recovery in Kies

    -> that requires to get into recovery mode with power+up+home button.

    Can't access recovery mode. Phone is not building up an USB-Connection without.

    Or is there any other way?

    This works to start a recovery with kies / odin:
    power+down+home = download modus

    Update:
    Firmware is flashed now. S3 works again.

    THX to all!
