    So, my S3 started to freeze randomly so I would take the battery out and reboot it until it wouldn't boot past the initial s3 GT-I9300 screen (not the blue samsung splash screen) I tried to go into recovery mode, but it would go back to the screen. after a couple of times of me taking the battery out and rebooting, it asked me to do a factory reset...me being the ***** I am, I once again took the battery out etc...so I tried to do a firmware upgrade and initialization, but samsung kies does not detect my device ( my computer doesnt detect my device either, but it still installs the drivers and it doesnt charge) so can anybody PLEASE help me out? Or has my phone been destroyed?

    Is there anyway to go into recovery mode? In the process of recover files from Samsung?
    Did you try the link just above your post? And what do you mean by "In the process of recover files"?

    I have same problem. Upgraded to whatever was pushed to my phone and now cannot get into recovery mode. Please help! I already went to Tmobile store (could not do anything), Samsung Experience Team @ Best Buy (useless for this type of a problem).

    Welcome to the forums!

    Your only problem is that you can't boot into Recovery mode? Or your problem is that your phone isn't booting normally and you're trying to get into Recovery mode and that's not working either?

    Will the phone boot into Download mode?

    Welcome to the forums!

    You could take it into your local carrier shop and they should fix it for you, since it happened as a result of the OTA.

    Or you could use a tool called Odin (just Google it - look for v3.07) and manually load the firmware, which can be found here - select your device in the drop-down list in the upper left corner, then mouse-over the region codes (this is much easier to do on a computer) and find your region/carrier and download the latest version.

    You can find instructions on how to use Odin in any of the rooting sub-forums or come back here when you're ready.

    Hello Folks,

    I am facing similar issue. I received an update to Android 4.3 about 2 weeks ago and since my phone is behaving weird. Most of the times, it goes into dead-lock mode displaying Samsung S3 GT - i9300 screen. On occasions, it does boot OK but not for too long.

    Unfortunately, I cannot take my phone to Samsung as it is out of warranty. I tried pressing "power+volume down and home screen" button, it displays the warning message where in I can either press Volume Up to proceed or Volume down to cancel - in both of the options, phone again goes back into dead-lock flashing the samsung s3 gt logo.

    Any help is appreciated!
