    hey all just flashed a new ROM onto my girlfriends Verizon S3 it successfully installed everything seemed normal. But when I rebooted the system the phone just shut off and now I can't get the phone to turn on or even go into recovery. Any tips or help would be greatly appreciated.

    By new Rom, I'm assuming there was a Rom on it prior? Was it a touchwiz based Rom, or a "vanilla android" Rom? Switching between the two can be problematic if you don't flash a kernel along with the Rom. Trying to find out a reason for why this would have happened.

    Does a computer recognize the device?

    Yes it has been rooted for a few no the now and I have flashed different ROMs with no problem. I just flashed slimbean on the other night with no issues just tried flashing android revolution. Not sure if they are touchwiz or vanilla and I did not flash a kernel. I'm actually at work right now and don't have a computer at hand to try

    Many times the boot.img is included in the zip file for the Rom. But sometimes it needs to be flashed separately, most noticeably when switching between two different types of Roms.

    When you get home, I suggest seeing if a computer can recognize the device.

    Will do thanks. If by chance the computer doesn't recognize the phone does that mean I screwed the phone?

    For a couple of bucks, you should buy a USB JIG. You plug it into the phone, and it automatically puts the phone into "recovery mode". From there, you can do anything to fix the phone. Good luck.

    What ROM did you flash? (Post a link.) Not all S3 ROMs will work on all S3s. If you have a Verizon phone, you can only safely flash a ROM built specifically for the Verizon version of the S3. If you flashed a ROM meant for the international version of the phone you have hard bricked your phone. Not even Odin or a "Jig" will recover it for you. If you flashed a version meant for a different US carrier version, you might be able to recover by loading the stock ROM through Odin or with a USB jig.

    If you can't boot into recovery or download mode, you're pretty much hosed. This person can probably fix it for you, for a fee: JTAG Unbrick Service Bricked my Phone

    http://android-revolution-hd.blogspo...-site-var.html this is a link to the site where I downloaded the ROM from its the android revolution ROM. I plugged the phone into the computer and my laptop downloaded and installed the device drivers but that's as far as it has gone

    If you flashed the international version, then meyerweb is correct. You're pretty much hard bricked. Good luck.

    Jaseem, this is a forum for the Samsung Galaxy S3. I doubt you'll find much expertise on an LG phone here. Try asking again in an LG forum.
