I have tried 5 different cords, and two different computers on all usb ports. Nothing

You said it'll boot recovery, is it stock or a custom one? Also, are you familiar with ADB?

When you plug it into the computer, is it detected by odin? If so, what does it say in the message box when you try to flash?
Look in device manager too. What does it detect the device as?

I know the jig works because I tested it on my wife sgh-i747m and also on my infuse. Both of which boot into download mode immediately. My concern is there is something wrong with the main board because it really doesn't seem like it was rooted at all.

I am just going to see what I can get for it at this point, I paid 70 so would be looking to get at least 60

Hi,

Send me a message of you want to sell your s3.

Cheers.

I have an SGH-i747m and I'm having the same problem. Was a solution ever found?

You have the Canadian version of the s3? Will you phone boot into download mode without the sd card installed?

Sorry, I have the SGH-i747. The phone only boots with the SD card and just stays in download mode. Odin doesn't recognize it.

What was the last stock ATT ROM on the phone? Can the phone boot into download mode without the external SD card?

When you connect the phone to you computer in download mode, are you prompted to install drivers? If you are using Windows, any unrecognized devices in device manager?

And don't forget to try different cables and every USB port on the computer. Cables go bad much more easily than most people think, and many charging cables cannot be used for data transfer.
I've seen a number of times where people found that only one of the USB ports would allow it to connect.
You might also want to try several different driver versions. (I'd start with the oldest that was release along with the S3.) You can find several in the link in my signature.
