And I AM able to get to the download mode screen:
I've tried to flash a Stock Rooted Firmware onto the phone using Odin 3.07, and all it does is say it failed.
Another thing to note is that I CAN'T boot into recovery, and that I do not have Clockworkmod installed.
Also, I am not sure if my device is rooted as it was given to me by someone else..
Any help on trying to solve this issue will be much appreciated!! Thank you! ��
EDIT: if you can't see the images for some reason, it is just a photo of the "Firmware Upgrade Encountered an Issue" screen and a photo of the download mode screen.

well for one your s3 is from T-mobile so you can't really download Odin flashable roms from here on the Sprint S3 forum the only help i can give is go to the T-mobile s3 forum and it sounds like you might have a bad cable try with another one or a different PC
