Hello everyone
I've got problem with my I9305 lte. I bought it from my friend. It was working fine till my friend try to root phone with software dedicated to i9300. Galaxy right now stay on logo , goes in recovery mode and download mode. In a photo you can see cause of this thread.

I tried to flash oryginal software by Odin. Everything looks fine. Odin doesn't see any error. Galaxy still stay on logo with red error in recovery mode. I don't have backup with EFS folder... If it help i9305 is from vadofone Germany.

Could anyone help me ?

Motherboard replacement....

And next time, read everything you can before you stuff around with something! Damn, the first thing I did was backup my efs folder :banghead:

So you have no backup of the efs folder, a phone that won't boot properly, and you obviously didn't read your link properly either.

Good luck, enjoy buying a new phone

Could you post a fix mate on how you sorted your problem? I have an S3 with the same issue - failed to mount efs. I have a back up of my efs folder on my PC.

I should begin with explaining my problem first.

The phone would not boot,charge or show any signs of life.

I had another S3, so i swapped the battery over and to my surprise it came on.
Luckily i could boot into download mode.

Moving onto how i sorted it.

First i went here

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...06&postcount=1

and downloaded, extracted and flashed the Param_Bin_I9305.zip .

I then went here

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2023527

and flashed all 3 sections (phone/pda/csc)

and hey presto all was sorted.


Hope this helps and if i can be of any more help or i have omitted something please ask

Thanks for the quick reply mate. Will this work on my International GTi9300 do you know? Sorry I should have said that earlier. I've had all previous versions of the Galaxy models and never got a problem like this.

One guy above says a new motherboard is the only option, I left mine in for repair and because the custom binary was at 2 the warranty was Void. So they quoted me 150 just today. I can't afford that at the moment. But after so many searches here on XDA, it seems some people with the same issue as myself have managed to fix it. Thats why i am a bit sceptical, because I have my EFS folder backed up. Maybe it might work.

I should have my phone back on Monday so if you think this will work on mine I will give it a go and let you know?

Really appreciate the help.
