Default [Q] Continuous boot, assert failed troubles (Help)



So I posted a help thing about EFS a while back and didnt get to much help with that but i managed to figure things out. Now however
ive got myself into another predicament i cant seem to get out of.

So, from the start, i have a galaxy s3 (GT i-9305T) it was rooted, i still had the stock rom, but was running the beoffla kernal.
The idea was to download and install "JustArchi I9300XXUGML2 stock, deodexed and all the rest" then start finding
some nice themes. Ive got philz_touch_6.07.9-i9305.tar installed for my recovery.

This is where the trouble starts...


So first off i wipe the cache and the davik cache, go to install the rom then i get this: (ill go from installing update)

assert failed: write_raw_image (" /tmp/boot.img" , " /dev/block/mmcblk0p5" )
E: Error in /storage/sdcard1/Just archi........zip
(Status 7)
Installation aborted


Now i looked up a whole heap of pages to see if i could sort it out myself and i tried a few different things,
none of which have prevailed. First i tried to reflash an insecure boot image then try again, nup. I tried to
flash back to stock recovery and re format (No errors) then back to custom. Mounted /data and /system
and re formatted which worked with no error, still same error when flashing rom though. Also tried flashing
with different custom recovery, no luck there either.

There were a few other things i tried but i cant really remember what i did because
this has been a problem for a while now. Some of the pages i looked over for
information were:

http://www.droidforums.net/forum/and...-boot-img.html
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1045887

And this is the one im on at the moment, im currently downloading a stock rom from sammobile to try flash.

http://forum.xda-developers.com/gala...nable-t2406422

"UPDATE"
Finished downloading the stock rom, tried to install with philz recovery and got this:

Installing: /storage/sdcard1/I9305TDVBME2_I9305TTELBME1_TEL (STOCK).zip
Finding update package...
Opening update package....
Installing update...
Installation aborted.


And thats it, no kind of specific error codes or anything.


Thanks in advance to anyone who can help me out,
really stuck on this one.

or at least a place for me to start learning myself...

Hi.

If you downloaded the stock ROM from sammy mobile are these not meant to be installed via Odin?

There are a few post if you search for some of the pre rooted stock ROMs that you can flash with odin.

I would start from there.

The roms i downloaded from samsmobile were in .zip files, which im pretty
sure has to be flashed with one of the custom recoveries.
Thanks though

at first seems you tried to flash rom designed for i9300

then, you downloaded an ODIN image and you have to flash it by ODIN, no way you'd flash it over any recovery
to be more specific:
unzip the file I9305TDVBME2_I9305TTELBME1_TEL (STOCK).zip you downloaded, you should get a huge file with extension of .md5 or .tar
read in the forums how to use ODIN to flash firmware
