Hi,

Yesterday I have updated my Galaxy S3 I9300 to Kitkat 4.4.2 using a custom ROM. While I wasn't satisfied with the performance of that custom ROM, I have downloaded the Stock 4.3 firmware and tried to downgrade it using ODIN.

All went smoothly till my S3 stuck on Samsung Logo while rebooting with 4.3 installed. It does nothing now except stuck on the Samsung Logo.

I am afraid that I did brick my phone.

Any help will be highly appreciated as I need my phone back to work urgently

Thanks...

Yes you can.

If you flashed with Odin, you will now have stock recovery. Boot into it by using power+home+volume up. And choose 'wipe data/factory reset' from the menu.

This WILL wipe your internal storage too, but since your phone isn't booting there isn't much you can do about that.
