Hi

A friend of mine owns a Galaxy S3 and is having the following problem
The phone seems not booting, and a white screen with black lines appear.

We've thought about getting a new screen housing complete, with digitizer, screen, etc. but I'm not sure if this will solve the problem.

How could I do some testing so I can know which is the problem and how could I do a complete wipe to the phone as it is now, if possible?



Thanks

My friend could get into download mode. He tried to flash another roms, but the 1st time he got an error, and the second try he waited more than 20min without any progress...

Is there any way to make a complete wipe from download mode?

No. That white screen is the sign of the complete eMMC failure a.k.a SDS. Nothing you can do about it but have it repaired by Samsung either by warranty of by paying for the service.
