Question [Q] Can Flash PIT, Cannot Flash Anything Else

I9300 International (EU)

I can flash .pit files, in my case the GT-I9300_mx_20120220.pit for the 16 GB variant (passes in various ODIN versions). However, when I start flashing a kernel, firmware or recovery ODIN 1.03, 1.83, 1.85, 3.04, 3.07, 3.09 get stuck at NAND Write Start!!

I can't get into recovery, previously had TWRP 2.7.0.0.

I've tried flashing: stock firmware for my phone, Siyah, CM 11 M5 Snapshot (which previously worked)

Any and all ideas welcome! PLEASE HELP!

Nand write start failure usually means you need a new motherboard suggest service repair but try this first >> http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...35&postcount=6 << but it may not flash.

(1) First rule of flashing roms BACK UP YOU EFS!!
(2) 2nd Rule of flashing roms SEE 1ST RULE!!

(3) EFS Issue look here >> http://forum.xda-developers.com/gala...uding-t2393289
(4) Rescue Firmware look here >> http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...35&postcount=6

Recovery flashed, device rooted, CM 11 M5 flashed.

Stuck at Samsung logo with a little red exclamation mark in the upper left corner (appeared when it worked, too).
