I can't boot into recovery or download mode, I have no charging screen, just a red LED. I bought a USB jig cause I saw someone revive a hardbricked S3 with it, but I can't manage to get it to work..I might just not be using it right though. Is there no chance of revival? I was trying to update from 4.1 to 4.2 when the phone just shut off, then it wouldn't turn back on.

this might a problem because of battery (did you tried to flash with lower than 40% battery? )

And i hope you flashed the correct version of i9300 .

Remove your phone battery ,put battery on ,insert the usb jig and should prompt you directly to download mode , if not ,then you need a new motherboard
