GT-I9300 boot loop
So here is the issue a friend asked me to fix her phone an S3 GT-I9300 being a geek i thought i would give it a shot but unlike PC's and Laptops phones are not my forte, here is what i have done so far
The phone wouldn't boot in to download mode it just freezes on the boot screen.
i got a USB Jig to get it in to download mode.
Using firmware from sams mobile I tried to reload it (sorry probably the wrong vernacular) in odin but i get this error
<ID:0/010> NAND Write Start!!
I looked in to the error on Google and the solution seemed to be re-partitioning with a pit file, i have tried using these pit files
but i get this error
<ID:0/011> Odin v.3 engine (ID:11)..
<ID:0/011> File analysis..
<ID:0/011> Set PIT file..
<ID:0/011> DO NOT TURN OFF TARGET!!
<ID:0/011> Re-Partition operation failed.
<OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 1)
I have tried
The original cable for the S3 the cable I have used to root my S4
running odin 3.09 3.07 in admin mode
i have also tried different USB ports
I have read that at this point if the phone wont respond it needs a motherboard replacement, i am hoping that i have just gone wrong some where, does anyone have any ideas?
thanks for reading
