Thumbs down [Q] GT-I9300 wont boot, ROM wiped

i have a samsung galaxy s3 (gt-i9300) it was running a custom ROM when i got it but i wanted it back to the original samsung software, so i wiped the phone through recovery mode from the rom as the volume buttons are broke on my phone, after wiping it my phone will now only come up with the boot screen saying 'Samsung galaxy Slll GT-I9300' with a red exclamtion mark at the top left corner, is there anyway i can fix this my self as i need my phone working

You did more than just a factory reset, if you used format then you may have bricked it.

Try flashing the stock firmware for your country from, using Odin. Follow the guide in general forum sticky thread.

Nobody searches. Nobody reads the first posts or titles of threads. Nobody even looks at posts a couple above their own.

This happened to me too. Flashing the stock firmware solved it.

Better be careful with those format next time

If your volume buttons are broken there is only one way to go to recovery to flash stock.
Buy an USB jtag from ebay.
