[Q] [Help Needed] Galaxy S3 GT-I9300 Massive problem
I would need some help with my Galaxy S3 GT-I9300
From the top, i had it rooted a few days ago with the HD Revolution 21.0 installed, i upgraded to the 40.0 version (which was JB 4.3) and then everything went to ****.
My battery was draining, my cell was crashing from time to time and in short i tried to fix it.
First i tried to downgrade to the HD Revolution 32.0 which has the JB 4.1.2 (if i remember correctly)
When i did that, my IMEI went to 0049*** and was unable to go onto the internet nor call anyone.
this made me panic, because (yes you can call me an idiot) i didnt do a backup of my IMEI or stock EFS.
I tried to do a restore of my EFS but it didnt work for some reason (i had a backup through Aroma that came with HD Revolution and i had no way for it to be read again and restored)
I still have all my EFS Backups, but dont know how to get the phone to read em (they are .tar.gz)
This brought me to the "solution" of going back to Stock ROM and factory reset/wipe it.
So i flashed a swedish version (seeing as i am from sweden) and currently im on STOCK ROM JB 4.1.2, my IMEI is still 0049***, i cant connect to the internet nor make calls.
I cant go into Recovery because when i do, the "SAMSUNG GALAXY SIII" screen shows with a tiny red "!
" shows up in the corner.
Im able to go into Download mode.
Ive tried to re-root it by following this guide: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2046439
But when i try to follow "Step 2 - Flashing VRALEC Bootchain to allow Custom Recovery" Odin 3.07 gets stuck at "Starting NAND Write!!" and will not continue.
As the idiot i am i tried to flash CWM directly instead, with no success.
My question now is, What do i do?!
Ive tried anything i can think of, is there anything else i can do?
