OK. As far as I know.... This is so far the Only method to UNBRICK Galaxy S3.

1. Purchase a USB Jig Dongle For Samsung Galaxy S III S3 GT-I9300 Download Mode unbrick

2.This USB jig can only bring your phones into Download Mode. It CANNOT reset your phone binary counter and remove yellow triangle..

3.Usage:
1. Turn off your phone and pull out the battery for about 10-15 seconds.
2. Just put the battery back and don’t turn it on.
3. Plug the USB Jig into the micro USB port on the phone.
4. After about 2-3 seconds, you can see the yellow download mode logo on the screen.
5. Unplug the USB Jig.
6. Connect your phone with USB cable to computer and then flash your phone via the program “odin"

It does not work with latest European Version 2.34, you have to return your device to old version to use.

Software bricking is nearly impossible, if getting bootloops or only booting into recovery there is in most cases the way about using odin to flash back to stock
And there is already a thread about changing a broken screen, use the search

Might be good to note that the jig method will only work on a softbrick.

Hardbricked phones need either a replacement or a JTAG treatment.

Actually, with the gs3 all you need is a 16gb class 10 sd card with a debrick.img.... the usb jig makes it easier so you dont have to press all the buttons or hook it up to the computer to get to DL mode... check out my last post on the unbrick your sprint gs3 thread...
