Hello,

Unfortunately I've had some huge issues with the galaxy s3.
First my ROM stopped working properly and was rebooting every 2 secs after I open it.
I couldn't format /sdcard because that caused a reboot to and everything of my data was in the path "/0/" which was very weird.
So I could not get any rom to install on the phone anymore in CWM, this looked like it was thanks too the way it was first flashed.
So I tried flashing others, I tried flashing with another kernel, still couldn't get it working.
So I tried flashing with ODIN, no different result.
Then from here I tried re-partitioning.. Unfortunately this brought to where I am at the moment which is, I can get in the download recovery I can get the screen Samsung Galaxy S3 gt-i9300, but I can NOT get into the CWM of siyah kernel I just flashed with odin..
Anyone any suggestions?
Really want to fix this...

kind regards,

Jorricks

Sounds like your emmc chip has corrupted, if flashing a full stock rom or the rescue firmware (see general forum) doesn't help then you'll need a new motherboard.

Oke, so I tried some more, I got CWM up and running, I flashed a ROM and at a certain moment the ROM flashing stopped and rebooted and now I can't enter CWM recovery and it doesn't load the ROM neither.
Now when I try to flash CWM or Siyah again it says There is no PIT partition.
Any idea or is this one really broken?

MAIN QUESTION: Where can I get the .pit file for the vodafone the netherlands version?
(normal i9300)

It's means that your phone suffered from sudden death syndrome but to be 100% sure about it, go into download mode and check if your product name is empty or not (if empty you can be 100% sure that it's SDS and you need motherboard replacement)

Hmmm thanks for the reply!
It is indeed completely blank
What I can read
Code:
DOIN MODE
PRODUCT NAME:
CUSTOM BINARY DOWNLOAD: No
CURRENT BINARY: Samsung Official
SYSTEM STATUS: Custom
So really the only thing I can do is send it back to samsung?
Is there anything that could have caused a sudden death syndrome or is it completely not my fault

Yes, send it back to Samsung.
And it's definitely not your fault,it's Samsung's fault.
