[Q] (ODIN) Galaxy S3 Soft Brick (Cant Open Serial(com) Port)
So a friend of mine managed to soft brick his S3 (i9300) , by pulling the battery while flashing something with odin, he's given it me having had some prior experience with S3's and rooting in general.
When trying to boot the S3 I get a screen like this :
Now this isn't really a problem because I can still get into download mode , (
Product name : //blank
Current Binary : samsung official
System Status : Custom
The problem is when I try to flash stock 4.1.2 (everything) I get this error
Can't open serial COM port.
I'm using drivers downloaded from here : http://forum.xda-developers.com/gala...obile-t1655286
And I'm using these files in Odin ( 4.1.2) : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...35&postcount=6
I've tried this on two separate computers , on all available usb ports and swapped out the cable , taken the sim and memory card out, and tried several different versions of odin, all to no avail.
Any help would be appreciated on fixing the device.
