Question [Q] I need an official firmware..

Hello,

one of my friends got her S3 stuck in a boot loop, it can go into recovery and it is detected by odin. So I thought I could just flash the official firmware and this may fix it.

I went over to sammobile but they changed something with the firmware section since the last time I was there.. I can't find older firmware.

The phone is I9300 and I am looking for the latest firmware for Egypt.

Do you guys have any idea what I should do?

Alternatively, I am trying to save the data here, do you know of any non wipe firmware? I am trying to get her phone up without losing data.

Any help is appreciated

Thanks!

Questions go in the q&a forum, report your own post and ask a moderator to move it.

If you want the latest firmware then just download it from Sammobile.com, you will have to factory reset before it will boot.

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

I have looked into the Q&A but I didnt feel my question falls in there, as Q&A is mainly about the S3.

I have looked at the threads containing a collection of official firmware but nothing related to Egypt.

I did my search before I post. I could not reach a desirable result that is why I asked.

Apart from that, thank you for your answer. I hope someone else can help me with an answer that will resolve my problem.

Thank you.

Note: funny thing about your quote, I already mentioned I looked in Sammobile and didnt find Egypt. Missed to read that?

You don't need to install an Egyptian firmware on your friends S3. You can basically install any firmware made for the GT-i9300. Doesn't matter from what country it says its from.
Phone: Samsung Galaxy S III (I9300)

I didn't miss reading that, it was irrelevant as you had missed the basics issue. Don't ignore the posting rules, they do apply to you.
