Default S3 Does not boot after using odin + syriah. HELP!

Phone noob need help completely restoring Samsung Galaxy S3. I downloaded a custom kernal called syriah which bricked my phone and now the phone does not boot. The carrier is ATT and I live in America. I have downloaded the default firmware and followed several guides and Ive had no luck. Any would would be appreciated. The phone does not boot. When i attempt to boot it, only shows the samsung logo for a brief second and the then screen turns black.

It appears like you have downloaded a kernel compiled for the International Samsung version (i9300) while your phone is an American version.

If you have a custom recovery installed, then take out your sd-card from the phone, and copy a ROM into it via desktop/laptop. Put the sd-card back into the phone and boot into recovery mode. Install the ROM from the folder in the sd-card.

Indeed, as you been trying out, you could install it via Odin without using a sd-card. Since I always have a sd-card with me, that was the 1st approach which came to mind.

Be careful to ensure that Kies does not come up while using Odin.

Firstly, ensure that the device type for the ROM matches your actual device type. The boot screen should show your device type. My boot screen says "Samsung GT-I9300" on booting up, so I know my device type is International S3 (I9300).

Whether Odin is usable depends on the extension of the file. If it ends in ".tar" or ".md5", you should be able to install it via Odin as PDA. If it ends in ".zip", it's probably meant for installation via a custom recovery.

Do not meddle with the PIT. It's a system managed file for the partition information and you'll want to change the partition data in very rare scenarios.
