[Q] S3 bricked? need some help
well it eventually had to happen someday. Well i will try to explain what exactly happenend.
I had the Sensation 5 Rom on my device. which means i was on 4.4.2 the CWM recovery is 188.8.131.52
yesterday i decided to flash back to the Revolution HD Rom which is 4.3 if im not mistaken... i didnt change the cwm recovery.
There were no problems while flashing and the Revolution HD Rom was working fine until today when i decided to boot into recovery Mode.
(My hardware PowerButton is defect thats why i took it out of my phone so yeah there is no Power Button on my S3)
Because i cant use the 3 button combo to get into Recovery i used the App quick boot and used the App to boot into Recovery mode.
Now from there on my Problem begins. The Samsung Logo appears then the phone boots into Recovery but only for roughly 1 second.
The only thing i can see is the circle with a hat in the middle (the logo) and the cwm version on the bottom before the phone shuts down and everything starts again...its kind of a bootloop only going into recovery mode for 1 second and then starting a new.
Which mena si CANT use recovery Mode and i ALSO cant get into Download Mode somehow... ive tried holding the Volume down button and Home button and everything but i cant get the phone into download Mode so yeah phone is stuck in that Bootloop which i explained above.
Do u guys think that a Usb Jig from Amazon would actually work getting the Phone into Download Mode? or is it a lost cause and i should start looking for a new phone? ^^
i would appreciate any answers a lot !
