Default [Q] S3 I9300 International bricked - Need help

Hi Guys, I've been going through these forums for days and have tried so many things, but I still can't un-brick this phone, I'm pretty sure its a soft brick, because I can still get into download mode, but if I try to start the phone normally, I just get a white screen now when I enter download mode, it says "downloading do not turn off target" now when I plug it into the pc, odin sees it ok, but I have tried uploading new stock firmware, its my friends phone, and as far as I know its not rooted, now when I tried flashing a new stock firmware, it failed becase of something to do with the partition, so I read through these forums and found a thread about uploading a new pit file, which I did, and that failed as well, so I need hepl please guys, how screwed is this phone?? its an international Galaxy S3 i9300 on O2

Go try the rescue firmware (search in general forum) but probable that the emmc is corrupt/damaged. If the rescue firmware won't flash then you'll need a new motherboard.

Right Boomboomer, I have tried the recovery firmwares, there were two of them and I tried them both, but it just fails at the pit file and says it cant format the partition, is this the end? or is there anything else I can try?

Sounds like the emmc chip is damaged.

If you can get a z3x box there is a thread which describes how to resurrect a corrupt chip:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/gala...-dead-t2647558

But even that won't help a dead emmc chip.
