Hi, have a i9300. When my phone starts up i got the samsung logo, it plays the samsung boot sound, but cuts it half way, and remains like that endlessly, flashing but never booting up.

I tried Flashing the partition, and also the firmware but it didnt work. Any ideas i could use?

Thanks in advance

....I also get E faile tto mount efs in recovery mode. ... Don't know what that is...

Sounds like a hard brick, try flashing the rescue firmware from general forum but doubt you will be able to fix it yourself.

This only happened after the charge fell to 0 last night. It started rebooting over and over... then it got stuck on the boot logo. I didn't really do anything to brick it. Fine it was rooted, but I dont see how it just happends like this, suddenly

The emmc chip in these phones is very fragile, letting the battery drain completely may have corrupted the firmware -which is easily solved by factory reset or flashing the same firmware.

Flashing a pit file is last resort, not the first thing to try.

It wasn't the first thing to try... I did many factory resets, and also re-flshing firmware. I tried pit flash but still the same result.

I now installed CheckRom via Odin, it boots, but icannot connect to my carrier..

Anything i can do from this rom... I cannot even flash CWM to attempt to install a different ROM with it for some reason
