Question [Q] Softbricked! Stuck in Odin Mode.

Phone Info: AT&T Galaxy S3, Cyanogenmod 10.2

So, I was messing around, trying to get the WiFi to work on my phone when I tried a solution I found on the forums: updating one of the files involving the radio. After flashing the file, my phone shut off and opened in Download mode. Now I can't leave download mode, can't enter recovery mode, and can't boot my phone. Oh, and my computer can't recognize the phone either. I've searched for hours looking for a solution and I'm freaking out. I seriously need some help with this.

Basically it says:

Could not do normal mode
Odin Mode
Phone Model, etc.

I really don't care how its done, what ROM I end up with, or anything else. I just need this phone to be able to work properly again. Thanks for any help!

That's sudden death syndrome right? Is there any good fix for it or way to get it replaced despite it being rooted and the ROM changed? (I did know that going into rooting might cause problems like this, just hopeful that there's a way)

Edit: If there's a way to get the phone to be recognized by a computer; I can still access download mode and would have no problem doing a full restore from there. I've tried installing drivers for the phone, it seems like the phone is unable to be recognized by any computer I try also.

Finally did get Recovery Mode to work. Don't know if that can help much

SDS is when the phone is completely dead, doesn't boot at all.

You are posting in the wrong forum, this is for the i9300 only.

If you've flashed a file meant for another phone then you have probably hard bricked it.

If download mode doesn't connect to pc then you need a repair centre.

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

Solved the issue! So I managed to load my original ROM file onto my external SD and install it from recovery. For anyone else who has this problem, I just loaded the zip file onto the SD, stuck it in my phone, powered off and clicked Volume Up Home and Power to get into recovery, (phone specific for Gs3 on getting to recovery) and went to install from zip and installed the file. Problem solved for me, although it did wipe all the data which isnt a big deal really. Phew. That was a scare. And it fixed my WiFi problem, so all in all a good learning experience for me

Anyhow, thanks for all the help, I appreciate it! And sorry for hitting up the wrong forum, its my first time on it.

Thanks again!
