Default Stuck at Samsung splash screen.

Hi,

I recently tried installing the new 4.3 update onto my Samsung Galaxy S3 I747. Also, I never rooted my phone and my carrier is Telus if that matters.

When my phone finished updating, it lead to the lock screen. Just as I was about to enter my pin and unlock it, the phone restarts and gets stuck on the Samsung splash screen. I have tried entering into recovery mode and then wiping the cache and restarting it, but no luck.

I do not wish to restore my phone back to factory settings because I do not want to lose my music and apps. Is there a solution that can fix it without wiping the memory?

Thanks.

edit: i left it charging for a few minutes while it was stuck on the samsung splash screen, and then it went to the lockscreen and restarted it self

... i have to wait five minutes before i can save my edit

editedit: it just went to lockscreen for a second again

editeditedit: its going back to lockscreen quite often and restarting it self

Wrong forum, anything you flash from here may (have already) brick your phone.

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

Sorry I'll repost this to the correct section. And what do you mean as in anything I flash from here may brick my phone, as in going into recovery mode to wipe cache and rebooting device?

The firmware for a wrong phone or any mods may brick your phone .

Would it be my carrier's fault since they're the one who provided it the update?
