I got here a bricked i9300.
It freezes on Samsung logo.
I cant open recovery, but it does enter download mode.
First thing I tried was flashing stock firmware via Odin: I got "There is no PIT partition"
So I closed Odin and reopened it and tried flashing the PIT file.
It froze on SetupConnection.
I shut off the phone and entered download mode again and tried to flash the PIT.
Now it froze on Get PIT for mapping..
I closed Odin and reopened it... Froze on SetupConection.
Shut of the phone... Download mode... Odin...
I set the PIT and marked Nand Erase All
<ID:0/007> Complete(Write) operation failed.
<OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 1)
Every time I try to do something via Odin the phone seems to freeze and wont pass trough SetupConnection anymore.
If I restart it to download mode, it will try to do something but I get those errors.
If I shut it down and put it to charge, it will take longer than usual to show the static battery icon (the one with a circle), and wont pass trough it. It will freeze there.
I also tried the Kies tool where you put Model and S/N, it finds the phone, I accept the terms and then get a message that "this version cannot be updated".
WHat the hell can I do? Is this motherboard gone for good?
