Currently, I'm unable to enter download or recovery modes. USB Jig does not work. There is no output on the screen, even when charging the battery. When connected in Windows (32 or 64), I get a usb error message: "This device is disabled because the firmware of the device did not give it the required resources. (Code 29)"
My question: Is the motherboard dead, or could a jtag repair fix it?
What I've tried:
- multiple micro usb cables
- usb jig
so the qhsusb_dload does not apear when your device is plugged into the computer? if so please hold on a little longer, somebody found a method of unhard bricking S3's and eventually Note 3's and the galaxy megas and im getting closer to being able to do this aswell im going to try to fix mine when i get home so hold on

"How do you know I'm mad?' said Alice.
"You must be,' said the Cat, 'or you wouldn't have come here."
