Hi! I've got a sticky situation here, my g3 is in a bootloop, not the normal bootloop, i'm in a "yup, you're f***ed" situation. Lets start here shall we?
The condition of my phone currently:
  • Volume buttons broken (not able to get into recovery/download mode)
  • Stuck at "GT-I5800" logo
  • Adb says no device connected (not being able to get into recovery/download mode, AGAIN)

Maybe i'm too ambitious but can my device be saved?

I think it's time to replace your phone if half the buttons are broken :|

I already have, i bricked the g3 like 2 months ago, tried to fix myself but can't so i'm asking for advice here. I like my gio though, i'm just striving to revive my old friend that taught me almost everything i know about android today.

Not really, my adb doesn't recognize the g3, it works fine with my gio though

All you can do now is take the battery out.......and you'll need to fix the volume keys

I've visited a friend that repairs phones, he says it's no use to try fix the volume keys, they are broken from the mainboard.
