Good thread i'm on my 3rd SIII i bricked the other two and sent them back to tmobile (strangely they didnt charge me) but i know now research research research on using correct rom. I've installed tons of roms on other phones but assumed SIII would be no problem, I learned the hard way. These suckers brick easily, that's an expensive problem!!

No they don't actually brick easy. Its all user error. And if you've bricked two already you need to slow down and read man. Bricking one is hard enough but two? JeeZ

OP said wind roms and tmobile roms are interchangeable just don't flash the modems but its ok to flash roms well guess what, if i were you I WOULD NOT even flash interchangeable roms until I'm certain that the OP of a rom thread clearly states they are compatible, for example in the case of the Illusion rom that worked for both Tmobile and ATT and OP said rom is both compatible with either tmobile or att.

When people make custom roms they can add their own custom modem so unless you know for sure that the rom they cooked up doesn't have an incompatible modem then don't flash it.

Remember always becareful and double check. If you root and brick yourself, ODIN RETURN TO STOCK then.

Default Crapped Out...

Unfortunately, I just crapped my S3. I have a Nexus 7 and was working on both of them and accidentally flashed the N7 kernel on the S3.

Now I can't even turn on my phone. Won't start, won't boot----nothing.

S3 Brick, right?
Phone: Samsung Galaxy Note 3 with Galaxy Gear (both rooted)

Rom: Omega v12
