so nice.

would send u may sgs2 but living in germany

watched a few disassembly vids on youtube and saw that it is easier to disassembly the s3 than the s2.
but it should be still easy to do

is there any special sd card needed like a special brand oder speed?

/ what i dont get. how long should i connect the rasistors with the wire? during i push the power button? then i should see a countdown on the display?

could not understand everything. i think a vid tutorial would be more useful

anyways great job adam

Default Running from SD card

Hi,

I managed to damage my i9300 board so that now, even without a short on the resistor, my phone skips the eMMC and goes directly to the SD card.
The damage happened when I tried to revive it from the "SDS" state, and used the Samsung service center solution.
I now get 3 lines of texts saying its tries to copy the sloader to the eMMC and fails (because my eMMC is now officially dead)

My question:

Can I ran the whole system from SD?
I imagine that my IEMI is lost, so it will never work as a phone, but a nice media player or a development platform could be useful.
I don't know much about this, but my guess is that if I can partition the SD the same way the eMMC is partitioned, and put everything on it - it should run.

I have a version of ODIN, that has a "t-flash" option, and I have a working i9300.

How do you suggest I go about making a "bootable" SD card?
and even more important - how do I protect my working i9300 from being bricked while I try this...? (If you have a solution that does not involve it - it will be the preferred one!)

Thanks,
Arik.

hi, I've got bricked sgs3 i9300 and would like to unbrick it with this method. I got stuck on resistor shortage - can anybody show me the proper resistor on i9300 board? Or it's yet unknown?

Can i try with the resistor R313 from [Galaxy S III][IMPORTANT] GT-I9300 Hard Brick Fix ?
