So you flashed the bootchain in PDA, waited for the tar file to flash, your S3 rebooted on its own and it would not boot back up? Or did something else happen? I've used that thread and many others as you can see in there with no issues.

Cuz unfortunately that sounds like a hard brick and there's two ways of recovering from that. The first way is doing this which requires you to have a class 10 sdcard that is the same size as your phone's internal storage. The other way is paying and shipping it off to a third party service like MobileTechVideos.

I gave up. I went to the store and bought a Galaxy Note 2. I won't be rooting any more phones any time soon..
