Thanks for your interest. With a boot image on SD card the phone attempts to boot showing me this:

BOOT RECOVERY MODE
CHECK BOOT PARTITIONS.
COPY FROM T-FLASH.
BOOT RECOVERY
WRITE 159488 sectors
FLASH WRITE FAILURE
ODIN MODE

PRODUCT NAME: SPH-L710
CUSTOM BINARY DOWNLOAD: No
CURRENT BINARY: Samsung Official
SYSTEM STATUS: NONE
QUALCOMM SECUREBOOT: ENABLE



Flashing with ODIN is failing. I received the USB jig, it makes no difference. The jig itself is good, it puts my wife's GS3 in the download mode just fine.

Try flashing the pit file for the storage size and then flash the stock tar in download mode
Sign up for the new Copy file storage service with this link and get both of us an extra 5 GB!
Or sign up for Dropbox with this link and we can both grab some extra storage!

What I did was re partition several times. Then I partitioned and ran md4 see time. My phones been perfect now for a few weeks. Since fixing it. Originally it had rebooted from cm and went into boot loops. Recovery vanished. Would go into dl mode and shut down. Did this several times. I stayed persistent. It paid off.

I used ODIN 3.07, which looks like a correct version. I think that I have a hardware failure because the phone bricked not from a bad flash. Couple of times it lost power, but I could power it back on. It happened 4 or 5 times in a span of less than 24 hours. After the last power loss, the phone wouldn't turn on at all, unless I used the boot image on SD card.

I bought a phone with a cracked LCD off ebay, activated it on my account and swapped the motherboard. Kind of a radical way to unbick the phone, but it worked If there is anything else that can be done to the old motheboard, which is now in the cracked phone, I will appreciate an advice.
