I managed to brick a phone and cant recover it using Kies or Odin since the auth signatures was updated on 4.3, trying to downgrade to 4.1.2 is what bricked it.
i couldn't get Odin 3.07 or 3.09 to work along with kies so what i did was, I went into a verizon retailer and told them that i took the OTA update to 4.3 and while it was installing my phone for some reason rebooted and when it rebooted it came to the "firmware upgrade encountered issue. please use software repair assistant & try again". they had never seen that message before and bought the story. so as result my phone is still indeed bricked but they took it as a factory defect and I am currently awaiting a new one in the mail. Iwould recomend doing that and not haveing a S3 for 2-5 days or wait for an exploit to come out for versin 4.3. Hopefully this helps.

Don't get mad at me for finding away to screw verizon out of 600$ for a brand new phone when i give them thousands every year. least they can do. But still dont see how this shows lack of self respect. but to wach his own no matter how stupid the opinion is.

Good day Sir.
Insurance fraud isn't justifiable by your bill amount. It isn't part of your bill. You're now part of the reason the bill is high.

Congratulations on being a narcissistic, corrupt person. Enjoy your sleep.

Personally I think they really didn't care if it was insurance fraud or not, they don't want to lose a customer, remember they have you on contract... If the phone said the warranty was still valid which comes up on the screen that informs that there was a problem installing firmware, then there has been no fraud committed. No reason to bash on other members and call them names.

And also how is this any different then flashing Roms and an insecure boot loader and later flashing back to stock to return it to Verizon?? That is more insurance fraud than trying to downgrade your recent ota with STOCK firmware

Dont know why updating then downgrading, when 4.3 is running awesome and it has more features than any 4.1 rom for the gs3. I unrooted and installed 4.3, and it was the best choice I made cause now battery life is excellent, and I get almost all the features that the s4 has. Ive been rooting android phones since I had a android. When tw 4.3 gets rooted im sure they will come with a unroot version that will unbrick you. You should have done more reading and research out of all the post explaining not to attempt to root or downgrade. You should have only upgraded if you didnt care about being stuck on 4.3
