I have a galaxy s3 which after I turn it on it shows 0% on the battery and immedialtley turns off. i tried another fully charged battery and it does the same thing. It wont turn on at all unless it is plugged in. What is interesting is that in recovery mode or download mode once I boot into these modes when it is plugged in it will run on the battery fine if i pull the plug. In regular mode it shows 0% and shuts off. I reset it and no change.
I am running cwm and pacman rom. I reset and cleared the caches and fixed permissions but no change.
Any ideas ? Thanks

How long has this been going on for? 1 hour 1day 1 week?

Have you tried returning to unrooted stock?

Try that, re do everything and come back and let us know

Personally thats what id do...

Thanks. Is there anyway to figure out the rom version from download mode or recovery. i am not sure if the pacman rom is the 4.3 or earlier one. Phone does not seem to be in debugging mode so I cant use the toolkit. I am not sure if it is the 4.3 version which would mean I cant use the one file unroot which anyways I cant get the sdcard to mount.
Anyway to fix thsi from dowmloader mode without knowing the rom version i dont want to brick it.
been going on a couple of days.

Have you tried Flashing the Rom again ? Or possibly flashing a different Rom ?
