Default [Q] I Bricked my Samsung s3 i9300

I flashed my s3 i9300 with this rom I9300XWUGML4 (4.3 jellybean) from samsung-update.com but using odin but after success status reboot I am getting this error

"firmware upgrade encountered an issue"

I cant enter into recovery mode.But I can goto download mode.

I dont have CWM Recovery

Before flashing I noted my s3 i9300 info by dialling *#1234#

CP:I9300ZCELL1
CSC:I9300OJVALE7


Please help me in getting my mobile live again :/

Default Solution

As the hotfile.com was permanantly shutdown, it was difficult for me to find out the stock firmware for your device.

According to your description, I found this rom to match with it.

Click here to view

Download it and flash it like you did before.

Ensure you have followed the precautions that I have mentioned before.

If you want other Samsung S3 firmwares, here is the link to the same website: Click here to view

Try to flash it again and check whether it works.

If it doesn't, PM me soon. I will try to provide another solution.

Press thanks if I have helped you.

I am sorry I didn't mention precautions anywhere before. It was another thread. Lol

Precautions:

Make sure you flash stock rom after enabling download mode.

Also make sure you have downloaded the correct stock package for your phone and you have attached these package at the right place in odin.

Do not select any extra options in odin like erase nandroid and all. Just leave it as it is with the default settings.

Also make sure you have inserted your sdcard.
