[Q] Firmware upgrade encountered
So I recently did a factory restore on my S3 for verizon after trying to get the ota update, and for some reason when i connect my device to my laptop it will disconnect randomly.
Now it booted to a screen that says firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please use software repair assistant & try again.
The problem is I tried that and it always gets to like 98% and then it says the phone is disconnected. I can't restart the phone as it always goes back to this screen...
I had flashed a stock recovery and did a factory reset, so I'm not sure why this is happening.
I tried to do an emergency firmware restore in kies, but kies won't even recognize my device.
WHAT DO I DO
