Default Did I...

I'm pretty sure I hard bricked my S3. I go to turn it on and all it will do is vibrate once. I can't get into download, or recovery. Before that it would get stuck at the galaxy s3 boot image, and I could get into both download and recovery. I tried factory reset and what not and well now I'm here.

USB jig or JTAG service, jig is not guaranteed to work. Have you tried this method HERE?

Okay, how do I download to external SD? I got a new HTC One M8, and I can't seem to figure out how to download it directly to my SD card

I tried that using ES File Explorer, but it won't work for some reason. Then I switched my download folder on Opera to my external SD, but now every time I try to download something using Opera it fails. So I switched it back to my internal downloads folder and it works again.... so idk what to do.... Are you still on the E4GT by the way?

I still have it, but my main device is the S3, are you able to connect your phone to a PC? Just move the file to external SD from your PC.

In the Browser settings it should give you the option to choose where the DL is going.

Did you give ES File Explorer Root privileges ?
