Hi all I have an old S3 that seems to have kicked the bucket. I am hoping there is some way to save it though. I have been running the last CM 11 milestone for a long while now. I just use the phone with an archlinux chroot to do some linuxy-things. I tried ssh'ing into the phone while I was at work the other day and the ssh session hung. Upon getting home the screen was black and wouldn't turn on. I tried pulling the power and restarting and it just hung at the CM boot logo.

It would boot into TWRP recovery or download mode but never boot. I eventually noticed in TWRP that it said my internal storage was 0MB large and found that the userdata partition was corrupt (e2fsck wouldn't work)

I've tried every combination of flashing a stock .tar and/or .pit file but nothing seems to change.

Here is the output I get when trying to repartition with odin:

Code:

Question
I could be wrong here, but it sounds like your eMMC Chip may have died. I don't have specific experience of this ever happening to any of my phones, but it just popped into my head as an idea.

Yeah, this is what it sounds like to me. Anyone know if there is a way to verify this?
