[Q] Need help unbricking a hard bricked Sprint GS3 (Yes, I did search already)
Alright, so I bought a Sprint GS3 16GB that was on stock 4.4.2 with no roms or root.
I installed a custom recovery and CM11 and everything worked fine and dandy.
That was until I tried to activate the phone on FreedomPop and couldn't. (That's another story)
Then, stupid I, tried to to go back to stock using this
Now my phone is hard bricked.
Won't power on
Red light if plugged in without battry.
If plugged into battery computer beeps but nothing shows in odin or anywhere else.
Can't boot to recovery or download mode.
What I have tried:
I read the first and last 200 posts from this thread: [GUIDE]Unbrick a Hard Bricked SPRINT Galaxy S3 (Without JTAG)
I tried using Cygwin
, Win32Disk, and a laptop running Linux.
I've followed all the instructions step by step.
I tried using a 16GB Class 10 SanDisk Ultra microsd card, a 8GB, and a 2GB.
I tried using each of those cards with Win32DickImager, Cywin64, and Linux.
Each time I tried the debrick_sph_l710 image and another sprint image posted in thread I was reading.
The only thing I noticed that might be helpful is when I write the image to the SD card using linux or Cywin(muchhh slower) and I plug the phone into the computer windows doesn't beep at all. But as soon as I take the card out it will beep.
Any help would be much appreciated.
Note: I was thinking about getting one of these
but someone said they won't help with a hardbrick.
