BOOT RECOVERY MODE
CHECK BOOT PARTITIONS.
COPY FROM T-FLASH.
BOOT RECOVERY..
WRITE 159488 sectors..
FLASH WRITE FAILURE
ODIN MODE

PRODUCT NAME: SPH-L710
CURRENT BINARY: Samsung Official
SYSTEM STATUS: Custom
QUALCOMM SECUREBOOT: ENABLE
Warranty Bit: 1
BOOTLOADER RP SWREV: 2

Odin gave me this:

<ID:0/004> Added!!
<OSM> Enter CS for MD5..
<OSM> Check MD5.. Do not unplug the cable..
<OSM> Please wait..
<OSM> L710VPUCND8_L710SPRCND8_L710VPUCND8_HOME.tar.md5 is valid.
<OSM> Checking MD5 finished Sucessfully..
<OSM> Leave CS..
<ID:0/004> Odin v.3 engine (ID:4)..
<ID:0/004> File analysis..
<ID:0/004> SetupConnection..
<ID:0/004> Initialzation..
<ID:0/004> Get PIT for mapping..
<ID:0/004>
<ID:0/004> There is no PIT partition.
<OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 1)

After that, this came up on the phone's screen after the other text:
ODIN : flash read failure

Does this mean the internal memory is fried? Because that's what it sounds like to me but I'm far from an expert. Any more ideas?
I'm no expert in this area, but I think you're OK. Check the following; make sure your USB cable is working properly, make sure you have USB Debugging Mode checked in Settings, make sure you have a compatible version of Odin - I use v3.07, and make sure Re-Partition is not ticked, make sure your tar file is placed in the PDA slot, and lastly, make sure your tar file is not a corrupt download. I hope that helps..

Edit: Since you're able to enter Odin Mode, you should be able to enter Recovery Mode as well. You can also try restoring a backup, if you did so before all your troubles started..

This is your problem. You're going to have to repartition. Can't tell you how but I remember somebody with the 32GB model did it successfully, so all hope is not lost

If you have the 16GB SPH-L710, get the PIT file for it at http://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=23252070760972325, thanks to @kaos420 in this post http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...62&postcount=7 for it. Ignore that it says SPH-i710. That's a known typo.

Follow these instructions, compiled by myself and with contributions by @David.Dunbar in the following post http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...6&postcount=15, modified slightly for the 16GB PIT whereas he needed and used the 32GB PIT:

Quote:
Loading Stock ND8:
1 – Run Odin v3.07 as administrator
2 – Load L710VPUCND8_L710SPRCND8_L710VPUCND8_HOME.tar in the PDA slot
3 – Load sph-i710-16gb.pit into the PIT slot
4 – Check ‘re-partition’ box and wait for next steps to establish phone connection.
4.1 - Uncheck the reboot option in Odin.
Quote:
5 – Phone off. Enter download mode by holding down Vol Down, Home and Power to first screen presence
6 – Enter download mode by moving cursor – Vol Up.
7 – Plug phone into PC. Drivers are already installed so look for Connection in Odin.
8 – Start Odin on good battery charge. Don’t touch phone until complete, 5-10min.
9 – Close Odin, disconnect cable from phone, turn phone off and remove battery.
Removing the battery is the only way to turn it off at this point. Not exactly true but that's all you need to know. It's the best way.

Rooting via philz touch recovery:
1 – Put battery back in and enter download mode as above.
2 – Run Odin as administrator and load philz_touch_6.15.7-d2lte.tar.md5 in the Recovery slot
3 – Uncheck box to prevent automatic reboot.
4 – Plug in phone to PC and watch for Odin to establish connection, ~COM:5
5 – Start Odin. It will be quick.
6 – When done close Odin. Unplug phone, Power Down and remove battery.
7 – Replace battery and enter Recovery Mode by holding Vol Up, Home and Power to first screen presence
8 – Let Philz load and cursor to options/settings and choose re-root option.
9 – When done navigate to Philz main menu and wipe Cache.
10 – In Advanced, wipe Dalvik
11 – Philz main menu to reboot phone.

Here is a list of the files and executables you'll be working with:
Odin_v3.07.zip
L710VPUCND8_L710SPRCND8_L710VPUCND8_HOME.tar.zip (unzip this to get the tar out)
sph-i710-16gb.pit
philz_touch_6.15.7-d2lte.tar.md5 (use the very latest Philz instead)
Sprint_L710_GSIII_Samsung_USB_Driver_v1_4_6_0.exe

You guys are incredible trying to help me out like this! I wish I could report that this worked without a hitch but I got the same message in Odin saying "There is no PIT partition." And this time the phone also showed this at the end after trying to flash the PIT and stock tar files:
PIT FAIL : TOTAL SECTORS (0)
ODIN : flash read failure

This is what I'm looking at on the phone

Crap. Just checking, you did have the re-partition box checked in Odin before you clicked Start, right?

What does that "Copy from T-Flash" mean?

I absolutely did, in fact when I added the PIT file in Odin re-partition got checked automatically. And I made sure I used a good USB cable this time because the one I used when this whole thing started was a little wobbly and I'm wondering if that may have caused this.
