This does work. I have just gotten to download mode after coming from hardbrick QCMUSB_DLOAD mode. You MUST use something > 32g SDHC. I Used 64g SDXC, still worked. I'm back up and running.
Excellent! truly Excellent. XDA community is GREAT!
i need some help. i downloaded something on my sprint s3 that apparently I should not have and immediately hardbricked. Want even turn on no response to buttons etc. What can I do?? I used it for so much other than my phone. Please help
It is best to read the entire thread before posting, to make sure your question has not already been answered. Some users get annoyed when explaining something when the answer is 3 posts above. Unless your S3 is not 4.3 your solution is in the OP. If you cannot download the file, tell them the link is broken.
XDA Developers was founded by developers, for developers. It is now a valuable resource for people who want to make the most of their mobile devices, from customizing the look and feel to adding new functionality. Are you a developer?
