[Q] Bricked my GT-I9300 w/ TWRP... - Help, please!
Just tried to install TWRP (Touch) from the wrong forum on top of my existing recovery, I guess (not really sure what I did; was watching NFL simultaneously.. DANG!). And now my phone won't get past the boot screen anymore...
My International Galaxy SIII is (was) unlocked and rooted; running the U.K. (O2) version of Android 4.1.2.
Retracing my steps, it seems like I tried to install the US/Verizon recovery image of TWRP on my i9300 by mistake. When I downloaded the image from GooManager, it offered to install the image right upon completion. And thinking that I was in the correct XDA-Dev Forum section, I confirmed... Bad Mistake. (Yes... I know, I'm an idiot...).
FWIW, I've been 'messing' with my Smartphones + multiple Tablets for 6+ years now, but I never managed to brick anything thus far. Bad 1st time, as I am about to move back to Europe (from the US).
Phone does not show on Laptop (under drives/devices) anymore. I do know about ADB and some basic commands (..enough to install ROMs, boot into Recovery, Bootloader etc.), but what can I do if I don't even get passed the boot screen? What's the command I need, and how can that get me back on track?
-- Tried to shut down, use "the usual" power button/volume button combinations; even pulled SD card storage and SIM (as I had read that suggestion in the i-9000 Forum)... No dice.
I would kinda stink, but if I have to wipe my phone to make it work again, so be it... I have ROM Manager backups stored on my external SD card.
-- Any help & suggestions are greatly appreciated!
P.S.: Since I wanted to get rid of ClockworkMod, I did not take a Nandroid BU first...of course
