[Q] Help needed - I9305N broke android and cant flash ROM, nor update CWM.
Been trying for hours to get my GS3 (i9305N) working again.
I am running CWM recovery 188.8.131.52. I had a rooted Stock ROM.
I wanted the latest nightly build of Cyanogenmod, which I've downloaded from their site get.cm.
I also bought Mobile Odin from the playstore after reading how easy it is to use... The load bar got stuck at 20% when flashing the new ROM in mobile odin, after an hour I decided to reboot the phone because it was probably never going to finish.
Now I can only get into CWM and download mode.
I've also tried to update CWM to latest, but it seems impossible to do so with only an .img and not .tar.md5 unless u can access mobile odin... which imo ruined my phone.
In CWM, when trying to install CM 10.2.zip I get an error message saying.
From what I've read the CM for i9305 should be compatible with i9305N aswell, is this true?
yada yada ...
assert failed: getprop("ro.product.device") == "m3" || getprop("ro.build.product") == "m3" || getprop("ro.product.device") == "m3xx" || getprop("ro.build.product") == "m3xx" ||
getprop("ro.product.devide") == "i9305" || getprop("ro.build.product") == "GT-I9305" || getprop("ro.build.product") == "GT-I9305"
E: Error in /sdcard/cm-10.2-20130820-NIGHTLY-i9305.zip
I've also tried to flash several other recoveries with Odin v3.07 for PC.
Which gets stuck at "Get PIT for mapping..." and then says "Complete(write) operation failed."
I am somewhat of a n00b when it comes to flashing ROMs and managing my phone on this level.
I hope someone can help me get my phone to work again.
Do I need to get latest CWM recovery in order to flash the latest cm ROM?
or how do I get passed that error message when trying to flash the ROM?
