[Q] Can't boot into recover, Rom won't boot, and PC doesn't recognize USB
It's been a fantastic day for me.
I was in the middle of a nandroid restore (TWRP). I was restoring a PAC Rom, and the ROM I was running was MROM (I liked the Rom, but it didn't have the Nav Bar, so it wasn't for me - it was running fine).
In the middle of the restore, my phone turned off. I was relatively close to 100% battery when I started to do the restore.
When the phone turned off, I tried to turn it back up, and it kept looping. I then tried to enter recovery, which I did. I didn't want to try restoring again, so I started to wipe with the intentions of flashing a fresh rom. But the phone turned off again. Now, it still won't boot up, and now I can't enter recovery. I get to the TeamWin screen, and it turns off.
I can enter download mode.
However, for the last several months, my computer never recognized my phone. Today,I've tried maybe five different usb cords (2 are S3 OEM) and four different USB ports. I've tried with Kies, and I have removed Kies. I tried with Odin open and more. No luck. I think my phone's usb jack is busted, but it charges fine from the computer.
My wife has an S3, too. Last I checked, she connects just fine to the computer, but she's at work now.
What do I do?
Can I somehow use my wife's phone to fix this awesome problem?
UPDATE: The USB port/jack is messed up. I am going to try and get the warrant to cover it.
